From the airport it was roughly 90 minutes. The hotel on first impression's was clean and tidy. The reception staff were polite and courteous and always replied sir or madam with a smile.
The rooms were functional and simple and housekeeping was done on a daily basis to a high standard. There is a swimming pool by the bar, one 5' and smaller 2' in depth. The pool bar was okay for a quick drink if you were going out on a night to try different locsl food. The staff at the bar were "sweet and sour" at times they would be on their mobile phones and providing service was a chore to them.
The hotel food had its own menu showing local delicacies and was charged at ECD 55 - 60
There is a tour desk and certified taxi rank at the hotel and all vehicles were clean and well maintained.
If you wished, you could use the beach facilities at the Bay Gardens resort further down Gros Islet. Bay gardens hotel provided a free transfer to the resort on the half hour every hour from 09.30 to 18.30 except at 17.30 when it was needed for staff transfers.
Around the corner facilities were in abundance. A large shopping center for by the car park, Chemist, KFC, Burger King, Churches Chicken,Post office, Barber and hairdresser on the second floor.
There is a large air conditioned mall with lots to offer.
In short we were on a budget holiday. The hotel suitef our needs and would return. Hope this helps =-)
