Blue Parrot was situated about 10 mins walk along the beach from the pier or 3 minute taxi ride. The entrance was in need of some repair as very uninviting for a first impressions. We were greeted by friendly staff & shown to our little bungalow, a couple back from the beach. The door was open when we arrived so the room was very very hot. The air con was totally useless for the first 12 hours but after this it was ok. The room looked good with all concrete moulded into bed plynth, bedside tables & dresser etc, a great concept but when the concrete heats up it takes a long time to cool again. There was no seating, no TV in the room & no fridge & although you can do without the TV, the fridge is a must as water was quite expensive at the bar & of course needed to clean teeth etc. They do not have a pool but guests are invited to use the one next door as you cannot swim in the sea as it is too shallow at this beach. The restaurant is a little expensive so we ate next door also as they had good food at a reasonable price. Blue Parrot had a nice deck area & also a pool table & hammocks which were used by the staff the whole day it seemed. The place was a littlke untidy so we believe the staff could have been using their time more efficiently like other resorts. We were told the boss was away so thismay have been the reason & the day we left the lawns were getting done. We arrived home one night only to be baled up by dogs, not allowing us to go into our gate. Just as well the manager was still up as she had to come & call the dogs away. This is so not customer friendly. All in all this place could be a nice little resort with a few little extras, however fridges are definitely a must. We were going to stay an extra 3 days but decided to book a resort a little further along the road as the price was the same for a lot better value .
