This hotel has become one of the worst hotels that I have ever stayed. It was bad from the beginning. The room was not ready, had no shower head and water leaking everywhere. The hotel manager promised that the room would be ready in 10 mmins, but from the look at it, it would take another 2 hours and thus I demanded to change the room. The new room was ready, but so dirty and I really hesitate to walk on my bear foot. To make the matter worse TV had no remote

I stayed for almost two weeks and had a beautiful time. The staff was very nice and helpful all the time, even when I got sunburn, needed some adapter for free or when I needed help with organizing my travelling trough the island. The hotel manager is a big gentleman and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends or family.

The pictures make the room look quirky and comfortable but what you get is damp, moldy walls with uncomfortable bedding and stained EVERYTHING. Not usually too critical but as soon as I walked in I wished I could walk out and changing rooms did NOT help. Breakfast was dismal - the only positive was the pool.

Nice quiet hotel. Room was clean and had satellite television with a fridge and a balcony. The pool was good and most of the time empty. Well situated for the wine shop and the beach. Good value for your money.

Arriving at the 'resort' looks ok from the front the more you venture in... the worse it got. I had a back room, up flights of stairs, through the 'restaurant' and out the back. Balcony was the best part of this room which over looked the pool. Sadly the pool water was cloudy and at the deep end had a 'green tinge' to it; and I don't recommend swimming in it! Air-conditioning unit old and very noisey. Bathroom was full of mould and shower curtain mouldy also. Tap in hand basin came out of when flicked on for cold water. Timber window was rotten in one corner and had a hole in it. This place is very run down, nothing like the photos at all. Breakfast, I only ate bread as the 'burners' for the hot food were not turned on and things were cold. Restaurant old, table cloths not washed...... Overall it was that bad, 5 of us on the tour requested to be moved to another hotel. The villas at the far... far back had a stench to them and doors to those rooms did not close. Find a hotel closer to a nicer beach. Positive: beautiful restaurant across the road Sun N Sea, excellent food, well priced, great ocean view....

The hotel is well located near the beach. We stayed in a villa room, which was clean, spacious and had all the facilities we required. The staff were cordial and very helpful. All in all, the hotel presented itself as pleasant and homely. Definitely will be back soon! Money well spent.
