The nachos are surprisingly good – good enough so that if you want nachos, go here. My vegetable curry and vegetarian spaghetti were not as good as other options on the island.

We went here before reading the reviews so we didn't know what to expect. When we walked in we passed several people who didn't acknowledge us - we later learned that was the staff. We took a table and someone eventually brought us a menu. We ordered and then waited, and waited, and waited some more. In the meantime we... More

The sleepboxes were very interesting! It's literally a bunk bed in a room with nothing but a window and a sliding door. The room had nice AC from 8pm-8am. Breakfast was included every morning (scrambled eggs, toast and beans and unlimited coffee). There was also free drinking water which was a plus! It's literally the first stop on the right... More

we stopped in here for brunch. was not impressed with the breakfast selection. When I asked to substitute bacon for ham I was told no. Even the service was not the greatest. Maybe the supper there is better but we never gave it a second chance since breakfast was a complete disaster as far as I was concerned.

While walking on the ocean front stopted in this Restaurant/Bar, as we had heard a lot about their coffee. It seemed to be a very popular place with younger travelers, as they have an all you can eat breakfast and dinner. Benches both inside and outside along with the beach! We ordered two Cuban coffees which were service in small... More

Meal: Marketing from their workers is convincing but not as good as it is marketed. Let's just say you get what you pay for...there are other places way better!! ! I would call it deceitful advertising at its best! They offer a meal and 3 drinks (Rum & Juice) but its more like Juice and water!!! And they do not... More

We have been here two times. One evening we just had appetizers. The waitress was pretty rude maybe because of the small Order. We waited like 30 minutes for nachos. The Second time we ordered bbq pork and the grilled shrimps with 3 sided each. The pork was good. The shrimps werent grilled but sauteed in a pan. Maybe 10... More

Service was fast, but that's about the only good thing I can think of. The roast pork was dry and the sides -- well, I can't remember what they were, so that should give you a clue. Prices were average but food was sub-par.

On the night of our visit there were only 3 other parties seated at the time we ordered, however it took an hour to get our food. I ordered grilled shrimp but got some very salty shrimp dish in a sauce with veggies. Pointless to complain partly because I was starving after the long wait and partly because the woman... More

We stayed here in one of the super budget "pods". They are genuinely pods and so should be for those on a tight budget - although warm water is a plus.
