We stayed in a lagoon cottage and loved it. Waking up in the morning and jumping in for a swim was a big highlight.
I was a really big fan of the fact that there are only a certain number of people here at a given time. The garbage places lile sandals where there are close to 1,000 people all fighting for food and beach space and acting like drunk fools....none of that here.
Ran into Chris Blackwell while we were here but didn't want to bother him as he seemed busy.
Food was good, especially loved the club sandwich for lunch.
My only "complaint" is I wish the menu for dinner was a little more broad but I always found something to eat.
