The welcome rum punch was delicious, the junior suite was very spacious and well appointed. I recommend taking the bike tour (bikes are provided...

Very beautiful resort complex, if a bit stuffy. Great activities, including snorkeling, tennis, basketball. Recommend using bicycles to get around the complex.
