We stayed one day and night before our flight back to California. We had a great ocean view, and our room was nice. The bar at the pool was nice with a very friendly staff. The only negatives were for a Beach Resort, there was very little accessable beach, and getting to the ocean was very difficult and dangerous (bad... More

I stayed here for one night while my wife was off playing bridesmaid. The room was excellent and the pool area was nice but crowded. The food and drink was quite expensive so I went out to a nearby food truck for dinner. The buffet breakfast was limited but convenient. I'm not sure I agree with charging for parking and... More

We we're hear for a week at the end of August. A few things we liked: 1) The staff was very anxious to help when possible. 2) The valet service was fast and friendly. 3) the entrance is lined with ancient banyan trees. 4) The whole resort is well maintained with everything you could possibly need. 5) Sun rises are...

Very nice location (10 minutes by car to the airport). Wonderful landscape, wonderful swimming pools. On the beach (but You can't swim!!! No life guard on duty!!!). A lot of different fees: service, cleaning, parking... Free wifi only in the lobby (and it worked not very well). Approximately 15 $/day for room wifi!!!!!!!!!! We had never used the slide because...

The staff is very courteous, the food is decent, the buffet and dining is adequate (wish they had better gluten-free options) and the setting is beautiful. Nothing to do after 10 PM but that is typical for most of the island. We went here for our honeymoon and had a fabulous time. We wouldn't change a thing!
