First, the good points- the head chef in the day, Kerry-Ann, is a lovely lady. Her food was delicious. The lady at the front desk, Julissa, was just really nice to talk to and very professional. What was not professional though was the behaviour of the night manager at the restaurant. I can't describe her as anything but a hooligan... More

This hotel is situated on a cliff that provides a beautiful view out onto the water. The view from the balcony of the room was very nice and the sunset each evening was spectacular. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. There was not a huge choice in the buffet but the food was tasty and... More

I stayed there from April 22-26. Everything was going fine til the last day. I made a security deposit the day of arrival (and so did the 5 other people who came with me) and on the 26th when we left, everyone besides me got their money back. I called about 10 days after leaving and they told me they... More

Location is fantastic, the staff is very friendly, but it does need lots of updates to really bring it together. The rooms were clean but could use a mini-fridge. Free wifi was nice as some of the other hotels charge for it. We just wish there were more food options to choose from. Not that the food was bad, just... More
