Friends and family be warned to never stay at this accommodation. Their pictures via the website are 100% misleading. This place and facilities are run down, the staff are inhumane and inconsiderate. They gave us dingy towels and then accused us of staining them and threatened to charge to clean them.
It is for this reason they insist on 50%+ deposit so when you arrive there they already have half your vacation spending in their bank account and a refund is out of the question. See my pics and consider yourself warned.
I insist trip advisor to downgrade this rating to terrible. It bought tears to
my eyes that I had my family booked there and we couldn't get a refund to go elsewhere.

3 friends and I rented the loft apartment for 5 days and enjoyed a lovely stay with extremely friendly and helpful staff! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable and affordable vacation in a great area; close to groceries and liming hotspots :)

Perfect location to walk to everything. Beaches are close by. Great place to stay if diving. I had a kitchen which was just right for 5 days of lightly prepared meals, although there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, including a new breakfast cafe onsite. My bathroom was nice and newly renovated and the bed was very comfortable but the service was the best part as Carolyn and Jade were always accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

I stay at Bananaquit for 4 days for Jazz Festival, the location was perfect, but everything else was not good, no staff on hand after 5pm, everyone there was from out of town,you had no security no one to call in an emergency. i was not told about a $300 deposit until after i made my reservations. i was told check-in was 2pm, but if i got there early and my room was available i could got to my room, i was not told to occupy that room prior to 2 pm would cost $25.00 and hour. cooking was another problem,call it a room, not an apartment. the so call kitchen would take you back to 1950, am 65yrs old and did not know how to used the utilities they provided. love the location, but would not stay their again.
