This was by far my worst booking ever - and I thought I was pretty savvy in finding great finds for great deals and this one broke that record!
Let's start on a positive note with the PROS:
-great location: On the main beach, quick walk to town, grocery store and close to restaurants and scooter rentals
Now on the numerous CONS:
-Wifi is not free as the booking.com website listed. It costs $12USD/day or $36 USD/week. It's slow and only works close to the reception area - not at the beach bar or beach
-Breakfast WAS A JOKE. Don't fall for the 'breakfast included' deal. It was a plate with 1 slice of watermelon, 2 slices of papaya, a muffin that was harder than a hockey puck and a slice of unripened pineapple. It was almost insulting to be served such a sad dish of fruit scraps and stale muffin.
-the rooms were disgusting, yes a strong word, but I couldn't relax once in those rooms (and we only stayed 2 nights). The bedding was nasty, with only 1 polyester sheet to cover, and a old smelly bed cover that I didn't want to touch with a 10 foot pole. The kitchen (without any cutlery, plates, glasses, silverware etc) looked like something out of a deserted shack, rusty and all. The towels had hair on them and the shower didn't drain. Didn't bring soap or shampoo? Don't fret. You can walk 15 min to the grocery store to buy some, because this hotel doesn't provide you with anything but a small wrapped hand soap that had dirt under the wrapping.
-The food was way over priced and made an amateur level cook. Do not buy anything at this restaurant. We ordered salad, jerk chicken plate and salt fish fritters and the bill was $50USD! We found a cute little local place down the way called Cool Spot and we paid $10 for a full local breakfast for two. Needless to say, we didn't go back to the hotel bar.
-The beach looks nice, but beware - it is swarming with aunts and after 5pm the sand ticks come out to bite. This is a sign that there is no grooming that goes on. Although the water is beautiful and clear with no seaweed.
That sums up my experience. I recommend this hotel goes through a serious renovation inside the rooms - new beds, real bedding, new towels, paint job... the works. Only then would I would entertain the thought of staying again - on second thought, not even that would work.
