What a wonderful resort! Service was better than excellent. Management was never better. Very accommodating and makes everyone feel special. My hats off to Matthew Cornall. He is a warm, friendly and wonderful manager.
The grounds here are incredible. It's two fabulous resorts in one. Caribbean side is older, yet extremely charming. Very quiet and private areas, and some with direct access to the beach. Most of the action at night was at the Caribbean square. Great entertainment. A lively gathering area.
The newer, Mediterranean area is quite beautiful. Balconies are small, but the extra large marble bathroom areas certainly make up for that.
Favorite restaurant was Elaine's Caribbean. Fresh seafood and lobster in season.
Barefoot by the Sea offered great atmosphere at night for dinner, which was also quite good.
The sushi restaurant was better than excellent.
Downfall here is trying to get a lounge chair at the main pool.
All in all, a great resort on a beautiful island. Can't wait to return to this little piece of heaven, right here in the Caribbean.
