Response from the owner I am truly surprised that you gave us a 4 star review. It sounds like you had a great time in The Black Pearl. The entire bungalow was remodeled last year. It is our home when we are there and we are extremely proud of the value we offer for the price. To find anything near the quality of The Black Pearl you would need to pay thousands of dollars a day. The cleaning was taken care of by Nir our manager when you mentioned it. I have already requested he buy a new blender. There are large towels in the bungalow. We don't like to spray too often for bugs and because you are in the tropics, that is hard to control, but we do out best. You failed to mention that you used your points with Euro-car and that is why you received that rate. Nir has three late model cars for our clients only and offers the lowest rates on the island. I, as owner have nothing to do with the rental cars. Again, I am sorry you felt the need to give us 4 stars instead of 5, I truly believe it was unwarranted.
