Bugs, bugs and more bugs. While waiting for our room we stayed on the beach from noon until about 2:00pm. I must have gotten bitten at least 30 times out there. When we got to our room it was filthy and bug infested. My husband must have emptied the can of insect repellent so we could try and get some sleep before our travel day. We had to sleep in jeans and our shorts to protect ourselves from the bugs. The basket of travel size lotions and shampoos were almost all half used. Be warned that dogs are allowed and trust me I am adog person but they lift their leg an umbrellas and chairs and whatever they can. They are also allowed in the dining room and all of the hotel. I love quaint little Caribbean gems but this is not one of them.
