Spent three days at this "so called" hotel. Pros: Great locations: walking distance to the airport, beaches and nightlife. Cons: The room was very dated. The bed was uncomfortable and the sheets were dirty and smelly. There was no warm water in the bathroom. There was no soap provided in the bathroom to wash hands. There was a small fridge... More

Paid a visit to the hotel with family in February 2015 and was rather disappointed. At one time this hotel was something to talk about. Now, maintenance has fallen down so that everywhere there are signs of deterioration if not dilapidation. A visit to the pool found it closed. Furniture and furnishings are somewhat decrepit. You better bring your own... More

The hotel was getting old and pool was closed, but Mark and Jeal was friendly and had good hospitality. Even I arrived early, they gave the room without extra fee. I enjoyed their parrot and humming birds and other birds. It was not so far from Store Bay, less than 10 minutes by walk.

Facilities aren't great granted, but I didn't personally travel 10 hours in a plane just to sit in a resort by the pool with a load of other English people - if you want that type of holiday, go to Spain or Greece IMO. The best feature is definitely the fantastic management. Michael is a lovely chap if you get... More

Pros: Close to Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Airport and eating places. Cons: Where do we begin? Service was poor, MAJOR upgrades needed for rooms, grounds and pool. Bathroom smelled, kitchen was in desperate need of an update. Wi-fi does not extend to rooms near the front of the compound. All in all it is not for persons looking for more... More

I really hope that Management take the time to look at these reviews because i am not one for bringing down a place but no part of this Hotel is Golden. The Only Good Thing about this Hotel in my honest and humble opinion is the Location and that is in Crown Point and Close to the Airport. Upon Check... More

This place should not be called a 'hotel'. You really pay for what you get with this place. The room is small. Kitchenette needs major upgrade. The cable broke down (not sure if this is the cable company or hotel's issue though). The bedding looked like an old curtain. ICK! Furthermore, there was a framed photograph of a cashew with...

Terrible hotel with terrible facilities, rooms are run down and so is the swimming pool and the restaurant/bar! On arrival I left passports with front desk so they where safe but that was bad idea because as we were leaving the owner left the cook in charge and hadn't left passports with her so we had to wait an hour...
