This was the absolute perfect honeymoon! The service, cleanliness, activities and food were all impeccable. Total privacy when we felt like it. Make sure you go all out and pay for the all-inclusive package as it includes all you can eat food and alcoholic beverages...including cocktails - totally worth it!!!!! The only bad thing is that it had to end!

I have not much to add to other reviews really. Let me just highlight some items pointwise; Room: We were in a beach pool villa on the sunset side of the Island. Most of the time on this side of the Island there was a nice breeze, which makes the heat bearable. On the other side of the Island it... More
