We stayed at The Hotel after a 10 night Caribbean cruise and thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. When we first checked in and were shown to our standard room in the main hotel block, We were very disappointed with the room that had a stained carpet, smelled musty and worst of all it had a frosted glass window - so no outward view. We really did not want to spend 4 nights here. After expressing our disappointment, we were shown to an upgraded room in the hotel block almost next door and partly on Ocean Drive. This room was superb, roomy, clean, great views and a huge bathroom with generous walk in shower - very very nice indeed. We paid for an upgrade, but it was worth it. The hotel is in a great location, close to all of the action without being noisy. The superb beach is just across the road.
Concierge at the hotel was very good and everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. A special thanks to Dan, who showed us to our room when we first checked in.
We would recommend Fresh on 5th for light breakfasts and lunches at a reasonable price. Fresh fruit, salads and great French bread rolls made to order.
Overall a lovely stay and a great experience.
