We stayed here to attend a wedding with our two children (aged 10 and 12). The hotel is expensive but the all-inclusive is really all-inclusive so the only money we spent beyond the room rate was the taxi to and from the airport. The hotel is luxury but has a Caribbean relaxed ambience, with attentive and professional management, without being pretentious or overly ostentatious - exactly what I like! There were no vast expanses of pointless marble or snooty restaurants. Instead there was great quality service, good rooms and the best beach ever! I guess if you are looking for a quiet place to escape to for a honeymoon, this might not be the place for you as it does have a high quota of families. The flip side is that it is brilliant for families! All that said, the place never felt busy or overrun by kids and I think the hotel would be OK for everyone so long as you don't actually object to children! We had a beach suite which was great - 2 bedrooms and a big bathroom - with a terrace and steps down onto the beach with the sea about 10 yards away! The beach was perfect sand with a shallow slope outwards, so really good for the kids to play in. The restaurants were excellent and the food was of a high standard without being pretentious. The mosquitos are rather prevalent so take some good bug spray and apply liberally from evening onwards.
