This resort is one of the lower priced of its kind in the town of Lamai. It's nearly walkable to town, but far enough way to enjoy piece and quiet. The resort itself is long and narrow, with a small stretch of beach along the ocean. The resort offers a restaurant and a pool along the beach. Rooms are of 3 or 4 different categories. Budget rooms are in a hotel like building (where I stayed), duplex units are between the beach and the budget rooms, and the oceanfront rooms that are newly constructed which offer an ocean view and are poolside. The budget room I stayed in did have a dated bathroom. And as one reviewer noted, a water pump can be heard and birds are often chirping. I had the end room, room 111, and probably could hear these things the most. Like the other review, my room was immediately near the staff quarters. That said, the water pump can mostly be heard in the bathroom. It's slightly audible from the bedroom, but it didn't bother me nor do I think it will bother most people. The staff were quiet, the noise from their area was nil. The birds mentioned were chirping throughout the night...that said it was no different than the other 2 hotels on the island. Neighboring noise was not a problem either, I didn't think the walls were that thin and the adjoining room was occupied.
The staff is great. The restaurant is very reasonably priced considering it's owned by the hotel. I only had breakfast and it was very good. As others have noted, John (the manager) is fantastic. He's from England, so communication is not a problem. He's the reason this resort gets a perfect score from me. Regardless of what I needed (even if it was a service he didn't provide, like laundry), he helped.
If you're looking for a budget resort this place is great. Keep your expectations in line though, this is not ultra-luxery.
