This place should not be in business, the place has a very un easy feeling about it, not nice, staff was as rude as could be, I promise there are other hotels that offer so much more for the same price, un clean, mismanaged, rude staff , far away from everything

The hotel was clean,staff friendly. We did find it strange that there were few guests but its not all inclusive so maybe thats why. But the beach was amazing, we all loved it. Kids loved the fact that they were paddling in water with several different types of fish and especially to have seen a few star fish. If you... More

I stayed at this resort while overnighting in Antigua. I wasn't sure what to expect by the reviews. This hotel is a good distance from the main town / airport. but after a 15-20 taxi ride we arrived at the hotel. The property is vast and you can tell is was a Grand hotel in its day. Its now rather... More

This by far had to be the worst "resort" I've ever booked. Even though there were over 800 rooms, I counted a total of 13 guest in the ENTIRE resort. The staff was rude and disgruntled. The "all-Inclusive" amenities is misleading. The food is ala-carte but depends mostly on availability. Most times the selection was limited to hamburgers and fries.... More

Upon arrival, there was a barrier & gate attendant but on the drive up to the hotel, the tennis courts were grown over & broken exterior netting, which obviously created a v bad 1st... More

On a hike to Fort Barrington last week, we walked through the grounds and main building of this hotel. What a mess. Tennis courts mouldy/heaving, unused for years, fences collapsed, parched grounds, cracked pavements, no people. Our very knowledgeable guide explained this hotel has changed hands several times - and now…it is falling apart. Inside, the large lobby area was... More
