Very dated, not maintained very well at all, the rooms look like they all need a good clean, and revamp. Would not stay again for the price, for what you get. The swimming pool is really small, and most of the time the water is very cloudy.

What time do the bars close on Friday the 6th July?
Hi there, I apologize for not getting back sooner, not getting notifications like I used to. I actually did not go to the Club Raro Bar the night I stayed there but I do know they do not serve cocktails with breakfast. Had to ask for a beer before leaving for flight to other island.
