Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time on the island. It was a pleasure to stay at the Hilton Resort, the service was top-notch all around (the friendly clerks, concierge, wait staff, etc.). We were able to explore the island in its entirety in just 6 days with never a dull moment. Thank you, Jutikadevi, and expect us back soon!

More than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

The resort was absolutely beautiful and more than we expected from the listing online. The first evening we arrived, we were treated to complimentary mai tais and a hula show near the pool. The resort also offered various classes and workshops, including complimentary yoga, sunrise activities, kids activities and complimentary scuba/snorkel activities in the pool. The facilities were beautiful, including the pool area, hot tub, landscaping, lobby, and more.

There was a great little souvenir gift shop that also had a full espresso bar/coffee shop, which took care of my morning caffeine fix. The ocean is a very short distance away, which made mornings spectacular.

Absolutely wonderful location and resort. The room was cozy, had two mini fridges, large and beautiful bathroom, plenty of outlets, towels, beauty products and more. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

Comfortable room in a great resort

  • 5 of 5

Room is as shown - 2 double beds and not a lot of extra space. That said, the room was well appointed for its size. 2 small fridges, a coffee maker, a toaster oven, and basic set of dishes/utensils, make it a perfect home base. We were able to make our own breakfasts and pack lunches for excursions. Balcony overlooked a roof so was not amazing but at least there was a balcony. Natur’s Gate and Aveda products in the bathroom were a nice touch. Checkin and checkout was simple.

We loved our stay at this place. The room was clean and comfortable plus the owner purchased us a baby crib to use and lent it to us to stay elsewhere! The kindness and generosity of the owner and her manager Julie made everything so easy. Then on top of this the resort itself is 5 star food, swimming pools and service. Watching the sun set round the fire pit drinking happy hour Margaritas after swimming in the pool was one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you so much for having us.

My granddaughter and I stayed at the resort in March of 2015. It was the very best vacation ever! I want to come back and stay longer next time. 2 weeks wasn't enough of this beautiful place. We rented a car for a few days to check out other parts of the island. Easy to get around with very friendly locals. The beaches are unbelievably clean and beautiful. I can't wait to visit again!

This is a 4 to 5 star hotel.

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful hotel. Nice pool. There are two twin beds. This room was actually not cleaned upon arrival. We were placed in another room and moved into the correct room the following day. This was a minor inconvenience. The owner of the room more than made up for this by generously stocking the fridge with a large assortment of ice tea, bottled water, chocolates, cookies. We were impressed. We would stay with this vrbo again. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and reasonable. We received $5 off coupons upon check in. Weight room was good for a hotel. Dumb bells up to 55lbs, elliptical, stair climbers, treadmills, and some other equipment.

Owner's Response: Kelly, Thank you for your review. Very sorry about the delay in getting you to the right room. Recently I had my long term cleaners move back to Oregon, and did not have the right replacements initially, I have since replaced this cleaner with new personnel, to ensure that These kinds of things never happen again. I made sure to tell them, to keep the room as immaculate as possible, and that rooms needs to be cleaned by 3pm, on every checkout. Thank you very much for your patience, during your stay. Appreciate it very much.
