I booked this hotel for my cousins, as a honeymoon getaway gift. When the young couple arrived, they were informed that no rooms with air conditioning were available, only a fan. There was no mention of this on the site when I booked the room (site showed 7 rooms available). Then I tried to cancel the booking, I was delayed past the time of getting my Expedia refund and was told, "That it was at the discretion of the hotel to waive the fee". (Coincidently, the fee was more than the room) This is ridiculous and frankly a joke. Not the first time I've had this problem, but it will be the last.

Lovely hotel by the sea.
The Waterfront Insular Hotel is a wonderful rustic hotel. Very tropical, Polenisian feel. Fantastic lush, green gardens. Beautiful ocean views. Although the hotel is quite advance in years the rooms, hallways, lobby, restaurant, grounds are very well maintained. The service given by all the staff is fantastic. The hotel I think is about 50 some years old and management continues to preserve that grand hotel ambience. The bedroom we stayed in was large with a spacious balcony facing the pool ( good sized pool but needs to be modernized). The bedroom was fresh and clean but needs to be updated to continue with the minimalist tropical zen like ambience. The bathrooms are well taken cared of by housekeeping but definitely needs a facelift from the original 1950s construction. Waterfront Insular Hotel - is a lovely resort hotel that needs just a little tweaking ( an infusion of money though) to elevate it to a 5 star status.

The hotel is a very nice place. A older hotel but very clean and rooms are very presentable. Unfortunately, we booked the hotel for 2 night hoping to have an enjoyable stay. We had a 10 year old boy. We were expecting to take advantage of the pool and the beach. With disappointment, the pools was closed for maintenance, not sure how long it was closed for prior to our arrival. There was green algae in the water, so it could have been close for some time. We were told that no children under the age of 18 are allowed to swim on the beach. So our 10 year old was disappointed. The hotel knew that we were bringing a 10 year old, they could have told us about the pool closure and the beach restriction. We could have book another hotel. Otherwise, the rest of the hotel was fairly clean and presentable and the staff did go out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
