Located on the atlantic side of the island, the trade winds are constant. At the beach, the sand blows on you and it is hard to keep you book open or the sand out of your kindle. The beaches are long and you can walk either direction. The pools are nice, though crowded. Forget ordering food at the pool restaurant, it can take at least an hour. Both the pool and golf course rooms are fine as well as the rooms in the outlying buildings. It is far from town and taxis cost $12 each way. There are some restaurants to walk to, italian, sushi, carribean, indian and Karma's right next door has outstanding asian food.
