When we arrived we were told that our room was not in the main building. No one had mentioned it earlier. also, we were told that a gratuty fee for housekeeping would be added to our bill at the end of the stay. We were given directions to get to our room (no one accompanied us),, and it turned out to be little more than a broom's closet.
At departure the next day, we found tha housekeeping gratuity was also chardged for our 4 months old son. When we mentioned we found this unexpected, management argued it was due, as the child represented extra work for housekeeping!
The restaurant was a pleasent surprise, the food was excellent, and the island warrants a visit. However Island inn should reconsider its pricing and its customer management. Frankly we felt ripped off.
