I decided to visit an island that was beneath the hurricane belt to avoid the hurricane season in June, good choice. I avoided the hurricane but the heat was sweltering so be sure to take sunscreen. Nonetheless, I wanted to be on an island to celebrate my Bday and I did just that.
Unfortunately, my initial encounter with my room was not so pleasant but the matter was resolved with a negotiated upgrade price. Then, I received a Bday slice of cake which was very thoughtful of Nina, who was working the front desk. However, I just read another visitor's review which included cake and champagne, I missed out.
Next, I must mention Prisca who provided GREAT service throughout our trip. She was an excellent host!!! In addition, Lillie, the waitress in Portfino was the BEST.
Lastly, I was quite disturbed to learn that there was a free shuttle into town after paying $30. per day for transportation into town. NO ONE at the front desk ever mentioned this complimentary service, although provided suggestions to go into town. In addition, I just read a review about a complimentary breakfast. I was not aware of this either. Please understand that these complimentary services are much appreciated by visitors. I trust that vacationers are not cheap but complimentary is always nice and places a smile on visitors faces.
Overall, GREAT trip!!! and the property is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Very romantic during the evening, its quite picturesque sitting pool side or beach side while dining, thanks to Prisca.
