    Great people, sadly still recovering from Irma

    This was our first visit to SXM since the devastation of Irma. So saddening to see the devastation but very heartening to see the islanders working hard to reestablish themselves. Esmeralda needs help with landscaping and beautifying the facilities and is obviously still in renovation mode. The staff is friendly and eager to please. Breakfast here was wonderful as always. Best of luck to all as you continue to work on getting this beautiful island back to its former glory.

    • Liked: Cleanliness

    Its an excellent location resort with friendly staff, but we are upset we were not told not to use water for drinking, etc upon our arrival. The notice about that was face down on the reception desk, they showed it to us only when we asked about why there is no warning anywhere to be found. We saw this displayed at a different resort. This negligence places tourists’ health in danger. There were couples with kids in resort, not sure if they even knew of the problem

    This property is ideal for a vacation with extended family. Loved the private pool for each casita. I traveled in August during their low peak season and It was quiet and relaxing, exactly what I needed. I wish they offered a hot breakfast package, but other than that I had a fabulous time.
