Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Hotel to avoid
we had a booking 18-20 July but couldn’t get there as all flights cancelled. We had 5 hotels Booked and all but this one cancelled without question due to COVID. I offered to change booking to May 2021 but this was refused. I find this unfair as every other hotel on our trip agreed to cancel. They even confirmed that there were no flights so it was impossible to get there. This hotel clearly puts money before people and lacks any humanity. We will be going to the island in 2021 but certainly won’t stay with this establishment.

Very cool place to stay. Walking distance to pier and downtown. Great free breakfast. We enjoyed the 2 dinners we had there. Comfortable beds and AC. Loved the sitting area outside our room with the 2 hammocks. Great way to relax after a long, hot day. Staff was very helpful.

Things to consider before you book
The Hotel was quaint and clean. We booked a room with a twin and full bed and received a room with two twins. The room was very small, no room for luggage. I had to jump over my bag to get to the bathroom or door. Our bathroom door was an accordian style door which was not functioning properly and did not close, hence no privacy in the bathroom. I did get to peek into other rooms and they looked larger. Things to consider, this hotel is not in the town. It's a 10-15 minute walk into town. There is only wifi in the common area. The manager was attentive and the property was clean. We used the laundry service and it was very reasonable and quick. I only ate breakfast, it was basic but fine. Having to tell them in advance of dinner plans is a bit of a hassle since we didn't know our plans but I imagine it's a nice option is you don't want to walk into town at night.
