First of all, the hotel is in a great location! Stores, restaurants, and beaches are all a short walk away. The property itself is very pretty with a lovely garden area. The room and bathroom were clean and the cleaning ladies were exceptionally kind and helpful as were the women who serve breakfast. ALL of the staff was amazing, especially Simone and Kenny!!! I was traveling with a friend. We are both young females and the staff ensured that we felt safe and comfortable during our stay. The pool is nice, the drinks are amazing, and it was a lovely stay. There was a tiny bug problem but that is to be expected in a tropical environment. Overall, my friend and I loved our stay and hope to return again soon!

We stayed there for one night because I needed to be close to the airport. This was the absolute dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed at. Mind you I’ve spent a lot of time on a budget in Eastern Europe and China and have seen sketchy hotels. The common areas are cute in a shabby chic way but the room/bathroom were ICK! All of the linens towels/sheets were gray (not original color) and smelled musty like they had been washed with kitchen towels. My thoughts were if the sheets smell this bad I don’t even want to think about the bedspread! The bedside lamp had what appeared to be dust but on closer inspection it was a layer of greasy dust so this thing had not been wiped in a looong time. I can handle peeling paint, and the occasional missing tile if things are clean but this place was faaaar from clean. The vanity in the bathroom was originally white but it had such a nasty layer of scuz that it appeared streaky gray. Don’t stay here! Go to Toby’s where even if it’s not super up to date at least it’s very clean. Only reason I didn’t was because they were booked. Never again!!!

The hotel is attractive in a shabby chic way but misses out on supplying todays travellers with what they expect, internet in the rooms. As a female solo traveller I rely on this access to plan my next day. Internet access is not much better in the lobby either. The location however is the best, directly across from Dr. Cave beach which is beautiful.

We stayed 1 night and that was more than enough. Our family was exhausted from lack of rest. The motel is located on a busy street where you hear every car/bus and lots of honks. The rooms surround the pool area which has a dance club style party every night beteen 7pm-11pm. The music was so loud, it was impossible to sleep and even watching TV was a challenge. Then there was the AC unit. While the room was cool, the unit was very loud. We almost immediately regretted our choice to book here as we learned about the extra fees for things. 1st there is no airport shuttle and a cab was about $15 for a 5 minute ride. At check in we learned it would be an $80 deposit plus $3 daily charge to use the in room safe. This made us nervous as the street had many bars on windows and fences. We really were unsure if we would be safe and considered leaving. The free WIFI is only in the public areas not in room. Local calls are also an extra charge and require an upfront deposit. We learned the motel is not affiliated with Doctors Cave Beach Club, so if we wanted access it would be $7 per person to gain entry. Then there are the issues with decor/amenities. Hard mattresses, dated furniture and no elevator. No water, coffee or toiletries were provided in the room. The tub had no plug and the water in the shower kept going hot to cold. I would say the staff was nice and welcoming, but spend your money somewhere else!
