This has got to be the biggest ripoff on the whole island!! When you look at a room, they show you the one cottage that's kept in decent condition. And then when you check-in you realize you got taken . The cottages smell like mold and it takes less than 12hours for the mold and mildew to show back up in the "cave" of a shower and inside, yes inside, the medicine cabinet . But wait, there's more: cockroaches scatter when you turn on the lights and for days the kitchen was infested with ants. Even though the place was furnished with pots and pans and dishes, i went and bought our own because theirs were too scummy to think about using. Wait.....it gets worse.....my daughter actually caught HEAD LICE while we were there, and after talking to other residents we found that to be very common. This place is noisy, dumpy, the fish house never gets cleaned so it reeks. But the final straw? One "guest" that was staying here long term had several aggressive dogs.....one of which bit off the finger of a little boy who was playing outside . Did the management do anything? Nope!!! At that point we left even though we had been paid through the month. If you want a noisy, smelly, bug-infested vacation then this is your place . But if you want a nice place to stay where you feel safe and get what you pay for then keep on looking!
