I stayed for just 3 nights early Nov, my room wasn't ready on arrival despite sending flight details and agreeing to pay extra. When I got into the room the bins hadn't been emptied, the floor was dirty and I questioned if the linen had been changed. The rooms are noisy, not from the bar but the neighbouring rooms tvs and you can clearly hear others walking around and talking. My room was also located opposite what I think was the cleaners store room so at 0630hrs every morning they started banging around and talking loudly!
The breakfast was aweful, the boiled eggs tasted off and although there was variety it didn't taste right. The evening buffet was pretty much the same and overpriced.
Service as a woman was poor, the staff would immediately attend to a man but would ignore women.
For the price of this hotel I'm sure there are others on the island with better standards and service.
