The service here is excellent! The rooms are cozy, the air conditioning is relatively quiet, and everyone is very friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast which offers everything from cafe lattes to eggs, bacon and croissants. The evening Happy Hour provides generous pours of wine and a very nice selection of cheeses. I would highly recommend and will... More

The friendly staff, free breakfast and location-----tops. The wine and cheese tasting every afternoon was terrific! You will be right across the street from the beach too! So relaxing! Don't forget to rent electric bikes to tour the mountainous island yoursel. Great ride with that extra help up the mountains!

This hotel was the best. The personnel were all extremely friendly and helpful and that includes the people that cleaned our room. Our favorite was the afternoon wine and munchies. One was able to sit right up front outside by where all the travellers would walk by. Or, if you preferred there were places to sit in the wine room..... More

We stayed in a king room on ground level at end. The food was great. We dropped our bags on way from boat to zip line, and hotel staff put bags in our room and texted us when room was ready. The location is on the main strip, which made coming in and out during the day convenient. Hotel staff... More

This time my daughters and I brought my grandchildren to experience this lovely island. The free breakfast was great with more options this time. Wine and cheese reception and the nightly outdoor fire pit are wonderful opportunities to meet other guests. The room was wonderful with all the amenities anyone would want: refrigerator, coffee maker, security box, lotions, shampoos, a... More

We had two ground floor rooms across from each other. Ground floor rooms have shade at front door most of the day - upstairs rooms not the case. The tour packages are interesting and fun - most enjoyable for us was the parasailing (extra charge but worth it), zipline and rigid boat.

Breakfast was avarege at most, coffee, tea, juice, fruit, meat, not so good pastries and bread. Not enough... More

Fabulous breakfast, steps from the beach, and wine and cheese in the afternoon----What could be better. Oh and the beds are super comfortable. The hotel meets each arriving boat and takes luggage to the hotel where it is stored until your room is ready. Then will take luggage to the boat when it is time to leave.

We stayed for a Sunday and Monday night. Our family booked 3 rooms to celebrate a 75th birthday. Our room was quaint, clean and inviting. We really enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese hour (4:30-5:30 pm) as well as the breakfast on Monday. Both were above what I expected. The staff was very helpful and professional.
