This is one of the more outstanding locations of the coastal southern regions. It boasts seven golf courses, five of them open to the public. The general harmony and peace of the resort is exceptional and the staff are super friendly and helpful.
We stayed in a 'villa' which is effectively one floor of an apartment building. The place itself was pretty spacious with a bedroom, kitchen, lounge, dining area, bathroom and outside balcony big enough to seat six for a meal. Everything worked well and all I would say is that it felt a little dated and needed some modernizing but for the price in late October, it was fine.
Street lighting at night is lacking and I felt more than a little nervous driving on the island at night when off the main arterial road. Many of the restaurants were closed however, either because they were seasonal or open on 'holidays' or just two nights a week so that made the choice pretty slim - it was either go to the high priced Ocean Room or go to a golf club bar, neither of which we wanted.
My daughter was staying in a different villa with her university golf team (they were playing an intercollegiate event at Turtle Point on the island) and all of the girls in the team complained of cockroaches in their particular villa although we had no similar complaints in our place.
Overall opinion though, tranquil setting backed by that wonderful southern charm!
