The Point Review

Spread along a rocky point, the hotel has a premier location, with captivating ocean views, but it isn't very well maintained. The point is outlined with a wooden boardwalk that overlooks the sea and rocks below. Just behind it are a series of white-stucco buildings that hold the well-equipped guest rooms; each has a large terrace with an ocean view through the foliage. Rooms are bright and colorful, with small bathrooms, but have low ceilings, and are a bit time-worn. The grounds and large poolside deck are shaded by huge trees. The open-air restaurant ($–$$) has sea views and is one of the nicer spots to eat on the island, specializing in fresh seafood.
