Pro " The area was perfect. Close to the beach. The pool area was very tropical with banana trees and palm trees. The best part was it is adults only. Perfect for out couple get away...our vacation without kids. "
Con " The room we stayed in didn't have a fridge, which sucked a little but it wasn't too bad...we just tossed our left overs and used the ice bucket to keep our drinks cold. THE WORST PART WAS THE HUGE ROACHES!. (not in the rooms...the rooms are clean and good) The big huge roaches..water bugs..were all outside. I know it's a tropical area and the roaches love the palm trees and the pools but I'm terrified of them. Any place at SPI has those big roaches outside but I can't stand them. I couldn't stay too much in the pool or hot tub at night because there were too many of them. "

Pro " It is apparently a fairly new property built in 2016. The staff are nice and helpful. "
Con " The room we were first given wasn’t cleaned — beds were stripped and garbage can was overflowing from previous guests. Second room was ok - smaller than expected - bathroom was tiny! Shower wasn’t bad - clean curtain, but my husband found a used soap with hair on it in there. Rudely awakened to the sound of what I can only describe as furniture being moved around in adjacent units... Walls are paper thin. I just can’t wrap my head around how this motel is rated so highly overall. "
