1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Very disappointed with this hotel, particularly given its high price and branding as a "luxury hotel." A couple details: - Saw a bunch of roaches in our room - Staff was not very helpful - Food is pretty low quality, and extremely expensive - Location is bad - around 30 mins from Placencia. Particularly annoying given the low quality of the restaurant. - Beach furniture is unusable

4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
The stay overall was good, however, I think the rooms are a little outdated and could use some repairs and better upkeeping. The room service was a bit delayed and would have to call to follow up.
