Recent reviews pretty much explain this hotel. Bottom line: it's tired and needs refreshing. It probably was a very good place 20-30 years ago. But it hasn't been maintained and shows it everywhere, from landscaping to furniture to structure. The owners will either do nothing to improve it and just milk it until it falls apart, or they will invest a lot of capital to upgrade it.
One feature we valued was that the reservation was cancellable up until 3 days before arrival; most places are not nearly as generous.
The maids and staff do a pretty good job with what they have. The beds and linens are clean and decent. But things like the doors and furniture are way past their prime. The $15/day fee is outrageous for what you get, but an extra fee for parking or "resort fee" or something else is pretty common on the island so it may not be out of line.
This property has a lot of potential: its location on the beach and in the middle of the island are excellent. So time will tell what they decide to do. In the meantime, it's an OK and less expensive place to stay if you don't mind facilities that are less than perfect.
