2/10 Terrible


Business traveler, Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice concept but poorly executed. HORRIBLE interior. Sewer gas smell in bathroom and shower did not work - NO hot water. Room has the ambiance of a jail cell and was very sloppily renovated - many things unfinished. Towels were tiny and sour - horrible smelling. Exterior ammenities fell short also. Hot tub was not working and there were not enough grills for multiple residents to use - one guest hogged the only decent grill by taking it to the patio of his room so no one else could use it. Add to this the barking dogs and loud unruly children running around, and you have an island weekend from hell. Stay elsewhere!

We liked it. But the pool is so small that it was always full and we never got to use it. Also we stayed 2 days and when we got home we all tested positive for Covid (and we never went anywhere besides the beach and our room)
