The place to go to get pampered.
We stayed in the Pearl suite which was very comfortable and clean. It is very small hotel and very personable and friendly. Ro makes sure that all residents are well taken care of. Our suite looked out right onto the beach with only a sitting area in between. The room was spotless. WiFi was excellent. The adjoining restaurant had great food. Complimentary breakfast is included each day. We had a late afternoon flight out of SXM, but Ro let us check out and stay on the property. The beach too is very well kept with lots of lounges, umbrellas and bar service. The hotel is just across the road from the runway and it is so neat to see the planes/jets come and go throughout the day. It is nice and quiet at night. This is a great place to unwind and relax.

Love it here!! If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with amazing views on the most beautiful beach ever... this is your place. If you want a 5 star luxury hotel with every ammenity, you may want to pass this up. It is super relaxed and casual. Friendly staff. Great food. Simple, clean and out of the way from most of the hustle bustle. I'd stay over and over again. But...I love casual.
