We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! Our room felt more like an apartment, we had tons of room to move around and we settled in really quickly. The room had more amenities than we needed but it would be good for someone staying long-term. The room was very clean, colourful, and tastefully decorated. Having the straw market... More

My husband and I travel to this place twice a year. We love it because of the boutique atmosphere and laid back staff. Rooms are nothing fancy yet comfortable...the views of the bay are lovely and comforting. Service is great yet unobtrusive... Which I prefer!! Restaurants are plentiful and mostly wonderful...trial and error. There's a ferry that takes you to... More

This hotel was perfect for our "total rest and relaxation" holiday. Quiet, clean, well-equipped and very helpful staff. It was smaller and less glitzy than the big resorts nearby, and the waterfront restaurant Sabor was excellent, much better than most of the restaurants in the Marketplace. Not too family-friendly due to the room layouts but perfect for a couple.

Lovely and calm hotel with great views. If you look for a smaller cozy properties with local flavors and away from the mass with screaming kids, this one is a great choice. The General Manager is always available for his guests.

I have stayed at a number of hotels in the Freeport area and so far this is the best one however your expectations still be reasonable. Service if good and rooms are clean however interior is slightly dated but everything does work. The grounds are actually quite nice. I have dined at Sabor several times and while the service is...

The hotel is very nice. The rooms have refrigerators and if you want to spend a little more, they have very nice suites for a more upscale experience. They are right next to UNEXSO for diving and just a short walk to Lucaya Marketplace for lots of dining choices and some basic convinience stores. The Lucaya Marketplace is the place... More

The one-bedroom suite claims to have a full kitchen. Ours had no stove, no silverware, no pots or pans, 3 dishes and two cups plus two coffee machines. Aso no kitchen table or chairs. We had to eat at the desk with one chair. The in-room safe would not lock, but they happily replaced it. Not easy since it was... More
