Although we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort it could have been significantly better.
I went here with my fiancee to propose and spend a week in paradise. There were some positives such as our little kitchenette which proved invaluable for such expensive restaurants on the island, as well as our in-room washer/dryer as well as free internet and water sports stuff such as kayaks, inner-tubes, and sailboats. Additionally, the service was not bad, although it was more of a hands off resort than a do whatever they can for you type of place.
On the downside, our "oceanview" was blocked by a palm tree, although we could see the ocean if we tried hard enough from our hotel room. They try to maximize profit by placing all of their buildings on an angle to claim an ocean view. We were on the third floor so had a bit of a view. The room wreaked of smoke when we got in there from leaving the screen door open and our neighbors smoking next door coming into our room. The bedsheets and blankets were quite rough and took some getting used to but overall we did and enjoyed them after a bit. The restaurant was WAAAY overpriced and was probably the worst place we at at on the island, except for breakfast which was not bad (Pelican Bay restaurant). Also, they did not let you take out the water items if the water was even a little rough, so a couple of days which we wanted to we could not, really giving us only a couple of days to kayak in the pristine water.
Beach access was beautiful, but really the same as the rest of Grace Bay, and there really is no good snorkeling from the beach. It was nice that they had a roped off area of the water to swim in, giving a sense of security when the water was a little rough.
Overall, this resort was overpriced, like the rest of the island, but it was very quiet and there were not a lot of people which made it really nice as a couple. There were a lot of families with kids, but not to the point where the noise overpowered any sense of romance.
We would recommend only after maybe ensuring it is the best option overall for you.
