“The place we stayed was nice but it was not a 5 star, we had a broken wardrobe and cockroaches in our bathroom. To get to the outside shower you had to go into the property which in my opinion defeats the purpose of an outside shower. Also it was obvious the place had been hit by a hurricane and it was not 100% up and running although we had been guaranteed this. Overall a disappointing honeymoon.”
