    The hotel is situated on the North of the island and is a small place right on the sea having 2 nice beaches yards from the bar. We got a taxi from the airport and cost 13 USD which is what was expected. The room was OK, but could do with an update. When we boiled the kettle, all the electrics went off ! An electrician had to come and fix it. There are tea/coffee etc in the room, but no milk ! So you can't actually make a cuppa in the morning. The aircon was very good with a modern easy to use unit. The bathroom was OK but there is a basket containing 'body butter' whatever that is. But no evidence of shower gel or shampoo. There are some soaps for use, but they smell like a really bad cheese yuk! Towels are changed daily. The restaurant is OK but there is not a great choice of foods. They have an a la carte part to the retaurant but we never saw anyone in there. The place is supposed to be run by Italian's but I never saw any Italian food? There is a cat which is in the restaurant daily meaowing at diners begging for food which is so annoying. I don't want any animals around me when eating. The hotel have a food dish for the cat, thereby attracting it back all the time..they should stop feeding it and it will go elsewhere. I'm sure this is a health issue? The large pool was very warm, and there were some great sunbeds, but there were only 3 parasols ? If you walk down to the 2 beaches, you will find sunbeds and fixed wooden parasols. Towels are provided which was good. I had a good sleep every night, BUT if you are a light sleeper you will not appreciate the extremely loud crickets chirping outside, they are EXTREMELY loud and chirp all night until sunrise! Due to it's isolated position, it's a good job it's all inclusive because if you want to go out you have nowhere to walk to. There is a restaurant about 5 mins walk away called 'the Bistro' which is very very very expensive (£120 for 2 with wine) but you can't walk there as the roads are very uneven and no street lighting. You have to get a cab which costs 20USD round trip when the restaurant is just under 1km away, yes 1km !!! Enough of the hotel, now Antigua in general. The taxi's are a complete tourist rip off ! It cost us 90USD (around £80) for a taxi to English Harbour which is 12 miles away. If you look at car hire, a small car costs 60USD plus fees/taxis/CDW etc making it 100USD per day! There are no mopeds for rent, but the local bus cost just 1 USD from the hotel to Saint Johns which was great, but on the return journey we had to wait 45 mins until enough people were on the bus for it to set off. I wouldn't us the bus at night. The roads are mainly unkept mud tracks and we almost got hit 3 times head on by other cars. Very dangerous. St Johns is the capital but is a complete 3rd world hole. I was expecting culture, a good vibe etc, but it was most dissappointing. The only place which was as expected was English Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard and Shirley Heights. A good walk around the historic dockyard, then on Thursdays and Sundays up to Shirley Heights where there is a steel drum band, bars and a BBQ which is really good value. It is a must. Other than that, we won't be returning to Antigua. My ankles are also suffering from the numerous mosquito bites. The hotel has some really great staff who are a real credit and we love them dearly.

    Stayed in the hotel with my mom for UWIOC graduation. Staff is extremely amazing, friendly. Stayed on the all inclusive plan, food was good but the drinks on the all inclusive was limited as the blender wasn't working. Had a few small roaches on the room and there aren't any hand rails but the pool was great. The fact that there are 2 lovely small beaches. Another upside, the hotel is located a good distance from the hotel & we had to take taxis.

    Very pleasant and great value for money

    We had the best time at this hotel. The rooms were bright and spacious. The reception was very helpful and the bar always had a good atmosphere- laid back In the afternoons and fun at night with entertainment including a good live band. The pina coladas were the bomb. The restaurant all inclusive buffet was fresh and homemade. They were also very helpful with allergies, running me through each dish daily, and would prepare things specially for me if I wanted. The pool area is very relaxing with beautiful flowers. We loved this hotel, especially considering the price, and would go back.

    Worst holiday

    For an all inclusive hotel this was absolutely horrendous. Wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy, you had a choice of 4 drinks at bar vodka whisky run and gin anything else you had to pay for, didn't like the draft coke so had to pay £3 for a can of diet coke absolutely no entertainment when management was approached they said there was only 20 room's occupied so obviously we wasn't valued guests. I haven't got a problem with a bad hotel cos usually you can go outside in the evening and find your own but there is absolutely nothing around there. Don't book this hotel I'd your looking for a good place it's not going to happen. Also the rooms are cleaned every day but the electrics are something else put the kettle on and everything goes out. What really got to me was the first time I've flown virgin Atlantic, I've been all over the world and seriously I don't think I will book with them again they need to take a long hard look at what hotel's they are offering
