I would only recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. First off when we made a reservation many months in advance they required a 50% deposit. OK, but on the day of check-in they charged the remaining 50% to our card rather than at check-out as almost every hotel I have stayed at in the past and no additional charges could be added to your room to include drinks around the pool.
The pool was loud with an even louder DJ and certainly not a place for a family. I know that this is a party island but we were assured that this was a family resort -- Wrong. And there was no restriction that pool guests had to be hotel guests. Drop your credit card at the bar, drink and enjoy the loud DJ. People who were drunk at 3 and 4 in the morning would go up and down halls banging on doors. Security guards were on duty from somewhere around 6PM until I don't know when.
One person in our party had the tail light of his car completely broken. Fortunately it was viewed from the window by another guest and since the security guards had words with a drunk unruly guest in the parking lot the late night before, they were able to track down the culprit and get him to admit to and pay for the damage.
Then there was the evening when 5 or 6 of us were talking in the lobby - all very sober, but perhaps a little loud - were asked by security to leave because the desk staff were unable to hear the phones. This was at 11:30PM. Actually we would have been out around the pool talking except that a near-by sewage plant caused a foul odor due to the wind direction.
One couple in the group (with their two children) had not had their room made up and when they called to complain at 6PM after a day out and about, they were told "Too bad, housekeeping had left" -- Remember we were paying $250.00 per night.
Our room was comparable to a one or two star Days Inn or similar hotel that one might pay 89.00 to 119.00 per night. Unless you are in your late twenties longing for a night out with folks who seemed like college fraternity boys, I strongly suggest you find different accommodations.
