This hotel is very neglected and run down. It also suffered from its conversion from a private house to a hotel. For instance, our bathroom was tacked on to the room, and so had to be raised up about a foot to accommodate the piping and drains being run underneath the floor. The driveway up was pitted with huge potholes, the grounds unkempt, the steep stairway to the main entrance dangerous when struggling up them with luggage. The refrigerator in the room was filthy. The curtains were old, mildewed and could not be shut fully. The carpet was dirty and mildewed. The common areas smelled and were dirty. There was nothing such as bottled water, soaps, or any of the other little touches you come to expect in a hotel. The AC unit was off on arrival and off when we returned to the room after a long day at the beach, so you had to wait quite a while to get the room cool. The first night we had no hot water and the faucet handle for the shower was near to falling off. You have to cut through a larger hotel's grounds to get to the beach, and the larger hotel's staff tolerate but do not welcome this.
I have no idea how this hotel got such good ratings unless it was from many years ago or the ratings were inflated by the owner or staff. Several locals expressed their frustration that a hotel in such a prime location was being allowed to deteriorate and create a bad impression of Antigua for visiting tourists.
