The pictures that promote the resort is not what I got :( The room I was placed in we had to keep turning toilet off at side tap to stop from running, hot water tap in shower would not turn off after first shower and it took maintenance person 10 mins after a second approach to reception to come and sort. Next day both shower taps not working called reception managed to get cold water tap working which was fine as it was extremely hot. Then the air con stopped working. I was only there for 3 nights and they only moved us on the last night to another poolside room which was much nicer. I feeled annoyed as there surely must have been complaints about this room by persons that used it previous to us and yet they still placed us there. Online it reads as 3.5 my husband and I have travelled a lot and this was more of a 2.5.

budget hotel that is not anxious to please
I wasn't happy with the check in. The lady behind the desk was not helpful or hospitable. Also the hotel didn't let us check in a couple of hours earlier, despite the fact that we were leaving the next day long before the check out time. Other spots on the island were very accommodating if they had rooms ready earlier than the check in time. There was major construction on the street outside the hotel so esp in that case they should have made some allowances on every level.
