We stayed here in November and had a very good room on the garden side, the bed was huge and there was plenty of space and as we were on the ground floor, also a sitting out area. Tea and coffee in the room and also a fridge. It is a great place to stay if you prefer a small friendly hotel rather than a 'resort' hotel with all the trimmings. This also means the guests include plenty of locals and business people - quite enlightening to hear people discussing business plans while relaxing by the pool! A special mention must go to all the hotel staff as every one of them are an excellent ambassador for this hotel - giving a 5 star service, with great warmth and friendliness.
We were staying all inclusive and the downside of this was that the menu was the same every day - the food was also rather inconsistent - the same dish one day could be divine and on another day completely different and not so well cooked. There was an emphasis on local dishes though which was nice. I believe the all inclusive option has not been operating for long so possibly teething problems here. All the meals are served in a delightful open air restaurant overlooking the pool and it is hard to believe that only just outside the hotel is the vibrant 'strip' area of Rodney Bay, full of bars and restaurants. the beach and shops also are only a short walk and if you want to take a local bus or a taxi then are only a few minutes away.
I would definately recommend this hotel for those who prefer small and friendly, but go for B&B if you want to sample the numerous eateries around the area.
