6/10 Good

Very close to jump off point for Pigeon Island. Budget room was very clean but very hot despite the fan. No ventilation and windows didn’t open. Check in and checkout were really slow. Was quite disappointed with the friendly, but exceedingly unhelpful staff - not what I would expect at this more expensive property.

I will come back
In generel we had a fantastic stay. Very friendly and serviceminded staff. Fine rooms, good pool facilities with nice poolbar. And direct to the most beautiful and clean beach. But why do the hotel have this slow - not working wifi all over the resort - only by the reception area had wifi a live. But I will come back never the less, because the resort was wunderful.
