This place has so many positives, the best being the one from which it gets its name. The sound of waves all night was so soothing and the views over the water were great. Rooms were big and clean and bed was comfy. Kitchen was pretty well equipped- only thing missing was spoons- we had to eat our cereal with forks until we smuggled out some plastic spoons from a restaurant! Bathroom was clean and water pressure was decent. We arrived late on a sunday due to delays in our flight to the island, which meant it would be hard to shop for breakfast suppliers. Our host gave us a very thoughtful basket of goodies with cereal and enough milk for the first day, granola bars, a bag of microwave popcorn and a couple of other snacks.
The main downside for us was that the AC was way too small for the room. We actually were put in 2 other rooms before the one we finally stayed in, both of which had broken AC units. The one we lived in for a week had AC but not enough to make the room truly cool. It was better than nothing but we didn't have a sheet over us at night any night we were there b/c we were so hot. Other things that were not as great was that the host did not give good local info. For example, the night we arrived there was a weekly pigroast at the restaurant nearest the hotel, but when we asked about places to eat that evening she didn't even mention it. We didn't find out til the next day and were not there a week later when the next pig roast party happened. A similar thing happened the next night in which again we missed a once a week event b/c she didn't think to let us know it was an option. I guess its not her job to be our tour guide, but as the nearest thing to a concierge, it would have been nice to have a good hold on the events in the area and to share that information with guests. The other thing I guess was more my error was that reading the site description I got the impression that you'd walk out of your room and onto cane bay, where in reality cane bay was a 5 minute walk down a rather busy road. Its certainly walking distance, but not as easy when schlepping mask, fins etc for snorkeling as I had hoped when booking the trip. Overall though, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a room away from the crowd.
