Very good for kids. Amazing kids club and excellent swimming pools. Location is perfect and beach is right on your doorstep. Its being closed for renovation so hopefully it would make it that edge better:)

The beach is clean and beautiful; perfect for our little ones who had a blast looking at the transparent fish that swam up close to the shore! We spent 7 gorgeous days relaxing on the white sandy beach, blue sky and amazing turquoise water.

Perfect place to relax. Plenty of sun beds, shaded areas, clean sandy beach and beautifully calm waters. Very calming and pleasant experience. I agree that the Negril beaches are perhaps more impressive but I found this beach to be enjoyable

This beach was so/so....nothing like the wonderful Negril beach. We enjoyed our visit but this beach was just a bay rather than the actual ocean. The water wasn't very deap before you got to the ropes the resort put out. I hear this resort is changing hands and will be a Moon Palace next year. If they remove the rocks... More
