On arrival we were a little disappointed because we had contacted the hotel to ask for a room which was not on the ground floor. We were told that although they tried to meet requests unfortunately it wasn't possible on this occasion. We accepted this and admit that the view from our room was beautiful, only a few steps from the beach and we liked the sound of the sea on the rocks. However we then learned that our patio door which led to the beach did not lock from the outside. A member of staff quickly came but the lock was clearly broken, it did lock from the inside but this was inconvenient as we couldn't just walk out to the beach as was the point of these rooms. The lock was not fixed during our stay and I doubt it has been since. The hotel was also very quiet so I do think we could have been given a different room but staff just chose not to. Our one bedroom suite was spacious and cleaned well but the bathroom was awful and really needs updating.
However, the location of this hotel did much to ease our initial disappointment. The beach is stunning and was really quiet throughout our stay with plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. It is also within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. The boardwalk was also pleasant for a stroll and also has a number of restaurants. We also walked into St Lawrence Gap on an evening which was enjoyable too. The supermarket and the ATM were within easy walking distance.
Reggie the concierge was excellent, he really is an asset to the hotel. We told him exactly what we wanted to do and his recommendations were excellent. He also made a point of being around the hotel speaking to the guests. I would recommend the Silver Moon catamaran trip.
The restaurant at the hotel has a great location but as others have said it needs something to encourage guests to eat there. We had lunch there and it was delicious but we never saw anyone there in the evening which is a pity.
Sunsets on the pool deck were lovely and it was nice to sit and have a drink there in the evening.
Overall, we would not let our experience with the room put us off this hotel and I would recommend it to others.
