Our room was very large and well kept. the grounds were meticulously maintained. as other reviewers noted, there is a seaweed patch on the ocean side beach but they had a team of guys raking it nonstop throughout the day. There is a nightly themed buffet, an ala carte restaurant and a fancier upscale restaurant (with an extra surcharge) plus two other casual grills - the food was good in all of them and they rotated menus throughout the week so there was a variety. There were 6-7 bars open throughout the day plus a mobile ATV bar on the beach. The staff was very attentive, a little tired looking at times, but a smile and hello warmed everybody up. There are several pools that all offer their own setting and all were clean and well maintained.
The manager, Antoine Brown, was amazing. We actually had dinner and drinks with him, he was always smiling, super friendly and on top of everything. To have this kind of personal attention from the manager of a resort this size is special service and he rightly deserves kudos.
The catamaran/snorkel ride was very nice and again the staff was great. They served food and drinks and were entertaining and informative. (Snorkeling wasn't the greatest due to poor visibility and sparse fish that day but they can't control that.) We took free sailing, windsurfing and paddle board lessons and had a lot of fun trying something new. The spa was open air overlooking the bay and the massages were excellent. The weight room had a good variety of new equipment, was clean and sufficient.
The resort is on a peninsula so geographically it is a bit isolated so if you want to explore the island you can hire a driver or rent a car.
The Bachelorette TV show finale was filmed here right before our stay which tells you something.
Overall, a very nice resort and we had a great stay, no complaints!
