Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
STOP, STOP, STOP – READ THIS FIRST! Before you book please read - Upon arrive at the place…
Upon arrive at the place…
Air-conditioning – ONLY the bedroom has air-conditioning which you are told cannot go below 74 degrees, the main house there is NO air-conditioning at all. NO where in his AD does it say this. It’s was 90 degrees there and only room where you can be comfortable is the Bedroom with NO TV in it.
Mosquitoes – the place was infested with them. When I asked about why there where so many mosquitoes I was told Ben sprays for them every day at 6pm at night. My wife got over 50 bites on first night. There were also Cockroaches in the place and my wife is allergic to them. This is un-acceptable as they were all inside the house, but there was nothing we could do about it. I wanted to put pictures up be they are not allowed in reviews.
Beachfront property – the property is listed as beachfront but it is not. You have to walk down a big steep treacherous path over a ¼ mile to get to the beach. This path is cover with rocks, branches and you can easily get hurt very bad. At the end of the path there are security guards as this is the hotel Royalton beach resort. I have a video of this but not allow to post it.
HOTTUBE – We had a COLD hot-tube with no heat and also with branches, leaf’s and bugs always falling into it. Then I was told I could have a hot-tube if I wanted to pay $25.00 dollars per day.
Dogs – they have two dogs on the property that are always in the walk way. They are friendly dogs but you better be watching your feet or you will trip on them.
Internet – Did not work when we got there, but after a few hours Ben got it working. But it was not good internet and you could not go far away from the main router if you want to use the internet.
After the night my wife being bit alive by Mosquitoes, I asked the owner for a refund as we could not stay where my wife was being eaten alive by Mosquitoes and having Cockroaches inside the house, and on top of that sweating to death in a hotbox of a main room. The owners said some really nasty words to my wife which I will not repeat here, then screaming at us that it was our problem and we rented the place so we were stuck there. So I could not let my wife stay in this Mosquitoes infested place with no air. I had to pay 3 times the price to rent a place at the Royalton so my wife would be comfortable.
Receipt that I paid $2, 606.00 to stay at the Royalton Hotel because I could not stay there. Again I have pictures but cannot post them
Hope this helps you.
First, I suggest to all who are considering our Beachfront Vacation Rental, to familiarized themselves with the description posted of our property, befor booking. This is not an All Inclusive Resort, This is a Vacation Rental.
We have had the privilege over the past 12 years, of hosting hundreds of visitors to our Beachfront Vacation Properties. We’ve never experience a dishonest visitor like Ralph.
Basically the clients learnt immediately on arrival, of a Special Introductory offer 50% to 70% discounts, The Royalton All Inclusive Resort was promoting. This resort is 100 yards from my property.
The clients decided to vacate our vacation rental and take advantage of this Special at The Royalton Resort. They threaten to post negative reviews of my property if we did not give them a refund. We made it very clear to Ralph we would not negotiate with him under such threats.
I would not recommend Ralph to stay ant any Vacation Rental.
Secluded with great views!
Our group of four enjoyed our stay, Chris and Niah were extremely helpful throughout our stay with area recommendations, transportation, car rental (very helpful), food shopping, laundry and even cooking a meal. Having contractors show up and work with power tools the last two days of our stay was not expected or appreciated. That was never discussed prior to or during our stay until they showed up!
Gina Villa review (downstairs 2 bdrm Beachfront Cottage unit)
The Beachfront Cottage is situated on a hill overlooking Smugglers Bay with Martinique in the background. Our unit had two bedrooms, two bath, kitchen and living room. Outside was the beautiful balcony overlooking the incredible ocean view. Although not particularly "high end" the unit was very comfortable and functional. Its strengths are its charm, location, and incredible service of the hosts who reside nearby. Should one wish to go with a large group, Gina Villa is able to accommodate 20+ people over their three units. Apart from some breakfasts and daily morning coffees, we ate out every night but one. Our hosts prepared a delicious traditional St Lucian home cooked meal which we highly recommend! Our hosts were also very knowledgeable of the island and directing us to must dos. Overall, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly and are considering to come back with extended family.
