My husband and I were disappointed that they no longer offered their continental breakfast any more. Not sure if it was because of staffing or because of Covid. We've stayed at Sugar Beach Resort before and we'd go back again. The room was nice, clean and we had a wonderful view.

The shower needed some type of mat, it was slippery. It was nice to have staff knock on your door to see if you needed anything, but if you were gone you missed out. It would be nice to be able to slip a piece of paper on the door with your request. Breakfast was incorrect two out of three days.

Thank you for your feedback, I will make sure to pass it along so we can hopefully improve. If you miss housekeeping, you can always call the front desk and ask for anything you need. As for breakfast, we are so sorry that it was not correct and will do better in the future.

Like: Property view from road looks very nice. Being on the beach was nice with very beautiful view. Resort attendants were very nice. Dislike: Beach lounge chairs were horrible dirty and several umbrellas were torn to the point of unusable. Carpet throughout facility was disgusting - horribly dirty. Bathroom floor in hotel room was dirty and door frame was rusting. There was no room cleaning --- when asked about emptying garage, I was giving garbage bags to do it myself. Paid a very high price for room that was dirty and facility that need much repair.

Our rooms were not ready until 6pm! They did offer us a discount but we had to wait in the lobby for hours until our rooms were ready. Breakfast never arrived. We had to hunt it down (they had door to door delivery) and it was packaged / processed / cheap food. The room was filled with lake gnats. Overall - overpriced for the experience
