“Nice family hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The hotel is renamed: "van Heeckeren".
It is a nice hotel; fully equipped rooms. Enormous (Smart) TV screen in the room. Very nice breakfast. No lunch or dinner services, which is no problem at all. Many restaurants in the area.
Bathroom is small but convenient (shower and bath).

Room Tip: We had room 24 on the ground floor; a little bit small, but convenient.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

A restyled small room with a worn out bathroom. That is the first thing we noticed after being welcomed by the friendly staff of the now called van heeckeren hotel. After a great day at the island we returned late at night to a noisy hotel with walls that seem to be made of paper, something that considering the enormous size of the tv in the room does quite fast take the relaxed island zen away. Breakfast is pretty good, but the room is is served in is so crammed with tables and chairs that you have to divide your attention between your plate and fellow guests trying to pass your table on a 50-50 basis. All in all i would not recommend this place, but maybe the name change as of feb 1 2012 is the first of many good things to come. The island is splendid though!

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs so you'll be the one on top

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2007

Centrally located, clean and pleasant hotel. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Only really bad thing was the soundproofing! I would have given a rate of five bullets if we weren't disturbed by a parade of elephants above us. Believe me, these guests were probably just doing their normal thing, just like us, but the floors are probably made of driftwood! And also, children seem to HAVE to run, jump, scream, yell, cry and stamp their feet ALL THE TIME!!!!! Very, very annoying.....

  • Liked — Beds, cleanliness
  • Disliked — noise from other guests
