Booked on line for three days, on arrival i had second thoughts. The entrance is not appealing and the pungent odor from the fish warehouses across the street was not nice. I was greeted by very pleasant staff and shown to my room that was clean and neat. The smell of fish had disappeared and I settled in with a very hot shower. The mattresses have all been firm and comfortable. Rooms all have fans, some have a/c.
I decided not to travel around the island but to take it easy and explore Stonetown. Even though they were fully booked for the rest of the week they were able to shuffle things around and make room for me to stay another four days.
It is close to everything and the breakfast is a good start for each day.
