This resort has probably the nicest beach. It’s clean, not too crowded. The views are amazing. All the rooms are ocean front. We stayed on the first floor, so when you are on the balcony, you are pretty much on the beach. That is amazing. The Restaurant there has a very good chef. The service depends on who is working there. First night service was very slow, but I admit that they were really busy. Following days service was good. Now to the bad part. First night they put us in a room with a malfunctioning AC. It didn’t just cool not sufficiently and we couldn’t sleep cause it was hot, but it was also leaking and the sound of drop rhythmically dripping all night is so annoying, all three of us couldn’t sleep because of it. We had to move to another room next night. So one terrible nigh plus more work with moving and rearranging all your stuff during your vacation. At least we slept well the following nights. As to cleanliness, the bathrooms are disgusting. The mirrors are covered with dirt from insects and other stains. The metal on the faucets looked dirty. I went over all the surfaces with the travel size Clorox wipes. We also had a cockroach in our closet in the second suite. For the price, it has to be cleaned better. Nevertheless, the ocean views and sounds make up for all that inconvenience.

Thank you for your review.

3 out of 5
This hotel was nice as it sat directly on the beach and all rooms faced the beautiful bay. The rooms were spacious. The hotel was very stingy with the towels 2 bath, 2 hand, 2 washcloths. The restaurant was so-so. We had breakfast one day and all the entrees were full meals, nothing like just a fruit bowl or just a muffin. All or nothing. Now they did have a little Tiki bar with some small breakfast stuff, but no seating. Dinner was fair; there is much better food at other places on the Island (French Quarter Bistro, Sea La Vie, Virgellios, Hook/line/sinker, Stonehouse) The worse part of the hotel was the water temperature of the shower. It was either very, very hot or cold. Nothing in between. We told the desk several times and they said someone would look into it, but we were doubtful anything was done.
