Amazing restaurant (Caribbean Fish Market-get the tuna)
Join the "beach party" on Sundays at 11am or Mondays at 5pm for free drinks, appetizers and the low-down on different day trips.
The internet (wifi) was down about 50% of the week we were down there (available only from the lobby which is currently be renovated) and we had to continually tell them it was down. Apparently many patrons were making them aware of this as they were continually frustrated with the requests to restart it.
The hot tub was "luke warm" about every other night while we were there. After informing them the following night would always be the right temp (with some very high chlorine levels on 2 of the evenings…burning your eyes high) but then the temp would fall back down to luke warm the next night.
One of the staff members working the front desk (lady in her 50-60's) isn't very pleasant. She seemed annoyed with any question you asked upon arrival. The rest of the staff was pleasant and easy to talk to.
If you don't plan to stay the entire week be sure to tell them upon check out b/c they only charge the $22 fee/night that you stay
Taxis pick you up by the lobby. Roughly $5-6 PER PERSON each way for anything in the Red Hook area. This applies even if there are other patrons in the vehicle going to different places (odd, I know). Expect $16 cab ride to/from the airport/per person (including your luggage) if you're sharing a cab. If you're going on your own without other people it will be $20/person. They only accept cash.
Request a room on the lower level close to the lobby (unless you really crave beach views from your room and don't mind hauling your luggage up more stairs) 1 week before arrival. Closer to the lobby means closer to everything (wifi, taxis, beach, pool/hot tub, 2 restaurants (Sangrias and Caribbean Fish Market).
Try talking your cab driver into stopping at the grocery store on your way from the airport. You'll save $12 minimum (per person) if you can shop quickly (5 minutes or less is free and a $1/minute thereafter)
