No loitering after check out!
Posted May 10, 2016
Stayed May 5-8, 2016.
Overall, place is good in terms of cost performance. Great for couples who want to do their own thing, enjoy the quiet beaches, limited nightlife, self cater and cook (there is a kitchen). Buccoo is a quiet fishing village other than Sunday nights when they host special events by the harbour.
Owner (Brandon) can be moody at times. Sometimes, not so professional and could be a hypocrite. Avoiding him is the best. I was advised that checkout was at 10am and of course, I respected that and was getting ready since 9am. I get a knock at 9:40am that the cleaner is coming at 10am (no cleaner ever showed up. I think he was cleaning himself at some point) and I need to get out. Well, it was nice of him to let me know, but the way he returned my deposit and the intention of checking if "I was awake and getting out on time?" was clearly obvious. I left the room exactly at 10am.
I wanted to leave my bag there, since ferry ride at 5pm. Brandon tells me no and points to the no loitering sign. Meanwhile, another guy leaves the bag and goes out for the day. Tries to give me a lesson that guests upon checkout should not be loitering in his property. Hm, is that how you treat your guest that just stayed there? I managed to eat my breakfast and left the compound at 11am. There is hardly anyone staying at the place to begin with.
