This is a 3*** Star hotel where staff treat you in a 4 Star manner. They were all so friendly and helpful and continously asked if everything was to our satisfaction. My partner and I had a truly relaxing stay at this very friendly hotel over Christmas and New Year. Prior to our stay we upgraded to a Junior suite, which was worth it. Superking bed and well laid out room with fridge, TV and aircon. However, not all rooms have aircon and fridge so check at time of booking.
The hotel is located in Rodney Bay in a Cul de Sac. It has the beach across the road (50 yds) which is accessed by walking through the Bay hotel gardens opposite which everyone is allowed to do. Sunbeds are available to hire on the beach.
There are various trips to go on but we would recommend the Catamarran for the day which takes in the Volcano, Gardens, Castries and lunch and swimming on the way back.
The food was nice and we definitely didn't starve! Buffet most of the time which was quite good especially breakfast. We paid for all inclusive (includes all drinks) and it was well worth it. The house wine for dinner didn't leave you with a hangover which was a relief!
The hotel was very clean albeit that it could do with a lick of paint here and there. The pool was nice especially the flowing water from the top part. Could do with more sunbeds, but they do get them for you and supply towels.
If you are looking for 5 Star this is not for you, but if you want a warm friendly place then it is. We are considering going back again at the end of the year for a month this time.
