We stayed at this hotel as a pit stop on a mini vacation. We stayed here two nights. The rate was very reasonable during the week but the weekend rate was much, much higher. The room was nice. It was what I expected from Holiday Inn. The pool was nice and clean. The only problem I had with the pool... More

Stayed for two nights. Rooms are clean- usual hotel types-no surprises. Staff friendly and helpful. It's a two-three block walk to beach (clean, no seaweed). Pool is small(needed cleaning)'Left one day early because price more than doubled on w/e and I didn't feel the hotel was worth the price. Overal a good stay.

This hotel may not have beach access but the pool is private and nice. The staff went out of their way to help us with our requests. Price was more than fair for the island. Yosunni, at the front desk was wonderful. Breakfast was a typical holiday express version which is always good.

Spent Thursday thru Saturday at this hotel. Left early because of the walk to the beach and the arrival of loud bus loads of teens. If you you don't care about walking to the beach this hotel is ok. Clean and comfortable. Pool is small. Hadn't been cleaned so there was sand and debris in the water. Good price during... More

I recently stayed at this location while on a business trip. The hotel is not right on the beach, but there is a sidewalk that takes you from the hotel parking lot to a side street and from there directly to the beach. In fact. The beach was about 300 steps from my hotel room door. Warning-there is no public... More

This is best place in the world to stay for the winter months. We love Alma and her wonderful staff. They have created a wonderful atmosphere of family sharing and caring that brings us back year after year. The pool area is fantastic and the breakfast room spotless and welcoming.

I have been staying for business, wife joined me for a week. Great staff, clean hotel. Peaceful with a great view from the 4th floor. Internet was only disappointment. Staff did what they could to help that but it wouldn't keep us from staying again.
