We were pleasantly surprised by how much we liked this resort. The property was beautiful with tons of palm tree gardens. They even use coconuts as borders for there gardens which eventually sprout and begin to grow into trees. ( I had no idea that coconuts were seeds!) The resort was quieter than we are used too. The activity pool had pool volleyball and water aerobics which is a great way to cool off from the sun. The pools are smaller than most resorts and poolside seating is limited and normally reserved early before breakfast. But the beach has plenty of clean, soft sand and beach chairs. They have break walls about 100' out in the ocean that break up waves and prevent sea weed and debris from floating ashore and also leave you with pristine clear Caribbean water and spectacular snorkeling.
The staff was flawless. From the grounds crew up to the management, everyone treated you like family. Like most commercialized resorts, most of the staff was fluent in English. The bartenders quickly became your best friends. William and Abraham always had our drinks ready for us as soon as the bar opened or if they saw us getting in the pool! The entertainment staff was Excellente! Alex, Cesar, Edgar and Lu Lu were always there to entertain! Housekeeping did a wonderful job on cleaning the room and making towel animals.
We stayed in a swim up suite which had great afternoon sun. The view from the patio looked out across the pool into a garden of palm trees and flowering bushes. Not many rooms had ocean views from what I could tell except for some of the higher level premium suites.
There were quite a few choices for breakfast and dinner everyday. Only a few were open for lunch and two of those were outdoors. You only needed reservations for one restaurant ( the Gourmet Pub). The food was quite nice and we'll prepared.
So here is our list of pros and cons:
Pros: beautifully landscaped, quiet, great staff, excellent nightly entertainment, adult only, awesome beach with clear, calm waters and plenty of beach seating.
Cons: small pools, no locks for safe deposit box at time of visit, no turn down service at night, swim up rooms in shade till afternoon, limited seating by pools, no room service box in the room.
