It's one of those places where you want to tell people that they won't like it just so that you can keep it to yourself. It's a paradise; a playground for adults. It's quiet, peaceful and it feels like you're at a cottage somewhere back home except you're in beautiful Negril!
You get to watch some of the most beautiful sunsets and the stars at night are spectacular, relax on your own little private terrace and if you're lucky, you may even see a pack of dolphins swimming by as you're having your morning cup of joe.... but like I said... you won't like it ;)
As you will probably read in other reviews; it is not all inclusive. The staff is extremely nice and friendly but do not expect to have someone bring you breakfast in the morning. It's not that kind of place, (and it was perfectly fine by us). It is a unique experience in many ways. And just as a side note: the food at night is -phenomenal-.
I read a lot of reviews about the noise, bah! It's not that bad....Here's my advice; we asked for a stand alone fan in our room because we like sleeping with a fan back home...... it muffled the sound quite a bit... Besides we found ourselves to be so wiped from snorkeling and staying out in the sun all day that we slept like babies at night!
Anyways.. I could write a novel about that place, it was an amazing experience. We will be back again. A&G
