Stayed here with my family during April spring break. Had originally booked a large 3-bdrm villa but was upgraded to the 4-bdrm Cotton House upon arrival. The villa was definitely spacious! More than enough room for the 6 of us. Each bedroom had its own bath. Part of the villa showed a little wear and tear (bathrooms needed to be re-grouted in parts, washing machine/dryer didn't work, coffee maker needed to be replaced, pool grating surrounding the pool needed to be replaced), but given the size of the house and how little time we spent inside, we were able to overlook this. A/C only in the bedrooms, but this villa had a separate den area with A/C downstairs that had a couch and TV. Private backyard pool area - its own gazebo in the shade. Short walk from villa to beach, pool and restaurants. Beach was not your typical Caribbean beach - darker sand, small, constant waves, tons of wind - but not many people outside of the resort used the beach, so it was nice and secluded and seemed safe. Not many panhandlers bothering you on the beach. Yes, the horses ride by occasionally, but they weren't a bother. Yes, there are a ton of kite surfers in the water but they provided some amusement for my kids to watch. Kayaks are available for use free of charge. Hotel pool is very large - with enough lane space to swim 25m laps. Marjorie's was in close proximity and a great place to grab lunch. Restaurants were so-so. The one by the beach was convenient, so the only reason we would go there. Went to Piano Piano - which was NOT worth the time nor the expense. Resort very close to Rodney Bay and Castries for for dinner.
Had a massage in the spa - masseuse was very capable. Spa was quiet and clean.
I would return to the resort with my family. Tons of room available for the price. Staff very friendly. Only complaint was that it never seemed like the concierge made our dinner reservations although we were told we had them. None of the restaurants were aware of our reservations. Luckily, we were able to be seated everywhere we went.
