Just visited hotel for a day trip to island. Came over for lunch, and beach. Lunch was very expensive, and ok. Service was outstanding, pleasant staff. Beach is gorgeous, and private. Pool is lovely. Bathroom by pool, has a shower which is a nice feature for people like us, who weren't staying overnight.

There is a private beach in the hotel and even some toys scattered around and the pool is right by the beach which makes life with kids easier. Also, I believe this is one of the only hotels with many aquatic options like... More

My family and I have stayed here often over the last 15 years and enjoyed our stay every time. We tried different types of rooms/suites. In April 2014, we stayed in a suite/villa right on the water's edge with a wrap around patio overlooking the water. Room service was prompt and courteous. Very friendly and helpful staff.
