I stayed at this hotel at several occasions and tried several different types of rooms: they all are about same - same furniture, all have split AC units and a ceiling fan, they all have same small terrace which I hardly used because of the mosquitos. I really liked the welcome cocktail, and mini-burgers with French fries they used to have on the bar menu. The swimming pool, and the jacuzzi are nice, but there are lot mosquitos. Same with the bar area, and the terrace overlooking the ocean, where they serve breakfast. The breakfast is reasonably good, although service could be better. There is also a small but well equipped gym which is hardly used. I never saw anybody using it. The hotell also offers different spa services which i never had the opportunity to use. The hotel has a tour desk which offers different day tours to see the main attractions on the island - the mountains and waterfalls, but also scuba diving or snorkeling tours. The hotel is located next to another one, right next to the peer for large cruise ships, everyday around 8-9am a cruise ships brings several thousands tourists. The area becomes a very busy place - the tour organizers with their mini vans trying to get their clients, and the souvenir sellers, etc. The ship lives the island around 4-5pm taking back the thousands of tourists.. and leaving the island in peace.. I know that a few years back, a French manager took over the hotel, and she did lots of changes. etc. I can imagine that the place including the menu could be better today..
