This hotel was recommended by our travel agent. We asked for a small, quiet, luxurious Caribbean hotel on the beach. It satisfied on all accounts. The accommodations are lovely, the food is excellent (although the service is annoyingly slow), the staff is most helpful, especially the guest relation manager. The property could use a bit of freshening up. But this also applies to the whole island. My husband and I were disappointed; the island is not lush and tropical. And the effects of a major hurricane in 1995 are still in evidence everywhere. But the people are nice everywhere, and the food is AMAZING.
