We stayed here for 5 days in August and were really excited about it having read so many brilliant reviews on here. Sadly we felt that the resort did not live up to expectations. On arrival ( after a very rough crossing, travel sickness pills would be recommended, especially when it's raining) we were met by the female American manageress who told us that it wasn't very rough and some people are more prone to sea sickness than others (out of about 45-50 people on the boat only 7 were not sick)this made us both feel very small. We were then shown to our room, which was situated on the most beautiful beach. The room itself was fine and had an outside bathroom. Sadly this bathroom did have rodents, this can be expected in an outside bathroom however, when we found rodent mess on and around the basin we asked for our bathroom to be cleaned again to get rid of this. It only got resolved on the third time of cleaning, when the manageress over saw the cleaning, this had the added bonus of our basins being cleaned for the first time during our stay (don't leave the soap out the rodents will eat it). The attitude of the staff was variable, some were friendly and happy to help however some seemed completely disinterested. We went during the rainy season so we were expecting some rain, however the hotel has no undercover communal area for people when it was raining so you are stuck in your room where the wifi does not reach to. The hotel does however provide a selection of DVDs which is useful. Overall the location of the hotel was good, but the attitude of staff and the cleanliness left a lot to be desired.
