Tia's Bamboo Cottages Review

Tia himself built these charming but rustic cabins, which sit on the side of a hill, amid a picturesque, natural setting. The small wooden guest cottages each have a window, double bed, mosquito net, sink, toilet, and terrace with a hammock. One cottage has its own sulfur mineral pool plus a cold shower; others have hot showers. Below the cottages are two mineral springs, which guests are free to use. There's a small restaurant, open to the public, serving simple Caribbean food.

    Horrible Customer Service!

    We got there at 3pm on a Friday and booked the trip a month in advance for 2 nights at Tia. When we arrived they informed us that they gave our rooms away to 3 other people that had trouble with their flights but that we could check in tomorrow. WHAT!!!!!!???? For 2 hours we tried to sort it out and find another place to stay because at this point we were on an island we didn't know and the 5 of us are officially homeless for the night.

    We ended up staying at a very nice hotel downtown (the only one with vacancy) and spent 4 times what we were expecting to spend at Tia's. What a HUGE diappointment, and no sympathy from the manager or his wife. They offered us a free drink. That was it...I will NEVER reccomend this hotel ever! They didn't offer to help us find another place, the manager never ever showed up, he expected his poor wife to deal with it and she had no authority to do so! DISASTER at TIA's, that's what the hotel should be named. Good luck if you book with Tia!
