This hotel is great if you know you will barely be in your room. It is not fancy & is very plain and old. Good things are you are within walking distance to the beach and some of the souvenir shops and you don't have to worry about getting sand everywhere when you come back from the beach because you...

NEVER NEVER NEVER will I stay here again! We usually stay at another place, but with a quick trip planned, there weren't many options. Take it from me, if there is still a room available when EVERYONE else is booked...it's for a reason! PLEASE READ THE REVIEWS!!! My back had given out while at the beach which made for a... More

When my son and I checked in we were terrified as the office was dirty and shabby. The female owner who checked us in was very pleasant. This trip was a present for my son's 21st birthday, so I wanted it to be a fun experience. The front door of our room appeared to be dirty as well, but it... More

When we checked in, we were given the key to Cottage 11. We were shocked when we stepped into the cottage. The pictures are old, outdated, and intended to deceive. If you have allergies, have young children, elderly family members, or have any immune compromising condition, STAY AWAY! Staph is just one germ that is lurking under the dust. The... More

We could overlook the dirty 1/2 broken furniture (after all you get what you pay for, but be aware the pictures on the website are very deceiving). We could overlook the fact that we didn't get the room layout that we reserved a month in advance (mistakes happen and 1/2 of our "party" were small children so we made do).... More

Very rude, wants to argue. Will never stay there again. The room did not have towels, we asked and the didn't want to give them to us. They accused us of steeling them. We had to argue just to be me to take shower. The wall plugs were fake-the whlole thing came out of the wall! Offers a kitchen but... More

STAY AWAY. You may want to save money, but this is NOT the way to do it. Filthy. Old. Disgusting. Bugs everywhere, lousy attitude of owner, who obviously gets first timers to the island and steals their money! You'd be cleaner and safer sleeping in a dumpster.
