So, I was on a tour and would never have chosen to stay here, but since I did I wanted to share a few things:
The good: 1. The woman who serves breakfast and works in the restaurant is very nice and helpful 2. The wifi signal is strong 3. The location is good and within walking distance to the ferry 4. The AC is strong. 5 the restaurant, Jerk, is where the locals eat. Eat there b it's authentic and good. It's on the Main Street in front of the water, not connected to the hotel.
The bad: The rooms leave a lot to be desired. They literally reminded me of a bed and breakfast I stayed at in India, except India was better. They're a bit grimey, the water pressure is horrible and if you get hot water you're lucky. The safes don't work at all if you even have one on your room. The lighting is mellow yellow so it only highlights the dinginess. 2 whoever manages this place doesn't really seem to care. A paint job and some elbow grease would go a long way. 3. There was no pillowcases on the bed, jut the bed spread case which I'm pretty sure was never washed. I slept laying on a towel. 4 there's no blanket - just a bed spread who his not a blanket. 5 these some thick plastic something or other under the thin sheet. No idea why but the mattress was awful, and none of us slept well. 6 breakfast is a crapshoot. Some days there's bread and others maybe not. When I was there they had 2 eggs and there where over 10 of us. No one that worked there made any move to go into town to get breakfast. They knew we would be there and is included in the room bit they only serve what they literally have. 7 bring your own beach towels bc they're not providing any sort of towels outside of what's in your room
This place is tired and not well run. A few people people who try but do not have the means to help though they try. If someone invested some money and upgraded it could be a beautiful place. Right now I can only recommend if someone is on a very tight budget and wants to save money.
