눉Ok.. The room is basic, very basic.. The power shuts off at 10pm, but
strangely to only select plug outlets and returns at 6am. The WiFi is
$25usd, now, I appreciate that this is standard in some places, but this
is supposed to be a 4 star hotel and I thought the fact I had to pay for
WiFi and then swing my phone around the room trying to get reception was
frustrating at best.
Not many of the hhotel staff speak English and those that do, do not speak it well.. There are something like 4 restaurants on the premises but it is essential you book a table each day - just the kind of duty you want on a relaxing carefree holiday - otherwise you will end up having to eat at the buffet, which serves questionable quality food and you'll also struggle to find a place to sit/hold on to...
The snack bar at the beach for food throughout the day, mainly caters to flys and I would worry about even their health from the standard of the stuff dished up..
The bars always have queues and there's frequently ONE member of staff manning it, I didn't drink often, but were I there to enjoy a few drinks, this would frustrate me...
I was there on business and my trip was paid for, I have no axe to find with the resort, but I would be very disappointed had I have paid thousands of pounds to travel all the way to the Caribbean only to be greeted with this facility..
My advice would be not to go unless it's aa total bargain and do not expect anything greater than 3 stars in terms of quality..
눇The hotel was nicely presented, a bit shabby in areas, but those areas
were essentially minor cosmetic parts. The location of the hotel was
quite nice with a pleasant view of and proximity to the beach.
