We loved the location of this resort. It was close to many restaurants and several excellent beaches. There are several places to eat, a piano bar, and a bakery. We felt safer knowing there were several manned gates throughout the whole resort. We didn't use any of the facilities or restaurants but they looked nice. The resort is lot larger than expected. I could see where you wouldn't need to leave unless you wanted to. I don't know if we stayed in the renovated section. I hope it wasn't because it seemed alittle dated. We were in the B-building. The 1 bd room was spacious, had a comfy king bed, excellent view of the ocean from the balcony, and stocked kitchen.
We rented a car and found parking to be easy. I would def recommend renting a car to go all over the island. Pelican Beach and Kim-Sha Beach are in walking distance. Both had no waves, white sand, and clear blue water. Don't bother going to the supermarket by the Burger King. It is more expensive than the one by Maho and didn't offer as big of selection.
The front desk offered good customer service. We had a few hiccups and the staff acted appropriately to assist us. I would stay here again without a doubt.
