The resort pools and little beach with a beach bar are great. The staff service at front desk was very unfriendly and did not make us feel welcome when we first arrived, they separated our group in different areas of the resort even though we all booked together. However, we still really enjoyed our stay by using the pools and beach every day, Good location too

It’s the best location, you can walk everywhere. Very close to the beach and access to the main resort’s pools and beaches. Loved the designated breakfast area in Dewey house terrace. Very comfy bed and beautiful shared patio and terrace which almost made up the fact that my room had no view at all and i pretty much had to keep the blinds closed. Also, very thin walls, you can hear the neighbors talking. Overall I would go back, just for the location and resort access which were great.

The whole complex location and amenities were all very nice but we were disappointed with the size of our room and especially the very tiny bathroom..

The pool was dirty and freezing. The resort fee is absolutely ludicrist. Wexstayed one night at the guest house and the charge for the resort fee was 70 plus tax. Thisxis outrageous. The bed waschard as rock. Canadians do not stay here. We paid over 700 canadian for one night and the hotel was at the other end of island. Marilyn and keith were fantastic but people look for better deals. Hotels near mallary square we selling walkins for 240 a night. Think twice about booking on advance.

Disliked Duval Gardens, room was tiny and old, not updated, very dingy. It was a few blocks from where we thought we'd be at Avalon. Management moved us when we complained. If you can handle the condescension and a bit of snobbery from front desk staff, they will make the situation right and move you to a better room. Overall it was good. Breakfast at main resort was much better than at the Duval annex.

Very nice property with its own beach. Great location. Friendly staff (especially the breakfast and snack crew - Tina and Ophelia) and clean rooms. Couple things though: 1) Get rid of the air conditioning units with built-in lights. Made the room too bright at night. 2) Keep the beach clean - rake the seaweed that washes ashore. The staff on the beach had a rake but apparently did not know how to use it.

The Swimming Pools were very nice!!! The first day we got our trash took out, clean towels bed made that was the only time. We had to keep asking for towels everyday. Ask for lotion they brought a bottle a day later then charged 20 for it and I didnt take it home made sure it was left in room. Our room was very small didn't look like pictures on the website. No place to set but on the bed. Ran out of shampoo and conditioner told the maid but never got any.

So let’s start off with cleanliness. The room was clean-ish when we got there. The body soap was empty when we got there and remained empty the entire week. No one refilled it whatsoever. We had two days that we put out our do not disturb sign it had someone knock at 8:30 and then again at 9:30 to see if we were in the room still needed a cleaning.????? I guess I don’t understand the point of a do not disturb sign. There was a trail of ants that stayed in our bathroom on the floor the counter the walls. We booked southernmost thinking we were gonna be staying at the southernmost I looked back at the booking and all it says is guest house. The last time we’ve stayed with southernmost they did not on this property. We were assuming we would be around the actual southernmost resort in one of the guest houses over there which we have stayed in and we enjoyed. Unfortunately that’s not where we were And we will never stay here again. We have probably stayed with the southern most five or six times at this point and this has been by far the worst experience. The walls are also paper thin and every single morning all we heard was I believe the staff cackling and carrying on with each other. Ironically the couple of times we did not but I did you not disturb sign our room was not cleaned at all. It happened to us two days where no water was brought in no sheets were changed no new towels nothing. Once again this was the most underwhelming experience that we’ve had with southernmost a
