We have spent many years at this resort and finally decided that we had to move on to better options. This place is in need of a major overhaul. Although the area is quiet, the pool is maintained adequately and the location is good, the furniture is in need of replacing. The boat docks have not been maintained and have been over grown by mangrove shoots. Barbecues are not clean.The carpets and tiling in the bath areas are not well maintained. In fact they appear dirty. The sofa and chairs in the living room are uncomfortable. The sleep number bed is lumpy and not worth sleeping on. We had sore backs all week.The kitchen is out of date for the 21st century Cabinets are very 1980's era and need replacing. There was a lack of oversight to the inventory control. Many items were missing or just not there.. Coffee maker etc. is out of date and was not clean upon arrival. Garbarator did not work. Also the balcony was not cleaned and the previous guest had left sea shells and sand all over the place. It was cleaned after we mentioned it. There were no plastic cups for the pool area and we had to ask for those. This too was looked after. So the staff try to accommodate the guests but there really has to be work done to the premises to make it attractive and up to date. Although this requires a considerable investment, if this resort hopes to attract guests it must really improve the accommodations to suit those wanting a comfortable and clean place to vacation. Hopefully the directors of this facility will use the funds from maintenance fees to address the many issues involved.
