Although the hotel lacks some of the fancier amenities and has seen better days, there's still something magical about its 1970s shabby gentility. The relatively low room rate reflects the fact the property has been in need of maintenance for several years. Rooms are spacious and perfectly adequate, though not as luxe as those in other similarly priced hotels on the island. A lovely beach, where drinks are served and towels dispensed, sits right across the road. The hotel's restaurants are best avoided, though, since the service is generally slow and the food uninspired.
