This is definitely a family-friendly place, though we would happily go back as a couple. Service is truly very good, as others have noted. Small tips are well appreciated, and increase the service effort from very good to outstanding. Our 5 year old visited the kids club twice and loved it (and the kids theater at night). Food - only did the buffet, which struck me as better than average all-inclusive resort fare. Yes, the beach is not the best if you want to go swimming, due to the dead coral and rocks. Everything said about feeding the fish in the lagoon is true; this is a fun activity especially for kids.
Biggest complaint - extra charge for the in-room safe: this has never been the case anywhere I have visited in the caribbean. I took a previous poster's suggestion and carried a small lock which I used to secure a compartment of my suitcase, and never had any problems.
