Given some of the comments on here I had feared that we had made a mistake in our booking. However, being here has been a pretty good experience on the whole. A nice quiet place with a great view over the sea. After an initial problem meaning our allocated room was not ready for us, the room we ended up with was comfortable, clean and had air conditioning that worked well. There are shared spaces at the end of each floor with sofas and chairs looking out to sea -a great place to pass some time in the tropical storms. The included breakfast is meagre... a mini muffin and a cup of tea/coffee/chocolate, but there are paid for options too and the huge bowl of "muesli"-in essence freshly made fruit with granola and yoghurt topped with honey is value for $5 given that you also get the mini muffin and coffee.
A couple of niggles - like you need to pay daily for your room and the staff can be a bit "vague" sometimes even when it comes to the tours that they organise. But I guess it is the Caribbean way and part of the island experience.
Overall, yep, pleased we stayed here.
