The room didn't have hot water and it was next to a construction. We couldn't sleep with all the noise the workers was making. We complained with the hotel staff and they do nothing about it. I do not recommend this hotel.

I had great expectations for this hotel, since it sits right on the beach, and it has UVVA, one of my favorite restaurants. The staff needs to be better trained. First, upon arrival we were not told that they had showers inside to wash off the sand. So I showered in my room, and the shower was clogged. Then the...

This small hotel is situated in a calm area where there are mostly private houses. The area is gated and some of the gates close in the evening, but access through the main gate (which was always open) was easy. The hotel is very close to many and good restaurants and cafes. Our hotel room was very nice, it had...

The hotel is literally right on the beach which means you get to have your morning coffee with your feet in the sand and the warm Caribbean wind blowing in your hair!

This small hotel is right on the deep sandy Atlantic Ocean beach in an otherwise residential area, so it's quite safe. It's also on the end of the beach, so there's relatively more privacy than might otherwise be the case. It's only a 15 or 20 minute ride from the airport, but the planes take off in the other direction...

I normally don't leave reviews for anything but this place is just terrible.To begging with, the place is in a very nice spot and this is why decided to stay there, although we should have payed attention to the reviews. Service is terrible apart from few girls at the bar, the rooms are so old and need massive upgrade, the...

Sits right at the beach. Watch the kite surfers and have a nice meal. A nice menu, great service and reasonable prices for the location! And they get extra points because later that afternoon I went to pay for coffee at another location and had left my credit card behind. A call to the restaurant confirmed they had it and...

On the positive side it was very clean, the staff was pleasant and accommodating. It was on the beach and the view from the deck/restaurant was beautiful. First reason I was disappointed is the listing mad it look like there would be a view from the room, instead the room had NO windows. Then at check in you are forced...

Dear Ms. McCord, Thank you for your frank and direct feedback. We appreciate that You are highlighting certain issues, we are in the process of correcting. The listing on the website does not amplify the fact, that the room You had occupied does not have much of a view. Our premium rooms have beautiful views however that is reflected in...

Beautiful view, relaxing atmosphere and great food! We almost didn't come because of a bad review but our service was great and we loved the place! They have really good appetizers, burgers and entrees. The prices were good and even better that at nearby places.
