Found the front desk to be very accommodating and helpful. We had two adjoining oceanview rooms as requested (on the fourth floor). It was very enjoyable to watch the cruise ships coming in in the morning. We stayed for one night while we were exploring the east side of the island. We didn't eat there as we arrived late and left early. The hotel has great views out the ocean side and has so much architectural potential. The rooms were clean but were very outdated. Fridges worked but I've never seen such old ones. A major renovation could make it a spectacular property however we found it very acceptable for our purposes. I wouldn't have wanted to stay here for any length of time. When we were checking in, airline crew were checking in as well and I always find that to be a good indication that the property is going to be okay. We paid just over $100/night between Christmas and New Year's.
