there are a lot of amenities on these beaches with watersports, food, etc, but it is more crowded as the highrise buildings have a big population. If you're not in the hotels, you can't get a chair or tikki hut so if you sit on sand you will be blasted by the continual wind.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the beach. Our 10 and13 year old granddaughters found a plethora to things to do. The beach is beautiful and water absolutely amazing. One of the best places we have visited.

Lot of people, very commercial. Not the best beach by far. The only positive thing is it's really close to hotels. Anything else

They have all of the high rise hotels, restaurants, bars, beach toys and sunset cruises, but this all adds up to a LOT of people. If you like your beaches uncluttered by people and trash, you might go elsewhere.

We stayed at Marriott so this was the beach connected to the hotel. Just jump in and go for a swim. If you want shade go to the towel desk the first day you get there and reserve for days in advance otherwise, in peak season they will be none available.

Great place to vacation - lots to do for adults and kids - weather could not have been better and the water is warm and smooth for ocean swimming and snorkeling.

A great beach for young people but we found that everyone huddled in the shade of a divi tree so basically the view was the lounge in front of you. And there were a lot of people looking for shade. Beautiful beach but very busy.

Beach is beautiful but a bit overcrowded. It is occupied by all of the high rise hotels which is why there are so many people. Water is calm, with a bit of seaweed
