Very cute resort for a good price. We heard it was closing down which is sad. We met lots of lovely couple that have been going there for 20 years. We personally only had breakfast there, because we wanted to go out to eat in town at night. For lunch we would cross the road and go eat some street food for cheap and delicious. We did take full advantage of the all inclusive package for the nice drinks by the beach. Nice location directly on the beach. Would recommend if you’re looking for something quiet. We stayed South of the island for a week and finished our journey here.

Fabulous staff and food! Thank you so much for a lovely stay on the west coast. Although the hotel is closing shortly and it's rooms are past their best, the beach, the food and the staff more than made up for that. Sorry you won't be there next time we come for a holiday xx

Our second visit to this hotel. We love the fact that it is right on the beach & so close to the shops & restaurants of Holetown. Sadly closing & being demolished so it was our last time there.
