This hotel is fantastic. As a travel agent I would highly reccomment this hotel to my clients. The lobby area is chic and the big glass windows over look out on to the ocean and the tower isle. The 2 alacart restaurants Eight Rivers and Bayside need reservations. Only time you can book are 7.00 7.30 and 8 (i believe) I do usually like to eat around 8.30 - 9pm but no real issue. Patio is buffett with a small alacart menu at lunch and evening. Breakfast usual caribbean all inclusive, made to order eggs, pancakes fresh fruit etc. Champagne also on offer, loved it! The Verandah is a lovely looking restaurant but we never ate there. Lots of fish on the menu and my other half doesnt eat fish. The pool areas are very well kept and spotless clean. The bed covers float so can take these in the sea and pool with you.... amazing! never seem these before. The snack bar around the pool is very good quailty food and quick serving.
the staff are amazing! the only staff that let the team down were the reception staff, who could be a little short with you. the staff where you book meals/excursions are fab too.
The rooms are a little dated for the resort. bathrooms are lovely however the shower has no power what so ever. Didnt have the flooding problem I have erad in many reviews as the shower wasnt powerful enough. great mini bar always stocked up and good working aircon. the bottles put in your room for you, are a lovely touch and you get to take these home. the bottles is to use at the gym or bring water back to your room. No leakages and good to take on trips with you. The free excursions are fab, dunns river is a must. we didnt take a waterproof camera but did purchase the pic the dunns river staff take at only $8. The restrooms in public areas are spotless clean and look new. Even the pool restrooms are spotless all day and again look brand new!
The tower isle is only for nudests. you cant even go for a visit if your not a nudest. such a shame as there is a look out tower on there that my other half really wanted to go to look at. Pool towels are available at little baskets around the pool and are very thick and long. It does seem to get a lot of repeat customer does the tower isle and i can really see why. My only bug was my room view. We had a garden view room and I looked straight on to the road....The rodf down from the main road to the hotel is only small and at the top you could see the main road and all cars zooming past. Didnt really use the balcony of my room becuase of this. The little road into the hotel is only short so could hear car noise as well as see them. Over all 4*PLUS!
