“my stay at this hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We were there on vacation from jamaica. our stay was a pleasant one , both front desk staff, erstaurant staff were quiet friendly . however during our stay which was 10 nights the trainee housekeeper gave a bad impression on there house keeping skills as the mirror bath and cleaning of our room was poorly or never done there were 3 of us total included are my husband and daughter. The beach was just across the road .this hotel does not offer FREE shuttlle service we were charged 60 dollars total round trip by the driver of the shuttle service they referred us to that was &30 each way from ftl .hollywood intl airport. Having astove and a nice fridge was aplus as jamaicans rather having home cook meals.internet access was ok bed quiet comfortable .especially when the room was tidy by the assigned housekeeper.

Room Tip: The location of my room was ok aircondition perfect,no noise

Just got back from staying at this hotel and I was very impressed with how clean the rooms were. It was exactly what we were looking for. It's perfect if you just want to be out and about all day and have a Place to stay at night. Beds were comfy and everyone that worked there were very helpful!!

The rooms were like pig sties! There is no HBO! The breakfast is a joke! The people who run it barely speak English! The appliances didn't work! Had to ask for clean sheets and towels! Tiki bar drinkers from all over take parking places when you come back to your room in the evening! Over all it probably the worst place I have ever stayed!

We stayed there in March and would definately stay there again. The Tiki Bar is really good with very reasonable priced drinks. Room was clean and comfortable. In a great position. Henry the night Manager was very helpful but the actual manager (cant remember his name - he is french) should not be in the hospitality industry - he is unhelpful and abrupt bordering on rude. Only complaint is the plastic sheet on the mattress - every time you move it makes a noise but other than that had a wonderful stay and will be back. Elizabeth.

If I could rate 0's I would...stray cats wondering all around. At one point a cat meowed so loud that I opened the door and it ran in our room so after chasing this cat around the room I was finally able to get the cat out.

A huge rat ran across the bar area floor as I was first walking to my room.

I was forced to use my sandy beach towel one night because we could not get a real clean towel from the employees after asking multiple times.

There is a bar 5 feet from my door on the first floor which is very loud and does not close until 2am

After having dinner we came upon the hotel to find 3 police cars in the front. When trying the find out what had happened the owner rudely told everyone to stop talking about it. I believe that if I am staying in a resort I have the right to know why police are at the hotel. I ended up being a drunk guy hitting another drunk guy over the head with a wrench.

The included breakfast was white and wheat bread with butter, mini bagels, cold waffles with no syrup. ONE little glass of orange juice. The Ukrainians eagle eye watch the whole time we ate out bread...the hot bar which included bacon, sliced potatoes and sausage was $6.99 extra.

I felt extremely uncomfortable staying here and would wish no one the horrible experience that I have had here

Nothing is what their website says. Only breakfast you get free is white bread, you have to pay extra for bacon and the whole time you are eating they watch you with eagle eyes. Owner is not helpful and is rude. Will only give one towel per person. The room was only half cleaned once in five days. Prices are hidden. Seems cheap unless you want to take a shower or eat. Owners never smile or say thank you. Only good part was the girl bartenders. They were nice. They were American. Internet is awful and rooms were nasty. I will not ever stay with these gypsies ever again. All they want is money.
