The Blue Parrot 5th Avenue is nice for a budget stay. Clean, centrally located, free wifi, friendly staff. My family caught off guard, because we booked the 5th Ave Hotel last minute thinking it was the nice Blue Parrot Resort & Spa we stayed in 9yrs ago. I would recommend the 5th Ave hotel to anyone who is on a...

Note I'm rating the hotel relative to the price. Rooms are simple but clean, spacious and comfortable. Location is awesome, right in the middle of bars/restaurants/nightclubs/shops in the heart of 5th Ave. Beach is just a few mins walk. Do bring ear plugs as the nightclubs are really loud and close by. Easy checkin and checkout. Nothing fancy but price is great, so I'd definitely...

I stayed one night at the Blue Parrot. It was very conveniently located a block away from the beach, a block away from a Starbucks, and right on 5th Avenue where all the main shops are. The room was clean, someone was there to check us in and out, and it was a pleasant stay.

This is at best a two star hotel. Walk past the feet eating fish into what looks like a promising jungle hotel experience, one quickly gets that this not going to be that place. Rooms are OK, there is no lobby so speak, no elevator, no Internet, no view. Late in the night you might be awoken to the dancing...

Hard to get in extreme urgency situations. Our flight was canceled and we arrived a day later, we were charged the night we did not use. Once we arrived, there were not employees to receive you. I tried so many times to work the situation, but never received the reinbursement of the night we were overcharged.

The AC cranked great in the room. Gotta appreciate that. Wifi was a joke. Bigger problem is that the location -- while "central" -- is smack in the center of a tacky assortment of super-agressive touts, hucksters, drug dealers and the like. I mean, it's not dangerous, its just has absolutely no class. 100% tourist trap. Every night there were...

This hotel is located in the middle of all the action. Right on 5th avenue with all the restaurants and nightclubs around. If you're a light sleeper this is not the place for you!! The room was spacious and comfortable but with so much to do and see you don't spend much time there. The reception team were very friendly...

It is a basic hotel right on 5th av. where all the stores and restaurants are, and two blocks away from a great beach. The rooms are clean and the hotel itself is nice with lots of trees and plants. The bad thing is that you are very close to a street with nightclubs on it and they go until...
