My wife and I (along with 46 friends) spent two fantastic weeks in the Dover Beach Hotel in May 2014. The rooms and facilities were clean and operational. The staff (from Marcia, the manageress, to the cleaners and gardeners were all extremely helpful and friendly). The atmosphere was very welcoming and homely. Having a small kitchen in our room was...

Spent two very enjoyable weeks in this hotel at the beginning of May. What (very) friendly helpful service. Okay, so the comments about some aspects of some rooms being a wee bit dated might be justified, but those problems were well offset by the other aspects. All that we could have wanted in a hotel was well catered for. Reception,and... More

Arriving here we had a smile on our faces almost as large as all of the staff who we found without exception to be a truly happy and helpful team. We stayed in an Ocean View Studio and found the room a good size with the most perfect view of the Caribbean from the balcony. The ocean is the most... More

Superb staff, cannot praise enough. My mum was asking about local fruits and where the best place to buy different items were, and a couple of days later on finding out that my mum still hadn't tried local mangoes, the lady at reception (whose name I feel so terrible at having forgotten) in her own time went and picked mangoes...

I needed a hotel room for one night. My cab driver recommended this hotel. It is close to the airport, clean and secure. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Just up the street were many bars and eateries.

The pictures and the description is a bit misleading, it looks more luxury than it is. And the price would be for a more luxorious hotel as well. Sure it's a nice apartment with everything you need but our room needed some improvements and was a bit worn. No curtain in the bathroom window so people could see right in!... More

Quite disappointed as this hotel has really lost its sparkle. The room was OK, basic yet it was described as delux. The eatery was very poor. Staff working there really had no interest in the service (or lack of it I should say), no customer service skills, poor quality of food. The coffee was the oddest colour I've ever seen.... More

The pros: Ocean view room had gorgeous view. The room was easily accessed in hotel, small property. Our room had generous sized fridge and freezer. The pool towels were free. Mary at the activities desk was as pleasant as they come. Short walk to many restaurants and also a convenience store and car rental place. The cons: Our 'bed' was... More
