The staff constantly complained about the management and I can see why.To families, there is nothing for children to do there at all.The parking sucked and you felt like your in a constant construction zone.Quaint is not even close.Old with new paint is more like it.The restaurant and bar closed so early I can see why NO ONE goes there...

We traveled from Los Angeles Ca. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday. So it was not a long stay and in the middle of Spring Break. Hotel was clean, beds where very comfortable as we laid down exhausted every night. Room had kitchenette as well as full service restaurant and bars on the property. Extremely convenient foe all types... More

This place is a dump! The room was filthy, the floor was cracked, I found two cockroaches, I found hair on my pillow, the cable box kept falling out from behind the tv and you couldn't change the channel unless you leaned way over to the left and pointed it at the box. On top of it being a total... More

We thought we reserved a downstairs room, but they said no. That's how it started. The upstairs room (number4) was a dump. Not very clean but acceptable. The bathroom door has an old rusty eye hook inside because it won't stay closed. There is no hot water. When I complained the manager told me it was because everyone was probably... More

I'd like to thank you for taking the time to review our resort. And, I'll take the time and clear up a few things. As for the hot water, we have plenty of hot water in all of our rooms as we do in the entire property. We do however have some of our faucets a little on the quirky... More

I don't have a single bad thing to say about this little resort. Had a great stay for the price we got at the last minute. It's not a 4 star hotel by any means, and you receive an actual key (which I think is totally awesome and rustic!) The continental breakfast was actually surprising, and the location is perfect!...

Dilapidated structure through piles of earth and rubble; just arrived we had to find the reception which is a kind of closet always with no one to talk to. The first room was nice, but the loud noise of the refrigerators of the adjacent bar makes it impossible to sleep . They changed the room, uglier than the first but... More

I'd like to address this review with the utmost respect. I clearly remember you as our guest. And I also recall that the lady had an accident and we transferred you into another room to accommodate to this accident. I'm sorry about the street construction. Wec can not do much about that. More

I feel bad writing bad reviews because most people are trying, but I do not want this place to ruin your vacation. Most of the staff here are great, location was okay as it was right on the water which made it cute. The only problem with the location was the traffic noise. The first room we stayed in was...

We'd like to thank you for taking the time to review our resort. This doesn't sound like our place at all. We'd like to start off by apologizing if indeed one of our staff members where rude to you. We will look into this matter in further detail. More

Nothing fancy here folks. Its a small place, rooms are clean, staff is outstanding. Food was ok, but the happy hour was great. Talking with the locals was really cool. Met some new friends. Road construction was a pain but its all over the island. It is a bit overpriced, but we stayed in-season.

Wonderful stay. Rooms are real cute, clean and well kept. Staff was fabulous. food at the restaurant was so-so. Not bad, but could be better. All together, a very surprisingly nice place. The bar area on the dock is a nice touch, but the selection of music/bands could be improved. Didn't play late so as not to annoy the quests.... More

They were painted, but the bathroom was gross with rusty Soap dishes etc. the kitchen sink was all chipped and disgusting. The prices were outrageous. Stay elsewhere. One night I slept in my car.
