The location of this spot is excellent, with the ocean views being very nice, and plenty of wonderful food within walking distance. The layout of the room is nice, with a small sectional, a big enough mattress, and a larger than expected shower. HOWEVER, the mattress and pillows were abysmal, and caused me back and neck pain. I ended up swapping the bed pillows with couch pillows so I could sleep. The water pressure is also awful. And most importantly, the customer service was mid at best. Before this morning I definitely would still have recommended this place. But I was told check out is at 10, while never being told their office doesn’t open until 9. Myself and multiple other guests were left scrambling to figure out a way to leave before we missed our flights/boats. When trying to contact the managers for the room I was in (different rooms have different managers), they did not answer and I could not leave a voicemail. I was eventually able to contact a manager for a different room, who did prove helpful (shout out to Richard!) So we all ended up dumping our keys and hoping for the best. A very not fun end to a mostly wonderful trip.

Took a overnight mini vacation with some friends and stayed at this place it Wasn't one of the best place I've been too but the bed was nice and soft and good flowing water. AC blow quit well. However the room wasn't very close to its advertisements and flooring was a bit sandy. Could've focused on cleaning more and better painting 🖼 apart from those. My stay was OK

I stayed her back in Feb 2018. Firstly i booked through booking.com and they took the first night payment off my card before i even saw the room. On arrival i discovered the "budget" room i had booked was NOTHING like the pictures - basically a box with external window. Added to this the pool area is not at all as per the pictures and there is huge building work going on - its a building site! The receptionist could not have cared less and told me to "contact booking.com" and insisted she was the only staff member present. I don't think i have ever received such awful customer service at a hotel. Eventually after much insistence she introduced me to the owner who eventually moved my room the next day. The new room was nice but the building work really doesn't make this a nice place to stay! When its finished it could be reasonably good if they get some staff who actually care.
The atmosphere is more hostel than boutique hotel and the location is the best thing about it right now.
Tip - don't book hotels with booking.com!

Booked unit 18 thru VRBO. Site did not specify it was located at Popeyes, nor that it was on the 3rd floor up steep steps. Would not have booked this if the ad had been accurate, as I have back problems.
No drinking water in unit, air conditioner could not keep up, toilet barely flushed, towels were thread bare , safe did not work, no where to hang clothes…. When we complained , nothing was done at all. We checked out and went elsewhere- but absolutely no refund was allowed. We contacted the site managers and the owners - both were very unhelpful.
The ad for this suite is deceptive about the location & amenities - be careful if you book this location. We would not return or recommend this unit.

We stayed here for 4 days. Don't do it! Blood stained towels, stained bedding. AC unit a joke. Window wasn't seated and make awful noise all night and pooled water. No TV as advertised. Fridge had to be physically moved to plug it in. Shower curtain held up by wire thru ceiling. Pictures are a lie for this room!
I have lots of gross pictures of what it really looks like, just message me.

This place is awful. I had to move rooms due to my room being so full of mould and damp, and when I did they made me pay to move rooms. You should not have to pay to stay in a room that is not a health hazard. There is no restaurant or spa as stated. Everything is dirty including the towels I was given and I would just avoid this place at all costs.

Felt unsafe, kinda grungy, reception was not warm and everything including drinking water was extra. Room was dark, but the AC was extra cold. The door lock was a tiny suitcase lock on a sliding glass door with only one key.

The place was dirty. Shower stall was so slippery I thought I was going to die. Dirty and the freezer didn't work at all. Room 15 sucked. Dirty towels left in the room. Staff thought nothing about it.

Booked this place online but got issues with my credit card (which I use at least 5 times a day, never had this before or after, only at Popeyes). Asked them 3 times to still keep my booking, since i can pay cash at the spot and since I would arrive the next day. They never bothered to send me a reply.
17 minutes before I arrived I got a message that my booking was cancelled by Popeyes.
Staff at the counter was very indifferent and rude. It’s a cheap place and I guess you get for what you pay.

We had a very bad experience at this hotel. Someone broke into our hotel room and I was assaulted in the middle of the night. There are no deadbolts or security latches on the doors. There is no 24 hour security and the after-hours number they provide no one answered even though we called 3 times. The hotel was very unsympathetic and not helpful the next morning with the police and the security cameras they had were not recording, therefore they were unable to help the police with the investigation. Please take caution if you stay here, it was a terrifying experience.

Response from PopeyesBeach, Manager at Popeyes Beach Resort
Responded 30 Jul 2015
It is very unfortunate to get a false,unfair review like this. Let's stick to the facts: This woman was in her room with her husband.She was not alone. She reported her "alleged assault" in her room the next day AFTER they went out scuba diving all day. There is a camera directly above her room and on all sides and front of the property that showed no strangers wandering in the property during the night.We called the police to investigate the matter and they concluded that there was no evidence of forced entry into her room.We have 4 rooms on site that is occupied by our staff,just a few meters away from her room and one of them in fact,right next to this woman's room and no one heard any noise or trouble during the night. We have been renting our rooms for the past 15 years and this is the first time we ever hear of this issue. Based on the facts above, one wonders if this woman has a case of OBE?(Out of Body Experience) Popeye's Management
