Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
We do extensive travel worldwide and have stayed at some of the finest facilities. Perhaps due to its isolation on the island, the fees were excessively high like most in the area. Our stay was short and the booking agent had us in a room reserved for pets (we have none) which was not disclosed at the time of the no-refund reservation. The property was well maintained, but dated and definately needed new beds.
