I have just come home from this hotel - having stayed their many times before during its former grandeur. It has now owned by the BVI government and has fallen into complete disrepair. Local people describe it as derelict. It was clean enough but no plugs in the kitchen sink so you cannot wash up, very few working lights in the villa so the place was very dimly lit, sockets hanging out of the walls on wires (death traps), footpaths poorly lit, no hot water for the entire week we were there and this was a top of the range 2 bed villa which was not cheap. A minimal amount of water dripped from the shower. The kitchen was appallingly equipped. The patio was a deathtrap with concrete slaps sticking up out of the floor, no outside lighting and no chairs or sunloungers. The pool had one broken sunlounger and the sea pool was derelict with pipes sticking up, broken glass, the relics of what were once sunshades and, again, one broken sunlounger. The hammocks hanging in the grounds are broken, the grass needs mowing and the whole complex is like a ghost town. Even the beach bar is derelict. The only decent part is the view across the Sir Francis Drake channel and the reception area where there is free internet. The dolphin attraction, which is a concession, is at the far end of the complex. The hotel staff are friendly enough and the location is excellent for access to town but the accommodation is depressing and far below standard. I was shocked to see how much it had deteriorated since last time I was there. The villa we had was noisy on certain nights of the week when there is an event taking place at the onsite restaurant - one night the music went on until 4am. Whatever you do, do not stay here under any circumstances. It is really dismal and poor value for money. This hotel was closed down for a long time and should never have reopened until it was properly renovated and functioning. I would never go back here. There are far better hotels on the island with good facilities and amenities..Do not stay here.
