  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Price charged by Hotels.com was too high for the quality of the property. Rooms are much older than appear on the site. Food service was poor.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This is the way a stay at a tropical island should feel. Very reasonable price. Quiet and peaceful, but close to markets and attractions. Loved the feel of the whole facility. Will definitely return.

Nice hotel.

Very nice hotel, room was clean, some staff were friendly. Suggestion would be for the staff to not be so on guests to check out on time. Does not make the guest always feel welcome. NEED BETTER BREAKFAST OPTIONS!!!! And need better overall food!!
