We recently returned from our first stay at N Resort. I have to say that we had a really good time, I wish that I could say great but there are a few issues that keep me from saying that. I wish I could I would give them 3 ½ stars, for the price we paid it was not what we would consider 4 stars. During our stay the occupancy varied from 6 to 14 couples. For the most part we were happy with the services provided by the resort with so few guests.
The room was great, plenty of room and very clean, the bed was comfortable, air conditioner worked well and was quite. We got good TV reception. The view from the spacious balcony was fantastic. We were not bothered by noise from the other guests, I think that most people try to keep the noise down since they know that walls are thin, and that if you are on a ground floor room your ceiling is the floor for those upstairs. The bathrooms are basic, plenty of towels, no real problems except for the lack of hot water at times in the shower. I had no problem with the occasional cool shower.
The grounds were beautiful with lots of foliage that was kept well trim. The only areas that seemed to lack upkeep were the fish and turtle ponds. There were 3 horses on the property in a stable area behind the tennis courts though not really neglected it did seem like they deserved better care. Every day my wife enjoyed bringing them treats after breakfast. It seemed like there was constant work being done on the property but there are areas that need more that a coat of paint, mainly the entrances to the beach and the area of pavers near the main restaurant.
The pool and slide is the best feature of this resort. The pool is large and kept clean and the waterslide is a blast! (Tip; try not to be the first one down the slide, when the sides are dry it is not the most pleasant ride). They have a swim up bar behind the slide that we enjoyed when we wanted to get some shade in the afternoon. The only real downer for us this trip was that all three Jacuzzis were out of operation for the first couple of days, some guests complained that none work for their entire 11 day stay. On the day we were leaving they got a second one operating. I know that stuff happens but 11 days with none of them working is hard to overlook. With the low occupancy there was no problem finding shade for those who might have had too much sun, at a higher level occupancy shade would be at a premium.
I found the food very good but my wife was disappointed. I found breakfast to be very satisfying, but I am happy with basic bacon and eggs. While my wife wished that they had a better selection of food at the buffet area. The same with lunch, I was happy with what was offered, ether the daily specials or a burger from the grill, my wife just had a hard time finding something that she liked, she mostly settled for a burger or a wrap. I found the dinners to be really good, especially the buffets the only complaint is that they serve so much pasta dishes and we really don’t care for pasta. If occupancy was higher and they had both restaurants open for dinner I doubt that we would have gone to the Italian one, but this trip we didn’t have a choice. One suggestion for the resort is to have a host/hostess seat people when they arrive for dinner, as it was everyone mills about the bar and then seated all at the same time, I am sure that this causes the kitchen to be slammed. When the occupancy was down to 8 couples this was no problem but on our last night with 14 couples being seated at the same time there was an impact. Everybody was served promptly their appetizers and soup and salad courses but those seated at our table were not served our entrees until some tables had completed theirs and the tables had been cleared. Another suggestion is to have the area near the bar at the main restaurant fogged for insects. It was hard to relax at the bar when everyone is spraying each other with OFF or the Listerine spray they had on hand.
The staff at N resort was for the most part friendly and it seemed happy to serve the guests. The one thing I noticed was how the level of service changed when Freddy the GM was around. When he was there the level was top notch, plenty of drink service around the pool, the bar tenders were always right there ready to serve you. But when he was not around there was no pool side service and you had to wait for the staff to take a break from their conversations to take your order. Housekeeping was great, the room was always kept clean and the bar stocked with what was requested.
For the most part the entertainment staffs kept us entertained, the afternoon contests were a little disorganized at times. But we did like the demonstrations on making jerk sauce, fruit and patties tasting, and cooking a jerk pasta dish. They also had rock painting; it would be nice if they included body painting. We did find the nightly themes to be a bit tiresome; it would be nice if for a night or two they had no theme or maybe have an Au Natural night were everyone would be encouraged to just wear their birthday suites; after all it is a nudist resort.
I do have to give kudos to Freddy the GM. My wife injured her eye right before we left on our vacation and while at N resort ran short on her pain medications. When Freddy was told of her dilemma he immediately pulled out his cell phone to make contact with a doctor in Falmouth. Within an hour with Freddy’s assistance and help from the front desk, we were in a cab heading to the doctors for the prescription, then the pharmacy in Falmouth to have it felled and back to the resort all in about 90 mins.
We did have a good time at N Resort, we met up with some old friends and made some new ones and would like to return in the future. If we were able to get some of the great deals that some who booked after us did I might have given them a higher rating, but the fact is for what we received we overpaid. Next time I will wait later before booking.
