Stayed mid January 2013 from Thursday through Monday. Location is perfectly situated right in the middle of the St. Lawrence Gap, which is where most of the bars, restaurants, and clubs are in Christ Church for tourists. Bars & clubs are a nice mix of tourists and locals. As this is right in the middle of The Gap, it's also located right across the street from an open-air bar and a regular club. We had a one bedroom suite with the bedroom facing the front of the hotel and the living room and balcony facing the back, but the noise at night was loud no matter what part. If you plan on staying out late, not a problem, but if want to go to bed early one night- wear yourself out during the day so you are too tired to care about the noise. Friend said "it felt like the door was shaking." Room was nice and spacious. Bed was big, but pull out sofa wasn't very comfortable though. Shower pressure is good, but toilet didn't work properly all the time. Maintenance fixed relatively quickly though, and if that failed we used the pots to through water in the toilet. View from the balcony is absolutely amazing and pool was good as well. Good food and drinks at poolside bar, but be careful of the bar stools.. a little wobbly. Hotel staff nice, but reception not as helpful as one would expect for a tourist hotel. Sometimes didn't get information and other times received incorrect information. There were several different receptionists- one was nice and somewhat helpful, other's weren't, and one was down right rude to one of my friends. Hotel is beachfront, but you can't access the beach from the hotel because there isn't any "beach". It's right over the water, but minutes away from beautiful Dover beach. A/C and fan worked very well and no mosquitoes or other bugs, but did have a slight small ant problem in the kitchen only. For an inexpensive stay I would tell friends about this place, but with all the caveats i listed above. Had a great time in Barbados.
