To get to the resort don't use the hotels address in your GPS . You will be sent to the wrong place. GPS the Ritz up the hill and you will get better directions. The hotel is very clean and the food in the on site restaurants is very good. They have snorkel gear and some water toys for rental, but honestly for what they charge for renting a snorkel kit you are better off bringing one with you . The beach is RIGHT there you don't have to trek at all and they provide fresh beach towels as often as you want. Be prepared for iguanas especially around the pool. They love to sunbathe too! They mostly ignore the humans so don't worry.
Our only "complaint" is the room while clean was not as pretty as the rooms pictured on the website and the kitchen was not well equipped. Now in the hotel's defense most people don't come to a resort to cook their own meals. But we travel as a family on a budget and eating out 3 times a day for 4 people for 7 days just was not affordable. The grocery store was pretty close and easy to find. (but expect to pay double to triple for everything vs your at home grocery pricing)
the wifi however was terrible for us. the island seems to support AT&T more and there is still a pretty poor signal most of the time. This kept the kids off facebook for a week though so that was not exactly horrible to us parents.
Best thing...the beds! Loved the mattress and pillows. I actually slept well every night!
