      Located near the airport ($15 cab ride for a 5 minute ride, yes a ripoff but taxis here are expensive). I didnt hear much airport noise though, a little during the morning and day but not while trying to sleep thankfully. Noise was mostly from jets taking off rather than landing. But not an issue overall. The ride to Stuart Cove was 15-20 minutes from the hotel. An advantage of staying on the west side of the island is youre the last to be picked up and the first to be dropped off from the dive van; meaning you can be dropped off and showered and out the door by the time those staying on the east side of the island are dropped off. The Jitney ride into town was about 20-30 minutes depending on drop off location; cost $2. Taxi to downtown cost me $40. There is technically a beach just down the road but its more rock than sand, so not a place you would want to spend any time. The hotel provides beach/pool towels. That walk up the stairs from the road would be a bad one if carrying heavy luggage (I had dive gear) but there was someone to meet me upon arrival to assist with the bags. The view is nice from the hotel since its on a hill above the rest of the island. The service from the staff is good and very friendly. The WiFi worked great for general internet, email, apps usage. The entire place was very clean. The bed was decently comfortable. The breakfast officially starts at 7am, but youre on island time so its really more like 7:15. Continental is included but cooked food was an extra $18. The continental was bread, English muffins, bagels, yogurt, some fruit, OJ, coffee. The architecture looked great. Balconies surrounded the rooms on each floor and had chairs on them to enjoy the weather outside. There were a few restaurants nearby in walking distance. There was shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided in dispensers in the shower. Hot water was limited though so a quick shower is needed. There is a pool but I didnt go in since was cloudy/rainy when I was there. But it appeared to be clean. The one problem I had with the place was the smell on the 2nd and 3rd floors. It smelled of musty/dusty attic. It wasnt noticeable on the first floor, it was on the second and really smelly on the third. Probably a combination of cleaning products, humid wood and not much circulation. It didnt trigger my allergies luckily (which that smell normally would). I opened my windows in the morning to circulate fresh air in the room so it wasnt too noticeable in there. I did mention it to one of the employees and did appear to make an attempt by leaving the doors open but ultimately it didnt have an affect on the smell. I hope they can figure out a way to address that smell (without chemicals) because its a great hotel otherwise.

      Stayed here for 5 days. Friendly, relaxing, peaceful hotel with amazing sea views. Comfortable room with aircon and fan. Light and airy. Breakfast is continental with great granola, cake and fruit. Small attractive pool. Afternoon/early evening snacks offered however whenever we tried to order, they weren't available, the chef was either running late or having a couple of days off. Not a problem as there are several restaurants nearby, we particularly liked The Studio. There is an honesty bar and complimentary teas, coffee and water available. Would definitely recommend. Be aware that there are quite a few steps to get up to the hotel.

      This is absolutely not one of the many identical cookie-cutter hotels found elsewhere on the island. The building itself is a beautiful, colonial style house on top of a hill with great views over the ocean from some of the rooms and the terrace where breakfast is served. A small pool at the back and wraparound balconies give good views in every direction, and our room was well-equipped, cool and comfortable. Not sure how accessible it is for wheelchair users but the place has real character. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. The breakfast is continental buffet style with a good range of food including bagels, yoghurts, cereals, cheese, fruits and cake. Hot dishes incur a charge, but we ate well every morning and never felt we needed to order anything extra. Tea and coffee are free and available all day. We got the impression that they're not so much of an 'evening meal' kind of place, having only a limited menu, but staff were happy to point us towards the reasonable number of restaurants close by (5 minute walk) or order us pizza. Top tip is to have cash, as some places don't accept card and there are no ATMs close by. We loved the location: its only a $15 taxi ride from the airport, but aircraft noise isn't an issue. As the name suggests, it's close to the beach and there are beaches within walking distance where you can get a drink and a sunbed (Love Beach the standout example: good snorkelling, cheap sunbeds, not too busy and a bar with wifi - what more could you want!?). It's a 20-30 minute bus ride into town. Buses are cheap and regular, and the journey is along the coast so gives some excellent views. Just say your destination as you get on, pay as you get off and shout 'bus stop' when you want it to stop. If you're looking for something with charm and character, slightly off the beaten track, then we can't recommend this hotel highly enough. We'll certainly return.
