size of rooms, being in the woods, being on pender

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Don’t stay here!

The only thing that was good about this was it’s loca on a beautiful cove which gave us access to the sea on an island where sea access is difficult. Large noisy wedding meant a night if peace and quiet was not an option. Spa was closed - looked decrepit anyway! Restaurant was closed. Bistro is a big cold bar like place - food very average. Room very tired and had not been cleaned properly- some items did not work! Sheet on bed wrong size and inside out. Balcony could not be used as wedding guests on the patio below talking, shouting and smoking. We were glad to leave - wouldn’t have stayed if there had been another option on the island!

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Property is extremely run down with need for deep deep cleaning. 1st flr appeared to be a frat house with old leather couches laying around, staircases always dirty/dusty, furniture old and torn in lobby and rooms, carpets so very nasty dirty and old...exterior was nice and secluded, but needs to be upgraded in furniture. Room was so scratched up, dusty and carpets stained. Fitness room old machines with only a sink that was rusty; no amenities for fitness room such as towels, etc for a resort!
