We loved Margarita. There were some cynical reviews on here of both the hotel and the island, and in all honestly it nearly stopped us from going...but we enjoyed it so much.
The hotel is fairly basic, for example you do not get tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms, and the furnishings are fairly basic, but the rooms are clean, and are cleaned thoroughly every day, in fact i saw them lifting the beds up and even cleaning under there every day. We could not fault the cleanliness.
We had a pool view room, and it is true what other reviews have said, that these are probably the best rooms to have, and I think someone said they had been recently refurbished.
The food was good, and we didn't get ill. They always had a lot of choice and we never struggled to find something we liked. They had a chef there who was cooking fresh meats every night, and pasta/spaghetti some lunch times, and omelettes in the morning. It was lovely. The only complaint was that the food was not piping hot as we like it in England.
The hotel is directly on the beach which is beautiful, the water did have a currently but was good for paddling in. There is a bar on the beach for Flamboyant hotel guests with sunloungers for guests. The pool and the beach do get busy, but not usually until after 9am. There are people trying to sell you things on the beach, but as soon as you say 'No thanks' they just walk on. We didn't get pressurised at all.
In all, we had a great holiday here. For the price you pay to go here I cannot see why people are complaining. If you want luxury, pay the price!!! If you are happy with a 3* hotel then this will suit you fine. There are some good beach bars around the area, and it makes a great and authentic Caribbean experience.
