On arrival we were greeted with a rum punch (always a good start). The hotel is immaculate and well located. Our room was well laid out with great views out to the pool & beach. One slight annoyance was the toilet and shower door were shared using a sliding frosted glass door (not very private) & when pulled to the toilet side did not stay shut, the bathroom does not have a door but leads directly into the bedroom.
With regard to the hotel facilities, the spa is definitely worth a visit, we had reflexology & Swedish massage which really helped us relax into our holiday.
As we arrived at the end of season the hotel was particularly quiet, not many holiday makers. It is worth noting though that this hotel is used frequently by the Virgin Atlantic cabin crew, who are particular noticeable around Happy Hour time.
The fine dining in Chic (restaurant) is good for a treat but do check that there are no events happening. The hotel often has conferences, parties and external events happening which may mean you have limited access to some of the bars/restaurants.
The surrounding bars/restaurants in Rodney Bar are worth checking out - Buzz is excellent, especially when Barman Mervyn is there. Delirius is great for late night cocktails. A hidden gem is the steak house by the shopping mall, delicious steaks & cocktails.
I would also recommend hiring a car & driver (we ordered this onsite at the Lucian hotel). A little more expensive than the organized tours but you definitely get to do a lot more & the things you would like to do.
When on the beach or eating at the beach hut, you may be approached by sellers, a polite 'No' is all that is needed and they will leave you alone.
All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday in a picture perfect location!
