This resort hosted my honeymoon and best vacation ever! I have been to many resorts in Caribbean and Jamaica. There are always little kinks in the service which marginalize the overall experience. From arriving at the resort to leaving on last day the service was exceptional! All the attention to detail really made the difference.
When we first arrived we were greeted promptly and given hot wash clothes, Mai tais, and tea to refresh after a long flight. We were graciously upgraded to a better room in celebration of our honeymoon. Immediately upon settling the details of our stay, another staff member intercepted us, took us on tour of resort and brought us to our room. This sounds easy enough, but after staying at many resorts, NO ONE has had such a seamless introduction. There is always a delay after getting to resort and annoying choppy intro to room. Not at the Four Seasons.
The room was relatively large, very comfortable bed, nice large bathroom, and incredible view of the ocean. We sprung for the breakfast in bed package, which was slightly good deal (saving around ~$5/day) and I would likely do it again. Room service was always very prompt, courteous, and even toasted your toast in-room!
The resort itself was large, but not overwhelming. It seemed to be perfect size for week stay. We were able to cycle through the different restaurants and re-visit the favorites once. Food was amazing at all spots. I actually like the residents best with relaxed atmosphere, excellent american cuisine, and a beach front location that was fairly dreamy.
We ended up golfing and it was a VERY nice course. It was also VERY expensive, but once in a lifetime type round. There are several picturesque holes including 17 which is a par 3 towards the ocean. It is amazing view, but challenging with the wind coming off the ocean. You get free run of the facilities including driving range, putting green, and bunker. All non-booze drinks are complimentary with the round. The course is flexible with timing and I was able to golf by myself with wife caddy/driving the cart. The drink cart was seldom but SUPER friendly. He would always load us with ice and complimentary teas and Arnold Palmers with all drink orders!
As an added bonus, we were given near-nightly complimentary amenities in celebration of honeymoon. I could go on forever, but long story short, this resort has set the standard for vacation excellence! It will be hard to measure up! The service was the best I've ever had.
