We had the pleasure ( NOT ) to spend a night recently after missing a connection at the airport.
Unfortunately we never had the time to check it out, as it was already dark & we were both tired.
We also had to be back at the airport before 5am the next morning.
I'm shocked at how good some of the reviews are of this sad excuse for a hotel!!!
When the taxi pulled up outside it looked ok but OMG the room was a bomb scare.
When we were shown the room by the girl at reception we were in shock.
As soon as you entered the room a foul smell hit you & every bone in your body screamed run.
They even had an old fridge but the door would not close. The nice girl gave us 2 bottles of water & retreated to the safety of her reception desk. After all this was her best room available.
The TV was a very old big box type & all the electrical goods i.e. Kettle / micro wave were balanced on top of a unit ready to fall. The aircon was above the large window & struggled to cool the room. We were set upon mozzies as soon as we arrived.
I tried to plug in my anti mozzie device but the socket on the wall was hanging out & in a dangerous state. It does make you wonder if Antigua ever inspect hotels. 3 stars is wishful thinking. I've stayed in better youth hostels.
There was hairs & old toothpaste in the sink. I don't think it was possible to clean without the use of a sand blaster. The very old shower had knobs hanging off.
Our poor excuse for a room overlooked the pool where some Canadian students were having a party. The poor we souls had been here for a month.
I asked for another room but I was just shown the room next door which was just as bad.
The only saving grace is our 4am wake up call & the taxi on the way to the airport. I would not stay here for 1 day never mind a week even if it was free. Life is too short.
Think Faulty Towers with sun. I can't comment on the pool or location as this is irrelevant when the room is a arm pit.
