We stayed in this place about 7-8 years ago when it was lovely without the current poor quality market lmost outside the entrance. I am all for local markets/stalls but not on the door step of a 4 star hotel with scares like - 'watch out for snatch thieves and unsavoury characters etc...'
During our 2 nights stay there , early September 2013, we were given a damp and mouldy room ( mould was growing on the net curtain) on arrival which we turned down. The next room though did not smell of damp was cramped and shabby including the bedding. It appears nothing has been maintained/refurbished in the intervening years. Everything looks shabby.
The breakfast area is dirty. Birds flying into the dining area and bird dirt on chairs were not cleaned. Very dissappointed indeed! Needs mega upgrading. Will not stay there again.
We were however very pleased with the tour of the Island . The driver and guide were excellent. They dropped us off at the airport because of the Friday traffic and saved us stress and extra cost - a nice touch. The helping of food is huge. the baguette and chips for our journey was too much for 2 people!
