My 14 year old son and I stayed here for three nights on our way to Little Corn. They were at the airport on time to pick us up. The hotel is located down a dirt bumpy road lined with some of the poorest houses on the island. Having said that, the beach right across the street from the hotel is absolutely gorgeous and the best on the island. The room was clean but my personal bed sheets were shredded in some spots. I'm sure they would have changed them had i asked, but i never bothered. The service at the front desk was okay but not overly friendly. The restaurant was adequate but extremely slow. It just seemed to me that they were not equiped to handle the amount of guests that they had when we were there. It took 45 minutes for me to get coffee one morning and then only because i went in and complained. And then refills took another 30 minutes because apparently they only had one pot brewed at a time. The continental breakfast that comes with the room includes, coffee, tea and toast. That's it. No juice, no fruit, no cereal, no nothing. Don't be fooled when they offer "continental". The only other thing that i was disappointed in was the "Boat Bar". The pictures on the website look so nice but that bar didn't look like it had been open in months even years. It definitely wasn't open when we were there. Anytime you wanted a drink you had to walk back to the hotel and find someone to get you something. No full bar.
Overall the hotel is okay. It's not that cheap though. I think the room was still around $100/night with taxes, etc. The best part of the hotel is the beach. There is another restaurant right down the beach that is pretty good and we at there a few times.
