Beach was nice (especially if you went away from the hotel to find a private spot which was possible in low season in Feb 2017) and pool was a good addition. The room was ample size with a kitchenette, comfy bed and air conditioning. Sadly the showers were cold (you are in the middle of nowhere I guess) and the...

It is called a Resort but certainly it's not...Is just a very old Hotel that opened 25 years ago or more as a Time Share destination. We went back after a lot of years and it is sad to see it like that... :-( The pool is still nice but shallow and they closed the kids pool which makes it...

Since we arrived to check in we had the worst welcome ever, they didn't have wifi or internet so they couldn't check our reservation. The girl at the front desk did not explain anything about the hotel at all; but just gave us a red bracelet and pointed to the room. We were expecting to have wifi, since it said...

The grounds of this hotel are beautiful, and it is on the bus route, so very easy to get to and from. We were initially given a very basic room, with no fridge or working air. But when we spoke to reception, they immediately moved us into a much nicer room at no extra charge. The food is very good,...

To be fair, I had just come from a different spectacular resort and was just at this place for 2 nights before flying out of the country, so it would have been pretty hard to impress me. I think this place is used mostly by locals with kids...? Not sure, but it felt like people would come for extended stays...

If only we had read the last review. Their website is dishonest in the extreme. The resort has 200 rooms and 3 have been renovated. These are the ones shown in the photos. This 25 year old resort is in desperate need of a major renovation. It is not even plumbed for hot water and when we questioned why this...

Hotel is nice. The hotel has a lot to offer, good food, pool, beach (big waves so no swimming), pool bar, pool tables, ping pong, play ground, disco, and a spa. We enjoyed our stay there. Locals stay there on the weekends (in high season) so it can get crowded and noisy.

This place is just terrible. It is far from what one could expect from a 110 dollars a night resort in the Carribian... The location is very nice but the rooms are terrible (old, dirty, horrible bathrooms etc). The swimming pool looks ok but when you see the amount of people inside you ask yourself what you get from it....

This is not a hotel, it is a condominium of serviced apartments with common recreational facility like swimming pool, beach, bar etc. The facility looks to be built in the late '70s it is well overdue for a major refurb. There is no hot water because they have registered as an 'Ecolodge' but there is still air conditioning... In the...
