I recently stayed at this hotel for several nights and I thought I would try to offer a different slant from more recent reviewers! Because, out of necessity, I was there for longer than most reviewers, I think it only fair that I try to stress some positives. Yes, hot water was a premium but the staff tried hard to...

1. The web site picture of the resort are grossly misleading. 2. The place ti terrible. As we drove on up to the resort we immediately knew we made a big mistake.They advertise 3 restaurant; Only 1 existed. The pool was dirty. Don't even think of dipping you toes. The Bay/ocean is safer. 3. 70% of the the roomS are...

The only good thing about this stay was ....it was only for 1 night !!!! The place needs condemning On arrival the checkin was a young lad listening to a iPhone and being honest His attitude was i don't really want to be here regardless of you having to stay Here . You could tell he'd had to endure complaints...

This hotel has tremendous potential but it's a run down horrible mess! Went to Antigua for 3 days, and despite of all the bad reviews I saw on the place i still went and regretted. It was so bad that I had to leave after viewing the place. Guys the place is just a mess- pool was empty, toilet wasn't...

Westjet booked my husband and i into this resort due to a missed connecting flight. First impressions were horrible. The place is a ghost town. The lobby was dark, no one at the bar, an not a hotel guest not be seen. The hotel is empty. The room was outdated to put it nicely. The pool is literally falling apart,...

This hotel may have been grand when it was built about 35 years ago but is in gross disrepair now. There are 256 room but on 40 are booked and open. The rest of the rooms are "under repair." The website is grossly misleading as the paint is chipping on the entire build. Pool water looks clean but the bottom...

At the time of travel, the hotel was being renovated, slowly but surely I guess. I imagine that it was quite majestic in its day. The staff was friendly. The pool was dirty and there were ducks in there.Our room offered a majestic view of the ocean though.

Was apprehensive about selecting this hotel due to the noted poor ratings. Decided to stay there due to the near proximity to St. John's. So I went there with limited expectations. I was surprisingly pleased with my stay there. Very friendly staff especially Mr. Joseph at the front desk. Maybe I was just there at the right time but the...

I booked through Expedia for 2 weeks sunshine. The website said the hotel had 3 restaurants, 5 bars, casino, spa, gym, jacuzzi and pool. A casino and nightly entertainment. There was 1 bar, no poolside bar, a dirty pool, no casino, no entertainment, broken loungers and 1 restaurant that served inedible food from a menu that had 4 choices (1...

Stayed at this hotel for Christmas 2016. It was as many other people stated... completely deserted. Which wasn't the biggest problem. The pools were disgustingly dirty with trash and debris. It was a complete health hazard. There weren't any lounge chairs set up or available. The tennis court is in complete shambles. The playground rusted and dilapidated. The amenities listed...
