1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Woke up early in the morning to go the bathroom and was shocked to see a few big Cockroaches running around in the room. I actually stepped on one and my husband killed a second one. Notified the receptionist Cally and was told that “you are on an island. It’s common to see cockroaches…” she went on and on to justify without an apology until I told her that it’s not acceptable to have cockroaches in the room and demanded to speak with the general manager who claimed to be busy and no time to speak to us. Additionally, the bathtub was not cleaned on the second day. The beach sand and hair were all over the bathtub. We were extremely disappointed in cleanliness of the room and how the hotel addressed the issues.
