We stayed here at the start of march, just at the end of carnival so availability of accommodation was limited.
The place is set back from the main pier up an extremely steep hill, at least a 10 min walk, and is more into the rainforest, which brings humidity and lots and lots of mosquitoes and insects. Take plenty of repellent I got 10 bites alone on the day we arrived.
Rooms- You get what it says on the tin, the rooms are v basic, bed shelf unit and small fridge. some with aircon and some with ceiling fans, we had a room looking onto the garden and it would have been fine if the fan wasn't so noisy and they gave you mosquito nets, plus the bed was a very small double and the mattress was very thin. The combination made sleeping difficult. Although the place was clean and the sheets white and clean.
Breakfast was okay, small choice mainly of bread cheese meat and cakes, but the host was very helpful and tried to assist anyway he could.
The internet only works in the area close to reception , and sometimes not even there.
Also the place has around 7/8 cats that live there, they don't bother you and keep out the
Overall the Island for us was a bit of a let down, it's a tourist rat run, with expensive food and drink. The only things to do are visit beaches and drink. Also the island as a whole seems to have an issue with cats and dogs- it's full of them.
