For $88 a night--with no additional fees or taxes--at a major tourist destination, what do you expect?
A fantastic deal--and the staff and live-in residents of the place were the nicest people we met on the island!
The showers are shared between two units each.
The window curtains are sewn to the curtain-rod so that they don't slide aside. I used clothespins to pin them up to get light into the otherwise dark room.
There were live insects and detritus in the sheets and pillows.
And the water pressure was so low (with almost zero hot water), it was very difficult to take a (cold) shower.
As far as I could tell, there were no other divers staying on the property. But they do have a locked dive locker on the premises, a pool you can use to try out your weighting, and the shared showers are big enough to carry all your gear in. The in-room "slop" sinks are also great for rinsing out your wetsuit. But with very little ventilation in the room, your gear will take days to dry unless you take it outside.
And again, everyone on the property was so dang friendly and helpful--very different than what we experienced at A Stone's Throw Away and Sheraton Cable Beach. Needless to say, we had quite a unique trip to the Bahamas, where in a handful of days, we got to stay at three totally different properties: an off-the-tourist-track B&B; a 4-star tourist resort; and Land Shark, which we dubbed "The Plywood Palace."
If you're looking to save a ton of money and you'd like to hang out at a laid-back outdoor (covered) bar while drinking and smoking with easy-going locals and ex-patriots, this might be your perfect spot.
