In September 2017, Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage across the island. Many places closed for rebuilding. Frommer's recommends that vacationers check in advance with all businesses before traveling.
Another beachfront property, with lush grounds and a mix of Caribbean and Art Deco style, the hotel is set on one of the area’s nicest beaches. The poolside bar is a lot of fun, and the property attracts a diverse crowd of locals along with visitors, which adds to the appeal. The Art Deco areas are the nicest, but also the most expensive; beach cabanas are more private and have better views than the standard guestrooms, which frankly, could use a bit of TLC (they’re not dirty, just well worn). The hotel’s public areas and grounds have fabulous tropical flora throughout and towering palms.
