My wife and I stayed in this hotel for five nights this past February and upon booking with sunwing we were assured this was an all inclusive trip but when we got there things took a turn for the worse...
First of all this hotel is NOT set on the beach so you're gonna have to travel outside the resort to get there... like 15 mins driving...to top that off we were told upon check-in that you gotta pay $20US per person, per day to go the the beach which is posted in their brochure and nothing is included (approx.$150US for a basic lunch) or you can go to the "all incl. public beach" where you will find a restaurant owed by the hotel and get the same food as at the hotel. Which means that the "all inclusive" menu for your whole stay includes a choice of the same four meals and beer everyday and most of the time they are out of this and that...So again, you gotta fork out more money to order drinks and whatever meals you thought you were paying for when you thought you booked "all-incl."
There is absolutely NOTHING to do unless you're really into golf and you do that daily at an extra cost of course...
There is no entertainment, no music and nowhere to go...
The rooms are beautiful, clean and beds are super comfortable (best in the caribbean). We did find a massive roach crawling out of the bathroom last day of our stay, but ... that's the tropics..
The staff at the bar and restaurant are great!! Super friendly, accomodating and personable, they go above and beyond, so if you go tip them lots!!
Concierge staff kinda snooty..
All in all, if you're over 50 and borring or work on Wall Street and need to disapear off the grit for a while to do absolutely nothing it may be a great place for you. My wife and I are in our 30's and get along great together but this was the most expensive and borring vacation ever!!!!!!!!!!
We will NEVER return to Golden Bear Lodge...
