Surfside Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion
Rupert Geer from U.K. visited in March 2012 and awarded
I have stayed at Surfside about 6 or 7 times with my family.
Brilliant, clean,safe appartments for people wanting a cheap caribbean holiday. They even have security on the gate.Our rooms were cleaned every day and they are basic but fine for £25-30 a night per room.I don't know a place where you can be that close to the beach etc for the price, especially if you have young ones..back from the beach, into the little pool for a dip...easy food from across the road and into bed...out with the rum on the balcony!
The people making bad comments are maybe expecting too much from a budget hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Surfside in September 2011. I booked the room based on price. It was only after that I read all the bad reviews, I was skeptical.
However, it was too late to cancel, I had already made the deposit. We went by ferry on the 5 p.m. sailing so we arrived at Surfside 8:30 p.m. Management allowed us a late check-in at no extra cost. Someone ushered us up to the room and helped bring our baggage up. There was parking in the compound so our vehicle was in-sight at all times.
The room was clean. No 5 star, but acceptable. There is housekeeping that can everday to clean and tidt the room. There is a kitchenette equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable. Cooking utensils and dishware included. There also is a Dive Shop on site.
The Hotel is close to a main road so it is not lonely. Beaches and other attractions are also close by. Generally, we had a good stay there without incident.
If you are acccustomed to higher ends hotels this may not be the place for you. Surfside is cheap t stay at and are for persons more interested in sightseeing than staying indoors.
I would stay there again, but there a better options for the same price like Crusoe's Holiday Apartments.

My husband, two kids and i stayed at the hotel last August. it was very good for the price and very cosy i must say.its really great for those who wish to go sightseeing....its not a paradise but it was more than i expected.the manager was very friendly and sought to our needs...my kids enjoyed the children's pool...they are usually scared but the pool was perfect for them.....its close to food places and to the beach....after a morning walk on the beach ...when we returned to the hotel we found that our beds were made with clean sheets and the dishes were all washed up...we were pleasantly surprised...so it was a no no to chores for me for our 4 day stay lol .....my stay was great and i will return again....keep it up ...:)

This place is a joke. we stayed for 3 nights. The a/c control did'nt work, the electric kettle cable was faulty, the whole place smelled dirty, the shower drain was blocked and we asked for extra kitchen ware. We reported these to management, nothing was done and when we asked for a discount they keeled over with laughter! AVOID SURF SIDE LIKE THE PLAGUE
