This hotel is definately in a beautiful location and the grounds are lovely...but that is where it ALL ends! Our week long holiday started with a 30 min lecture on what we could and couldn´t do at the hotel. At first we thought Scott (one of the owners) was joining us for a cocktail but that was not the case...he might as well been selling us timeshare in his hotel. The cabin they gave us was next to the restaurant so was blocked from any sea breeze and extremely HOT! We asked to move to another cabin which they did accomadate after 3 days. We had alot of insects in our room do to no screens on the windows, only chicken wire for security. Once we had a HUGE spider the size of your outstretched hand!
Another morning he yelled at us to whisper ¨because people pay alot of money to stay here!¨...never mind that we were paying for one of there most expensive, larger rooms! And we were even talking to another one of his guests.
Everything in the bar and restaurant is VERY expensive. We ate there for dinner the first night and breakfast the first morning...but never did again. You can eat anywhere on the island for half of what he is charging. Don´t have the coffee that he sets out in the morning...he makes you feel that it is complementary but charges you for it in the end.
Everything seemed to make them feel as if they had to go out of there way for you. Chips and salsa before dinner? How hard is that? Their salsa is from a jar and they charge $6 for it anyway. The guys went fishing and wanted to have their fish cooked for dinner but that was an inconvinience too, so we went down the beach to Carlitos Place.
The other half of our group could´nt stand it any longer and left for big corn island 2 days early. STAY anywhere but here!!
