  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Great views, poor breakfast

Supplied continental breakfast left much to be desired. A single cup coffee maker to make coffee, tea, and hot water for oatmeal is grossly inadequate for a breakfast bar. Zero protein with continental breakfast. Three of us, two yoghurts... Views were great, people were friendly and helpful.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The property was right on the water and was a very pretty view. They had just got over hurricane Dorian so they only had electricity back the night before we got there. The room was unique and clean but old and dated as were the bedding.

The pool was great. Service at the restaurant was a little slow, but the food was good. Very friendly and accommodating. Wifi was hit and miss depending on where you were on the property.
