This place really need an upgrade, both outside, at the common areas and in the rooms. It is really worned out!! The seaview is nice and it's close to the city center! It's also nice for snorkeling and taking a bath directly from the hotel. No WIFI in the rooms, only in the reception.

I know for the price this place wasn't over 3 star. But the shock of what greeted me was definitely Not what I expected. When I went to my room I was greeted with a gigantic hole in my towel, the shower was so filthy, built up scum all up the walls and in the bath, there was No Way... More

For the price I was not expecting luxury at all. For that reason I was not disappointed by the many faults at this location. From squeaky doors, lizard invasion, leaky rooms, no hot water etc. I would say this is more suited for locals visiting from another parish who just needs a place to crash for the night or to...

We were in no way looking for a 4 star hotel, but this place was horrific. We were forced to pay cash before even seeing the room, and upon being so disgusted by the filth, the black mold, broken doors, and horribly rude staff, we turned right around and walked out. They of course wouldn't give us our money back,... More

Terrible place....shocked that it's even on the website. Someone from the website needs to go and visit the place. Pictures are very old. Stayed one night then changed to a proper hotel. Manager wanted to charge for an extra night but after cross words got money back. Thought we'd give it a chance but DON'T GO.

We were only in Ochi for a few nights, and were traveling around the island. For us, this a inexpensive place to stay on the water. The food was good, and you are close to town. It is not a five star resort, so if that's what you are looking for, this isn't the place for you. For us, it... More

I stayed at the hotel with my father and two of my cousins for a few days and we truly enjoyed our stay. Although we were not at the hotel very much during the day, coming back during the night and enjoying the beautiful view, breakfast, pool and ocean in the mornings was perfect. We all had a great time... More

We stayed here a few nights. The staff, especially Brandon, was amazing. About the hotel itself, don't get to excited about the private beach. It's not really suitable for sunbathing. It might be (a little bit) worn down, but it is clean and the atmosphere and views are great. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it therefor.
