We stayed back in April May 2013. I remember this hotel as being the oldest we've stayed at. The rooms were not fancy at all but A/C worked good showers. When you are on an island this beautiful what do you need your room for? The beds were pretty uncomfortable. This is due to age and supplies. The food staff... More

This resort is not worth spending time on. The resort looks like something that has been closed for a long time, and just reopened. Reception: Checkin took forever only one person to do the job - 1,5 hour wasted there. Refused to give us more toiletpaper when needed, but accepted only after I raised my voice. Bathroom: Shower had only... More

We went with a bunch of students(300) which was great for that but would not be good for a family or couple vacation. My first room didn't have a phone, didn't have a working toilet, or a working safe. When I finally switched rooms everything was perfect except we had no AC and we went at the beginning of July...
