Don't pay attention to the other reviews. This hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Yes it could use some updating, they have turn keys, and the breakfast is next door but for the price it is a very nice hotel. They have a waterpark if you have little kids and a big hot tub. Also there...

We were informed that they were booked and offered to contact other hotels for us. I have never had a hotel offer that before. The young front desk non american...

The walls were paper thin so you could hear everything. If you are interested in tv they provide a 19 in oldie. There were no extra outlets for...

We stayed here one night prior to visiting the island for the week. The room was basic, but clean. We arrived early and we were able to get an early check-in. The kids liked the 3 water parks that were available to guests. Breakfast was in the hotel next door- the waffle maker was a hit with the kids. Definitely...

We just stayed at this hotel last week. At first it seemed nice and affordable, and the view is very pleasing. The shared waterparks was nice, giving us more variety and adventure during our stay. However, the room was less then desirable. The bathroom door was swelled and damaged on the bottom preventing it from being shut properly. This wasn't...
