A Friendly, Safe Resort with Great Staff

Jenefer H (Ottawa, Canada) on Jan 19, 2023

Initially we were very disappointed with our room. The shower had no hot water and when you ran it it flooded the bathroom floor. And the toilet did not flush properly in spite of it being plunged! But the front desk staff - Waldron and Franklin were most helpful and efficient in moving us into another room the next day. It was an upgraded room in the building right on the beach with the best views ever. We were so grateful, and this move completely changed our whole vacation for the better. The choice of food was good, and sufficient for us. However, we ate mainly salads and vegetables as the meat and fish offerings were not all that appetizing. Although the location is close to restaurants and shops, being an older couple, we decided it was safer to just stay put. There were plenty of security guards surrounding the resort, all of whom were diligent and friendly. The stretch classes and dancercise on the beach were fun. But the incessant loud music not only blasting from the bars and resort but also the restaurant next door for 12 hrs a day did not do much for a peaceful holiday. Also at any time there were 5-8 dogs in packs barking and running around the beach. They appeared to be friendly but barked a lot. The chickens and roosters hopping around the beach only added to what I can only call, this rather rustic resort. The beach is lovely, and we were grateful the invasive piles of seaweed were being constantly cleared away. The staff at this resort work extremely hard and are anxious to please.

Overall Terrible experience

Brie P on Jan 18, 2023

When we arrived the front desk took nearly an hour to find our reservation and after which they were not informative about the property. There was no beverages offered in check in, nothing stocked in the mini bar, The food at the buffet was dry and lukewarm with very few options and did not taste great. Their beverages (sodas) tasted of salt water also the water from the sink. The bed was uncomfortable.. there was no night life and the only restaurant available with the all inclusive was not even open so you had no option but to eat at the buffet or pay extra for the sky bar. They also did not offer any room service and only had limited hours where they would serve food. The beach area was small with outdated furniture. They nickel and dimed you with extra charges for the beds at the pool etc. Parking was extremely limited on a very narrow dirt road.. this is definitely more of a 2 star hotel with the motel feel.. do not recommend..
