Great hotel. Really enjoyed the stay; with loads of sun time and helpful staff. The rooms are clean, private and spacious. The beds are nice. The food is also plentiful and the fruits are fresh. The hotel also provides free WiFi at all points. There is a beautiful gazebo overlooking the creek which is divine for romantic dinners.

Great neat hotel on the end of the archipelago. While not the greatest beach location compared to competing properties it does hold its own when it comes to the property as well as value for money. Second time in 3 years and would definitely put it on my consideration list for the next time we're around.

I'll start off by saying that this is a really great hotel, but it could be much better for the high prices that they charge (especially since there are so many amazing resorts in the area). We stayed for 3 nights and were generally happy with our stay although there are some definite pros and cons for the hotel. We...
