Property is nice and beach is just steps away. Room was clean. Not super fancy or anything but fine for people that just want to enjoy the island and not spend a lot of time in the room. My only complaint would be that beach chairs are only provided from 9am-5pm. We would have liked to utilize the chairs a little later in the evening.

The room cannot have central air only an AC unit and it was very noisy all night. The place is fine, but I don’t know how it’s called a Resort nothing special but another hotel, but they do charge a resort fee. Also, the hotel is half empty, and we were placed in a room farthest from the beach.

We were there for five days and did not have anyone come to clean our room. When we said some thing at the end of the trip, they said we were supposed to ask for someone to come in. When we got there earlier they had said they would do it every other day due to Covid restrictions. We had four people staying in the room and they only had towels for two. When we asked for more they gave us some attitude. When we asked for more coffee because they only had enough for two people they strung up bag of coffee and a bag of towels at our door . It was very passive aggressive and there was no place to put the six towels, six face cloths and six hand towels that they left for us. I would never go back here. There’s too many other places that were way nicer staff wise

The beachfront and the pool area are both lovely and well-maintained. The hotel facilities are dated, but clean and reasonably well maintained.

The facilities were great and the location was great, the price was good (fair and reasonable), but some of the staff were "just going through the motions." One staff member was great, the rest were not really friendly.
