Upside: I very much liked the beach, the ferry, the bbq and the pool. The views were amazing. Ferry driver Noel was exceptional in his hospitality and knowledge. Downside: towels were dingy, the sliding balcony door didn’t latch properly and no one answers the local number or toll free number in the office.

The property was ok lots of iguanas we stay in the residential area it’s a little more than the actual hotel it’s a 2bdr condo I would definitely suggest renting this and for the money and view it’s the best thing on This island the pool was absolutely closed so if your looking to go for a swim negative it’s closed and looks as if it was closed before covid but the beach is literally a 30second walk. I like how the ferry to the local town where there were restaurants and bars it ran quickly the driver who drove at night was a little rude but all was well overall all I give it 8 my time here was pleasant and I would stay again if I came again

Bar and restaurant are both on the island and the food there is amazing as well. The rooms are good. Imean your in the carribean so who sits and watches tv all day? They are clean and secure. I loved this place!!!!
