The rooms look great from the outside as the views of the ocean are amazing and there are beautiful colourful flowers everywhere, however....... the rooms are extremely basic! My air conditioning wasn't working, and it took me telling the hotel reception 4 times before anyone came to fix it! The showers aren't very powerful at all and the bathroom felt very dirty. The lighting in the room was horrendous, just a couple of white light lamps so it was impossible to see yourself when getting ready in the evening!!!
The restaurant and bar staff are friendly enough, but they didn't seem too impressed when I sent my fried eggs back as they were undercooked.
There is a very small swimming pool, but its not big enough to swim in, just to take a dip in. There is a beach nearby (approx 10 minute walk) but its quite a hike on the way back as its up a steep hill! The road is also completely unlit at night so quite scary walking back in the dark! There are lots of stairs and uneven concrete linking reception to the rooms so no good for anyone with walking difficulties. The concrete stairs also get very slippery in the rain.
There are far better hotels in Antigua than this one! However, the cocktails in the bar are good!!!!
