This place was an apartment complex a couple of miles south of the main part of town. It was at best "okay." The facilities in the apartments were nice: kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room. But the place was old and dowdy. It desperately needs a facelift. And everything--everything--extra costs extra: Internet, for example. They did do our laundry for an extra charge, and that was a positive service.We were looking for something more upscale. Reading the other reviews, I could imagine that this place might be very comfortable for a family vacation for a week. Yes, it is on the water (but so are most resorts/hotels on this island). But we were disappointed because we were looking for something nicer, even if it cost more. We were told that this resort was now in receivership, and run by the bank. Maybe that is why there seems to be so little new investment. Don't misread this review: this place is adequate and from a functional point of view, it met our needs. I think *** stars is about right (out of five). The adjacent restaurant was actually quite good, and quite lively.
