No doubt that the hotel is great. All facilities are good, but the view of the bay at night is unique. The beach is very nice and the view from the elevator to the beach is wonderful. It is a place to return for another holiday. Thing to improve for the management: the restroom was equipped with a jacuzzi, but... More

I don't know if I will call it a regret, but we only stayed 7 days and I think we should have booked for more! Total relaxation - it was too cool. It was my first time with an all inclusive resort - and it took some getting use to in not taking my wallet every where! Now I probably... More

After choosing the hotel with my partner we were in two minds at the beginning because of the three hour coach ride to the complex considering we were on a flight from the uk for around 9hrs! But what can I say, the hotel and the area was worth every second of the wait, the hotel was impeccable in every... More

Just returned after a 2 weeks staying at the GBP with my wife. Had a fantastic time, food was very good, staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. We were there mainly for the whale watching. We had fantastic views from our room (436) of the bay and the town. Our only gripe is the high charge for the safe, $4... More

We stayed in a Villa just outside of main entrance was beautiful accommodation. 53 steps to get to Villa no cart access, we were on top of the hill. Our bags were brought up and down when we left. Guards were posted all night and we saw many in pairs. It... More

First of all, if you're a group of younger people and looking to have a lot of fun, choose another resort! We were a group of 20 year old women visiting this resort on our reading week and we were by far the youngest people at the resort (the majority of the rest of the visitors were aged 65+ and...
