Reviewed yesterday NEW

Girl at the reception was new. Took around half an hour to check in. She was polite and professional but definately not ready for the job. She was the only one working at peak check in time. We did not get the suite we had reserved, had to settle for one without a jaccuzi. Hotel is nice. Breakfast was great....

We were very pleased with the cleanliness of this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included each day which made the value of this hotel even better. The location was conveniently located near the Birding Centre and Sea Turtle Rescue. There was a pool and hot tub and it was a short walk to the beach.

The location is just a one block walk to the beach and Claytons beachside bar. The staff are always courteous and helpful. The Jacuzzi rooms have a great few of the bay. Rooms are large and kept very clean. Only downside is a bit outdated and have a small shower. Otherwise the place to stay on the island.

Two queen beds and a huge breakfast! Walking distance to the beach. Clean and well appointed with friendly staff. The beach was clean and not over crowded. We decided to stay an extra day! Sea turtle inc. is right across the street.

Holiday Inn Express is a budget friendly, yet clean and comfortable hotel. Upon arrival we were promptly greeted, our room was ready and it was handled professionally. Our room, a Jr.King Suite was clean and comfortable with a nice sitting area, table and chairs. The bathroom was large and clean.

I love this hotel, and the view from the balcony was just awesome. We sat for hours watching the sunrise, and listening to the band downstairs on the patio. The weather was perfect for our trip. Will return next year for sure.
