Good, Reasonable Food If You're Willing To Be Patient

The view is lovely, and I've never stayed in the hotel or seen the rooms so I can't judge that. Let's talk about the food--the service is very slow and I have no idea why but it has always been. The food, on the other hand, has gotten much better and if you're on a budget and patient it will... read more

The place is ok, with a small, but nice terras at the waterfront. The food, however, wasn't good. Too much fried stuff, a noisy and social skills lacking lady waitress. Hardly any choice in wine, although there were several on the menu. Expensive, like everything on the island.

The ocean front rooms are worth the extra cost! While the rooms are on the budget side, the ocean being right there, with AC if you want it, is perfect! Added bonus of a filling breakfast included in the room rate. We went to eat breakfast when they started the buffet and had lovely choices each time. Eating breakfast on... More

The food was acceptable, but the service was horrendous. The surliest waitress I have ever encountered. 2 plates were brought out after a LONG wait, but our third party didn't get his until the rest of us were almost done with our dinner. And to top it all off, they included a mandatory 15% tip! Worst service EVER!

Food is slow, the evening staff is rude and clearly does not care to even be there...but it is the quality of the food that makes this place bad. I was told by several people that they used to be very good, but they got rid of a real staff...and now you get over cooked, tasteless food, or bad food.

Seating right on the water. I ordered a burger and fries for lunch but the fries didn't come and when I reminded the server, she came back to tell me the frier was turned off. That was disappointing. They stop serving lunch at 2 and reopen later for dinner. The burger was good and my friends loved their salads.

For lunch their place was ok, because of the view, but the rooms are not very good value. I thought I had booking here and when I arrived, they gave me a key of someone elses room... hmmmm...

Without lots of attention from the server, we still had a great meal with very tasty food on the waterfront. A storm blew in while we were eating, so we moved our plates to the inner bar area to escape being soaked. Unfriendly wait staff, but great food.

One of the cheaper palces to stay but the rooms are basic and need a fresh up. If you order food in the resto count at a waiting time of at least one hour before you get served. Staff is lazy and unfriendly. If you don't walk over to the counter to order there's a chance you can wait forever.
