This hotel is conveniently located between the airport and Victoria, the capital city. It is true that it doesn't have a beach, so if you're planning to swim and snorkel, you should probably be on the west side of the island, or rent a car to be able to move around easily. But be careful, the drivers are quite aggressive and the roads are narrow without any shoulder in many places.
The hotel itself is decent, the rooms are clean and there is air conditioning in all rooms. I noticed some rain damage on the ceiling in front of the rooms looking towards the island, but since I didn't have the chance to actually examine the rooms I don't know if there is any damage inside.
The food is good and somewhat basic (meat, bread, sauce); you shouldn't expect to be served gourmet meals, this is a small island and the resources are limited. However, the service is excellent. If you can accept the fact that the pace of life is slow in general, you'll find that a promise is still a promise. For example, if your waitress tells you that your dinner will be served in 14 minutes, it will be served exactly in that much time. Even though it seems that the staff is moving slowly, they give you an accurate estimate about how much time will it take to get something.
The front desk staff is especially proactive. We needed a car and they arranged it for us in a matter of minutes. We had the car delivered to us and signed the rental agreement on the spot.
I primarily recommend this hotel for individuals and families who want to be close to the city or the airport, and going to the beach is not the first item on their agenda.
