There were many things that we enjoyed about The Summit Resort Hotel. The view from our "premium view room" (4B) was outstanding. The size, comfort, and cleanliness of our room was very good. Relaxing on the balcony in the evening, and, sleeping at night was a pleasure due to the peaceful atmosphere. The location is good if you want to be relatively close to the airport, without too much airport noise. The staff was friendly, and, responded to questions and/or problems promptly. Those are the positives.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at The Summit Resort Hotel, however, there are some negatives, in our opinion, that should be considered. The hotel is not located on a beach. The nearest beach at Mullett Bay is about a 10 minute walk, or, you can drive to it in just a few minutes. We were aware of this prior to booking the room, so it wasn't a problem for us. The hotel has a restaurant, however, during our stay there were so few patrons, we were not sure that it was even open for business. When we asked the front office about the restaurant, we were told that there should be a menu in our room, but, we had none. As a result, we never ate at the restaurant. We don't really consider this a problem for us, it's just a lost opportunity for the hotel. One recommendation we have for the hotel is to improve the ambiance of the pool area at night. We feel that if the pool, and surrounding area had better lighting, it would be more inviting. Our final negative that we feel we should mention, and it's a big one, is that there are cockroaches. On two of the five nights that we stayed, we found live cockroaches in our room. As I mentioned earlier, we found the room to be adequately cleaned, but still, finding cockroaches in your room is an unnerving experience. We're not sure if this is an isolated incident, or, if this is an ongoing problem. Our guess is that with our unit, and any other that has a kitchen, this could be a problem. It's unfortunate that we have to mention this because aside from this problem, we enjoyed our stay, and, would consider returning, if there wasn't a pest problem.
