A beautiful location on the beach where turtles come up to lay their eggs at certain times of the year and we were lucky to witness this...once you slow down to Caribbean time all is hunky dory.
Food is Ok without being fabulous.. suited us fine plenty of fish and vegetables but lots of meat dishes too for the carnivorous, drinks under the all inclusive package are what you would expect ...passable. Rooms are comfortable and reasonably well equipped with hairdryers and t.v (although ours did not work) but we came to relax and read so no big deal. Service was Ok and mostly with a smile...
We hired a car for two days and explored the island and enjoyed our time doing so, in fact we were more than amazed at how much rain forest and wilderness there was. Englishman's bay and Parlatuvier bay were two of our favourites.
Only negative was being hassled to buy trips by so called tour guides from the beach but after a week and they realised you were not new ..that eased off.....my wife was physically hassled by one chap on a walk we had along the beach to Plymouth(which was not worth doing) but I don't think the chap was quite the ticket and was just trying to sell mangoes initially but then crossed a line.....at home we would have made a bigger deal of it...we let him know in no uncertain terms he was out of order and stunned he stood still and left us alone...overall I don't think there is a massive safety issue as long as you are sensible and keep your wits about you...there are security staff around the hotel but I am not sure they influence too much as they are pretty paid back too! Did we have a good time YES! Would we rush back No!
