The only good thing about this stay was ....it was only for 1 night !!!! The place needs condemning On arrival the checkin was a young lad listening to a iPhone and being honest His attitude was i don't really want to be here regardless of you having to stay Here . You could tell he'd had to endure complaints...

It was so bad that I had to leave after viewing the place. Guys the place is just a mess- pool was empty, toilet wasn't...

Westjet booked my husband and i into this resort due to a missed connecting flight. First impressions were horrible. The place is a ghost town. The lobby was dark, no one at the bar, an not a hotel guest not be seen. The hotel is empty. The room was outdated to put it nicely. The pool is literally falling apart,...

This hotel may have been grand when it was built about 35 years ago but is in gross disrepair now. There are 256 room but on 40 are booked and open. The rest of the rooms are "under repair." The website is grossly misleading as the paint is chipping on the entire build. Pool water looks clean but the bottom...

At the time of travel, the hotel was being renovated, slowly but surely I guess. I imagine that it was quite majestic in its day. The staff was friendly. The pool was dirty and there were ducks in there.Our room offered a majestic view of the ocean though.

Was apprehensive about selecting this hotel due to the noted poor ratings. Decided to stay there due to the near proximity to St. John's. So I went there with limited expectations. I was surprisingly pleased with my stay there. Very friendly staff especially Mr. Joseph at the front desk. Maybe I was just there at the right time but the...

I booked through Expedia for 2 weeks sunshine. The website said the hotel had 3 restaurants, 5 bars, casino, spa, gym, jacuzzi and pool. A casino and nightly entertainment. There was 1 bar, no poolside bar, a dirty pool, no casino, no entertainment, broken loungers and 1 restaurant that served inedible food from a menu that had 4 choices (1...

Stayed at this hotel for Christmas 2016. It was as many other people stated... completely deserted. Which wasn't the biggest problem. The pools were disgustingly dirty with trash and debris. It was a complete health hazard. There weren't any lounge chairs set up or available. The tennis court is in complete shambles. The playground rusted and dilapidated. The amenities listed...

I was quite disgusted that we were sold this holiday; the pictures on the website gave us the impression that this is an active vibrant hotel. There was a few people there it was like we were in a ghost town, most of the hotel is closed for renovation, there was an empty swimming pool, a pool with dirty water,...

I was returning to Dominica where I currently live, after spending Christmas & New Year in the UK. We arrived late in the afternoon, and needed to be at the airport early the next morning (4 am) to catch our flights. This booking was therefore to be a crash pad. When we arrived there was nobody available to assist with...
