At first glance you would think no one else was in the hotel, considering it was the off season some of the resorts actually close until the season starts again in Oct at first we were the only ones on our floor but after a few days others had arrived, the hotels does need some good TLC but all in all hotel has plenty to offer, they do have wifi but it is not free they do have an area with free computer use a small gym room a pool on the way to the beach
Our room was fine the sliding doors did not quiet slide smoothly but maintenance was there directly and we got a room change and a lagoon view instead of your mountain view, staff was on point every morning at breakfast which was the perfect start to the day they were very friendly even when we bumped into them in town a quick smile and hello.
The beach was so nice no big waves was always calm and beach staff also very nice and friendly told us which parts to we could snorkel and to be care of the lion-fish which are rather new to the island which only swim at the rock edge, on a clear day you can see Montserrat we got a few pics of that we could also see the steam coming from the volcano
We even spoke with the manager a few times who was also so nice and extended a anything we can do to help just ask gesture which was nice of him, staff also book a few tours we were interested in and was always on hand if we needed anything
We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again we did pass by a few other hotels during our stay that were open and some came over a bit commercial not sure how many people want to play bingo while on vacation in Antigua
