Thank you Islander Resort!
I can not commend the staff enough for what they did for me on my wedding day! They accommodated our every need, made sure everything was perfect and even sent us a bottle of wine and flowers from my hubby! They went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and went the full 150%!!! I can not thank everyone enough for their amazing service and excellent kind nature!!! I will definitely be staying at Islander Resort again! Thank you everyone!!!

Good Location and Value but Really Needs Cleaning/Upgrade
We travel all the time and aren't very picky but our whole floor was a mess, I can only guess that they are renovating place (we didn't see any work nor any cleaning in the time we were there) concrete and powder dust everywhere it looked like a construction site. If they had finished, I don't understand why not clean up. The queen bed was extremely hard and felt like the springs were poping out. It is very dated and so its great if it is being upgrade price and location was great

Was all underconstruction, no swimming pool or tennis courts as shown on agoda... The cutlery was filthy and the glasses were still dirty... The lifts were disgusting with all sticky stuff up the walls... Defiantly down the bottom of the scales compared to all the hotels I have stayed at...
