I have been to this resort 5 times and stayed in4 different rooms. The location couldn't be any better. It has always been my favorite vacation spot every year, but the last 3 trips here has not been the same. The place has not been taken care of and maintained. They say new beds but that is not the case.... More

First, I want to say that Jim (onsite staff member) was very helpful and accommodating. We also met Rick and felt that he was doing a good job of overseeing the resort, and he was easy to work with during the reservation process. The exterior of the building and the pool/patio areas were nice. However, be advised that some of... More

During peak summer season, if want to be more secluded you may want to be on the north end of the Island, that I can agree. The Resort has couple thousand guest a year, most are very happy with the Resort, some are looking for a more of a Marriott style of place, therefore might be dissatisfied. A vast majority... More

Had a great stay. Very clean; staff very accommodating; being so close to the beach was a plus; Would only recommend upgrading the mattress, it being worn down and a bit uncomfortable, but definitely would not keep us from coming back. We look forward to our next visit.

The place is run down and dirty. I asked for the floors to be recleaned and grime removed from top microwave and kitchen ceiling. Management is responsive to requests but that is not a replacement for a run-down facility. The place needs to be renovated to justify the current rates.

We apologize if the top of microwave was missed, the facility is not brand new but it is also not run down, we have tumble marble decks, stainless steel outside grill, we have landscaping like no other place on the Island, we have new...

Wide open beach with room for everybody. Parking spaces are hard to find between 10 and 4. Very good food service... all three meals. Breakfast pancake special and "yummy" sandwich and waffles are great. Ladies at the service window are friendly, helpful and patient. Servers are prompt and friendly. good drink specials at the outdoor bar.

The place was basically the same as always but they have put the price of fish and chips up from $9.99 to $11.99 you get a much better fish and chip meal at Oshucks on Cortez. They have reclaimed the beach and now its twice as far to the water

We spent a week at this "resort" and we would never return to, nor recommend this property. When we travel, we don't need fancy amenities or lavish decor, but we do look for clean, well cared for accommodations. Not is place! The rugs in our unit #8 were so stained and dirty that we didn't fell comfortable walking barefoot. The... More
