On the plus side: beautiful, comfortable rooms, quiet hotel, good housekeeping, several restaurants nearby and close to Lamai beach. Unfortunately, the pool situation is a MESS! There aren't enough lounge chairs for everyone. Basically you have to drop off your towel on the

We stayed here for five nights during a month-long trip in October of 2018. Absolutely amazing value for the spend. This hotel would be at least $400 per night at home (Vancouver BC) but cost us less than $70. Gorgeous sprawling property with two pools, an exercise room, access

Colonial styled hotel has big rooms. A the negative points are; We were shown the rooms on the ground floor which smelled damp but asked for the rooms on the 1st floor and they were spacious and confortable. The beach and the pool that you access after crossing the road are Ok

Thinking of travelling here in March, are jellyfish an issue?
I was here for 5 days didn’t see one. FYI the beach and pools are awesome

I'm only seeing this question now so my response might be too late....the hotel is directly across the road from the beach but don't be put off by this, there is a guard at the roadside who stops traffic to let you across. The pool area is gorgeous with a bar and they also provide loungers and hammocks on the beach. To be honest though, it looks beautiful but the seabed rises and falls all over the place so we weren't enticed to go for a swim.

Sorry 😐 I cannot answer this as I stayed in standard room. No idea of location. But hotel is just across the road to Lamai Beach 🏖. It is just near the Lamai Beach. Two or three minutes walk. I loved it. Lamai Beach 🏖 is very beautiful. Water line reassurance is on the Lamai 🏖.

It is very busy, but 24/7 security staff are very helpful in stopping the traffic for you.
