There are a lot of nice things to say about this hotel:
good food at very good prices,
and a great bartender.
We rented the Lime Villa - a large one bedroom villa. The furniture in the living room was moldy and dirty, luckily, one of the wonderful staff members, Deane, scrubbed the furniture and floors with bleach - which helped a great deal. The bathrooms were tiny and needed updating, as did the rest of the villa - we never felt quite clean there. I hear the rooms across the road are great - they are brand new.
The reason why we won't stay here again has more to do with the property - the beach. They have gated their beach so that there is only a tiny strip of sand, the rest of the sand is inside the gate. If you are a beach person, such as we are, we like to be on the beach all day. Because there is only a strip of sand with no trees, you are basically in the hot sun all day, they do not have beach umbrellas or cabanas, or huts that are built on the beach to create shade, therefore, we only could spend very little time on the beach before there was no shade and we were baking. Other guests sat at the bar area, but it's not the same. Other hotels offer shaded areas so that you can stay out on the beach all day. Because we go to Jamaica for the 7 mile beach, we would not stay here again.
Again, the staff was great - they were kind and welcoming. The price was right but the old saying..you get what you pay for..very true.
