We stayed for one week prior to Christmas in 2013 and purchased an all inclusive package. The resort was beautiful - clean, nicely equiped rooms, lovely pools and a private beach. The food was delicious - I believe the week we stayed was the first week that an all inclusive option was offered. There were three restaurants to choose from.... More

This is a beautiful, well maintained resort with great staff, relaxing white sand beach, picturesque golf course and an amazing restaurant. It's a bit out of the way at the end of the island but worth the drive. 5 stars resort.
