Stayed for three nights. Nice reception, bored assistant though. Spacious room with the smallest shower / toilet we've ever encountered! Otherwise, it had a wash basin In the room, free wifi and I think there was meant to be some kind of offering at breakfast but didn't bother. When I heard there were golf carts everywhere I thought they were... More

We are staying in the new annex. The rooms are lovely: clean, comfortable and the location is perfect. Hotel staff is very friendly and attentive. The courtyard with the continental breakfast and fire pit is just beautiful. I will definitely recommend this place and hopefully stay here again. What an amazing island!

We rented a family cottage here. Although there was no A/C, the fans helped pull in the cool night air and we were comfortable. Space in the room with the queen bed was a bit tight. But the service was wonderful, they were so friendly and helpful, and the location is so convenient both to the shops and the dive... More

It was just a couple blocks from the casino. The restaurants are nearby but they're not right in your face so you have some quiet. We had a kitchenette in our bungalow which made for romantic cozy breakfasts

We stayed in the annex down the street from the main hotel. We had access to the balcony and view at the main hotel but enjoyed the quiet solitude of our courtyard annex. nice mattress on the large king size bed, very clean with lots of towels and quiet air conditioning.

It was a very nice little room & very comfortable & quiet. The staff was well informed & the continental breakfast was very simple (donuts & coffee). Stayed in 2 different rooms. My favorite was the one on the 3rd floor with a shared balcony where you can relax and see the harbor.

Room was small but clean. If you are staying along time I would not stay there but if you are in town for 1-3 nights this place is fine. Breakfast is just coffee, juice and donuts. The lady at the front desk was friendly. They will hold you bags after checkout but beware they are just held in plain view... More

The hotel was picked because of the promotion they advertised if it was your birthday. I booked the hotel with the discount applied and had a confirmation showing the correct total. After I checked out and checked my credit card statement I found the hotel overcharged me and removed the birthday discount. When I called and inquired about it the... More

First off, we couldn't get a hold of anyone to send the shuttle, so paid for a taxi. Upon check in we were told the shuttle cost is the same as a taxi, so that wouldn't have helped anyway, except to save us time. I wasn't informed there wasn't a/c. And the room was a sauna! No breeze and no... More
