This was my first experience at an all inclusive resort. The resort was beautiful and very well maintained. With 40 Villas at this resort the total number of guests can easily be over 4000 but it never felt crowded. The service was excellent. All of the staff was polite and would go out of their way to be accommodating. Now keeping in mind we are on a tropical island the service was never QUICK but for the most part the wait for anything was not excessive nor irritating. We went over a weekend and the restaurants were very busy Saturday night. Asking around to other guests and staff this is typical, Saturdays is the normal day for wedding's. Make note that on Saturdays get to dinner by 6 pm or wait until well after 8, this happened to us.
I read a review before going that said that items had disappeared from their rooms, money, iphones etc. The safe in our room was broken, speaking to another guest it took the repair man 2 hours to fix their safe so we kept valuables locked in our suit case, we had no issues at all but we were being cautious.
The hotel offers 2 beaches, one by the pool and a larger quieter one down by villas 39 and 40, by the Poseidon's Sunset Cove restaurant. We got there really early one morning and watched the sand crabs dig up to the surface, they are small and a pale yellow but funny to watch.
The group tours offered by the hotel looked fun be we made the mistake of taking a private tour with a taix cab driver (Jutu Taxi with Lloyd). Do not do this. Take a group tour provided by the hotel. No harm came to us but it was unprofessional, and a little scary.
