This is an up and down review.
The place is pretty modern and the adjoining rooms with washer/dryer, fridge, kitchen, great bathroom and comfortable beds were perfect. Balconies over looking the marina. Complimentary shuttle around the island which seems to always be prompt.
The place has a half way feel better a residence place and a hotel. There is a dive shop, a grocery shop (which doesn't have too much in it), a tourist clothes shop. The food outlets are split between the outside all day food and the fancy inside restaurant. Both are pretty good even it on the expensive side.
The downside we found was the place is not set up to helping the tourist out to see more of the area. There are a few trips which only run on some days and then when its changed it itinerary and didn't do what we wanted. Something as simple as popping over to Virgin Gorda was all very difficult and in the end we were offered a private charter at $700 for 3 people for the short trip to the island and back (there was a public ferry option which was a bit zigzag and again pretty costly). The resort has a shuttle boat and I would have thought assisting with providing a bit more destinations to see and do would have been a nice touch. In the end it gave you the feel of being stuck on the island (which is a shame as its not a bad place to be stuck). But at the end of our stay we did feel a relief at leaving.
The Tuesday night BBQ on the beach was good and a nice way to sample a range of food.
You are paying a lot to be here and with other places I have stayed you just get a bit more provided or available to you.
