We arrived at the Sheraton expecting alot of this international chain. The lobby was impressive and we received good service, including a welcome drink, although this is nothing out of the ordinary in this part of the world.
We stayed in a garden room view which was quite nice, with a large bathroom and was well equipped.
The pool area however is awful. There is loud construction work going on. The pool is dated, dirty and a very tacky area. Rows of plastic sunbeds cramed in a small area so you have to sit right next to everyone else. The pool bar has awful music playing very loudly and serves terrible overpriced food. It resembled a holiday camp and was not of the standard I would expect of Sheraton on what is meant to be an island paradise.
The beach area, meant to be on of the best on the island is tiny, with black sand and cloudy sea.
We had dinner in the Spice Trader restaurant one evening, there was a special buffet meal and entertainment, which we did not know about until we arrived. Terrible entertainment which I can only think was the staff having some kind of joke, but the food was very good.
I was glad to be only staying here for 3 nights.
