“Will be great when finished”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2008

This is difficult to write as the property is / will be fantastic, however it is no where near finished.
The plus points are the rooms, we had a 2 bed, 2nd floor apartment which was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and really tried their best for you. We were near the beach which was a real plus.
However the place was basicly a building site. There was a dirt track, which they called a road for us to use to drive to our room. It was so bad that the first hire car we had could not cope with it and we had to change it for a 4x4. They only had one restaurant open, even though on the website it said they had two. They closed the Spa for 3 days during our stay, no notice or warning given. There was no Water Taxi available and the Speed boat had been out of action for weeks, with no sign of being repaired.
Numerous items were not available, which in the end became irritating.
However in the end, just the general noise level became a real pain. There is major construction work going on and it is all around the property. The beach is lovely and was the only place you could escape the noise, until they sent a JCB over to start extension work on the harbour wall.
The management admitted that construction was taking priority, which was honest but did not really help us.
I would consider going back, but it will be quite a while before they finish the building work and therefore you must expect a level of disruption. We are fairly used to construction work, having stayed in Dubai several times, but this was just too much.
Overall it is a great location, the rooms are excellent and it will very good, but it just is not ready.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2008

My boyfriend and I work in Trinidad, but live in Houston, Texas and needed sometime to recharge and just get away. I did alot of research on this place and read all the reviews. So I was a little skeptical. We were there from Nov.27-Dec.1.

The day we checked in we had arranged 2 full body massages in our room awesome they were great. They are now open everyday the spa is.
Our room was 232 one of the best rooms in the entire place they said. It was the highest floor with a Plunge and a great view of the islands and water.

Friday nights they have what they call a fish festival if you like to party a little bit and love sea food go. We had the sec. biggest lobster people where coming to the table taking pictures, than the driver to us to Gro-let which is near the hotel with nothing but a street party with DJ (of course this is all your choice). That friday morning we did the zipline & tram adventure, which hotel arranges everything for you it's cheaper going through the hotel. They treat you so well. We were waited on hand and foot the whole time. We got picked up in a BMW at the airport. We didn't rent a car we just used a driver which wasn't much money at all. The hotel has discount prices with other companies. If you are down to earth ask for Leon he knows all the good places and make ssure you have the best of everything. We took him to lunch our last day, because he was so good to us and we requested him as our driver. We got to ride in a RangeRove as well. They have all water sports there at the place. Only one place to eat, okay food not much of a selection. Down the road though is Rodeny Bay there are several places to eat. We had Ti food one night it was excellent. We didn't want to leave. You will be feeling like kings and queens being here. Everyone is so nice and so helpful. We had breakfast sent to our room every morning and ate on the balcony for the view whichis breath taking. There is construction going on right now, because they are adding to the place, but if you get the beach front view it won't even phase you, just keep an open mind about it. The mosqito weren't that bad at all. When you get in the room there will be books that you can look at to decide what you want to do. I just can't say enough about this place it was amazing and how we were treated. You can use the online grocery shopping, but it's very limited. Just take the shuttle and go to the little grocery store there. They do have washer and dryers you have to provide your own soap to wash clothes and dishes other than that your good. If your looking to party this hotel isn't the place, but they will take you where the party is at. It is quiet and romantic getway. Good way to regroup with your relationship. If you have a group of family they do have 3 bedrooms ours was a standard 2 bedroom with 3 1/2 baths. The pictures you see on the site is exactly what it looks like . You won't be sorry at this place. At the fish festival that we went to again only on Friday nights we met the general manager sweetest guy and down to earth. O yea, try the spicy rum you'll be amazed, i'll leave that one at that. The rums are good to. The other tour we did was the Land and sea you see the Pitons, Volcano & take a boat back to where your driver will pick you up and take you back to the hotel. You get a beauitful sunset.
