The hotel is well maintained (clean but outdated) and the food choices and quality is excellent... The staff however, is not all friendly and they are not outgoing or eager to please the guest. Some of the front desk staff and gift shop staff (Marjo) were excellent and very helpful. The pool is well kept, the beach is nice to sit at, however, there is a lot of seaweed and the water sports (kayak, snorkeling, etc.) a bit tough as the currents are present.
One thing we found out the hard way is that the hotel runs on it's power source. On our last morning, the power went out and it was hours before it was restored. Sadly, I don't know when it was restored as we left at 6 am for the airport... I woke up at 2 am when it went out so I know it was out for at least 4 hrs. Not having power affected the water supply and the hotel had no emergency lights and or options to illuminate hallways, rooms, etc. creating a dangerous setting and unpleasant environment trying to get ready for a flight. I asked for a flashlight and it was not working properly. This was a bit of a concern for me as there was not a plan from the hotel. I doubt we will be back to this property but for an all inclusive experience, you almost have no choice if you want to be in St. Croix.
