Okay so if you booked this hotel or are wanting to book but are iffy about doing so because of some of the horrible reviews people wrote about the hotel being old, the food being terrible, & the employees being rude, my husband & I just came back from our honeymoon & we had the best time of our lives! I actually tried getting my refund multiple times because I was so worried about the hotel from reading some bad reviews. They weren't able to do a refund so we pretty much just had to suck it up & see for ourselves what the hotel was all about. First of all the island itself is amazing! The waters are clear, the people from the island are super friendly, & the weather is always warm! So the taxi ride to the hotel was $20 as I read it would be in other people's comments. We were greeted with cool towels & champagne. The front desk manager is the one who checked us in & I wish I remembered her name but she was beyond amazing! Check out was easy with no issues. We stayed on the first floor which was recently renovated with your own personal cabana. It was a nice touch. Yes the rooms are very plain & outdated but our plan was to not stay in the room for our honeymoon. They actknowleded that it was our honeymoon & had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us in our room. That was nice of them. Our showerhead or pressure of the water was perfect. We didn't have any issue with that like other people did. Another thing people complained about in reviews was the musty smell.

"Great location, food was VERY good at the buffet"
The buffet is the BEST and the BBQ beach party was great. The oven bake pizza was to die for!!! While checking in i was told i was getting 2 beds but instead got a room with a single bed and had to literally got to 4 rooms until one came up as a double bed. That part got very annoying but at one point got a complimentary upgrade to a room but it ended up being a single bed so couldn't take it. The beds were comfortable, bathroom was nice except there was some broken tile pieces. Just less then 2 minutes from the airport to the hotel by taxi. OVerall I would return to this hotel because of the location and the price wasn't bad because i got a little discount through the site i was using.
