5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We went for our anniversary. We biked the island and enjoyed the sites.

Stayed here during the off-season (late October) on a mother-daughter get-away. The staff was very sweet and upgraded us to a larger room as we were the only folks in the place on our first night. The room however was a little tired (grungy couch) and the bed had to be 3.5 ft off the ground, which was very difficult for my mother to climb into. We asked for a step stool and were given the two-step fold up step ladder that the on site handy man uses. Additionally - the take-away breakfast was just...not edible. I understand covid makes things difficult, but for the price (expensive even in off season) - I was expecting a higher level of amenity and accommodation. The bathroom was really nice though!
