We just returned from here and after reading some reviews I was a little concerned,but it was a great 5 days. The shuttle ride is is interesting as you pass thru several towns and probably stop at a bar for a red stripe! The food was good. I was really surprised by the quality of snorkeling just off the beach. If you can swim out to the island it is even better....but really it was great right of the beach.. Bring your own gear and you will be glad you did. The pool bar is fun and lots of seats around.. We did the catamaran to Ricks Place thru the scuba center. Worth it for sure! Also the beach to walk on is great...we walked every day, takes about 45 minutes to go down and back and you pass about 5 other hotels. This hotel is at the end of the beach, so there are less walkers. we felt safe the whole time. our room was clean...not pampering with fancy sheets and stuff, but just fine. Plenty of beer in my fridge and I never used the bottles of booze they have on the wall. It is not 5 star but they do not say they are...a real strong 3 star. Unless you really expect pampering and awesome , you will like it here....but then you know you pay a lot more for it too! We were in the far end of building 2, but if you are a good walker maybe even a further building would be better.
