This was my first stay at the hotel, as I had wanted to check it out for myself for a long time. The staff could not have been any more friendly and welcoming, Yes, while the rooms are small, they are extremely clean and attended to promptly each day. My estimation is that the rates are about $100 a night...

I can't thank the staff, the front desk team, the food servers enough for making not only me feel amazing while staying here and appreciated, but for the way they treat all SMART Riders annually. They not only make exceptions to the minimum night stay for this fundraiser annually, but welcome us back with a big smile and appreciation. The...

I stayed at this hotel along long time ago. But I had great memories. It was serendipity I find myself there again, this time I had not made the selection and reservations. The place is full of charm, very clean and is comfortable. It has two pools, a bar. I plan to pick it next time I visit KW!

This was my third visit since March. Met lots of great guys and had some fun. However, I realised that I am guilty of not praising them on previous trips for something I have vociferously criticised other hotels. In most hotels whether high or low end (I have stayed in both), you will find the charging point on the wall...

Con: Prices are *very expensive* for what you get. The rooms are very small. The wall AC is noisy and my be disturbing to sleep. Due to the very high prices, the place attracts mostly very adult client, who can afford the prices. Pro: The team in the pool, bar and the restaurant is excellent. Courteous, polite and helpful. Very...

Spent two nights at this resort. It is large, clean, and offers a variety of services. It has a gym, sauna, steam room, pool, massage and a great staff at the bar and restaurant. We ate most of our meals there and could not have been more satisfied.

Think it says it all in the title but I'll say it again. Best carrot cake ever! Not to mention the friendly and welcoming staff that makes you feel like you've stayed there a million times before. Thank you island house.
