We just stayed at the Toucan Inn for a week on a B&B basis and it was perfectly adequate for our needs. The transfers and checking-in/out went smoothly and as the hotel is literally 2 minutes from the airport you can start your holiday as soon as possible after you're through customs. (Don't worry, the sound from the airport isn't a problem).
The rooms are basic but clean and functional. We had a corner garden room but they're all very similar. The pool rooms are closer to the pool and restaurant/bar but it's not a rowdy place by any means so I don't think they would be a problem in that respect.
The restaurant/bar (known as Bonkers) was nice and any food we had there was always nice and the staff were always pleasant. Food and drink (esp. water) can be bought cheaper elsewhere but that's probably true of most hotels.
Crown Point isn't a huge place but the hotel is the opposite side to Pigeon Point which is where most people's holiday's will centre. A short taxi ride or a 30/35 minute walk get's you there though.
Overall, I'd recommend the Toucan Inn if you're just looking for a clean, friendly base for your holiday. Say Hi to Mr.B if you go. He's the resident taxi/tour operator and he makes a mean rum punch! ;)
