My wife, my adult son and myself stayed here for 7 days. The check-in was speedy and we got an upgrade to our room. The room was spacious and very well apointed. This hotel may be older than some on the island but it has been well maintained. The staff maintains a cleanliness standard in the common areas that is to be admired. The pool is nice, the beach is nice, there is snorkeling with steps that lead into the water. They have an onsite dive operation although we used Dive with Martin ( a 5 minute walk ). Had plenty of very hot water with a lot of pressure. The staff at this hotel are fantastic, from the groundskeepers, to the front desk staff to the maids and bar staff, great group of employees!
PROS: lots of fish for snorkeling, HOT water, facility maintenance and cleanliness, on-site dive shop, private beach with steps into ocean,
CONS: This resort offers Cruise Ship patrons a run-of-the-resort day rate. When the cruise ships are in-port and lots of people have purchased the day package, internet speed becomes unusable. I would suggest the hotel staff evaluate the need to allow internet access to anyone beyond over-night guests. The Cruise Ship customers already have internet access on-ship.
