I have recently stayed at this property dec 7-15th. I have seen many changes over the years with this hotel. There have been times when I think the property is showing wear but this particular trip the entire outside was being painted with a fresh coat of white and the brown trim and beds looked newly painted. The linens on the outside beds looked a bit yellowed and worn and the decorative bed pillows were faded, however these linens get extreme conditions and would probably need replacing yearly. I have certainly been at the property when they have been new. The sheets on the beds are always bright white and cleaned and fresh daily. The beds are not torn as another previous reviewer noted. Some of the plastic covers the surround the foam mattresses are ripped but can only be seen during a rain storm when the sheets are off but in no way interfere with the comfort.
As to the rooms the are four basic levels and that is the most important to understand. I have now stayed in all of the room categories. I think it's hard to gather the true set up of the hotel so I will once again try to explain the rooms. First is the partial ocean view rooms. The rooms are the size of a hotel room and are located on the side of the main hotel. It's a stretch to me that they are called partial ocean view because you basically have to stand on the balcony and turn ur head out over railing toward the ocean to see it. They overlook the small boardwalk down to the main deck and overlook the parking lot. I will say these rooms are nicely decorated and comfy but not a great amount of space.
The second room category is a ocean view 1bd. These are located across the street in a separate complex, each room does have a view of the distant ocean. The complex has its own small pool but I have never really seen anyone in it. The rooms have a large living room and separate large bedroom. I have noticed that some of the furnishings in some of these units are a bit worn but others are not. So the hotel may be slowing replacing them.
The third rooms are the oceanfront studios. These are only located on the second and third floors not on the Ground floor. These are a much larger hotel room with a small kitchen area. They are directly on the ocean and have beautiful views and nice size balconies.
The fourth category is the 1bd and 2bd oceanfront rooms. Most are on the ground floor and have the huge balconies. The center ground floor 1bd have the largest balconies. The rooms have huge living rooms and kitchen areas but no stoves. Just sink, microwave, and fridge.
All rooms are nicely tiled and have nice bathrooms with marble accents and granite tops in bathroom and kitchen. Some have great rain shower heads. The beds are all very comfortable and linens crisp and clean daily if u choose.
The best rooms by far would be the 1bd oceanfront rooms on the ground floor but they can be pricey especially in high season but in my opinion they are worth the money for the convenience.
I absolutely love this hotel for the boutique look and feel. It is absolutely perfect for kiteboarding and wind surfing. The surf tends to be a bit rough and not a great place to sit on the beach but the kite watching is always entertaining for me. My husband has been a kite boarder for 8 years hence why we have been here so many times. The staff is always super friendly and remembers our names and faces for years. It's nice to see the staff staying at this place thru the years and says a lot about the owners.
Oh and security is great and AC is cold but only in the bedrooms of the larger rooms. The small grocery store is located a few short blocks away however I would not walk there alone at night. There is a full size grocery store located in Ostinis which is a short drive away. I suggest renting a car to really enjoy the island. Rent a surf board, take a kite lesson or a paddle board lesson right next door. Very friendly island and great hotel. If your looking for lap of luxury, to be pampered, a spa and calm waters do not stay here. If your looking for a quiet, relaxing, comfy and beautiful hotel this is the place for you.
