    The best excursion was the RAZR, Dr. Spa and deep sea fishing. Purchase those through your airline rep (eg Air Transat) for best price. Each was about $80-120 USD per person. The most overrated was the catamaran/speed boat... More

    Privilege is a time share type option. We found the sales people for this pushy and took up about 3 hours of your time during their sales pitch. To us there as not much more benefit between privilege and sapphire.

    As a lone traveller would The time share /sellers approach me? Do we have to ask for mosquito nets or are they supplied? Is there a problem with them at night ? I see those awful barriers on the beach sadly not before I booked my trip. Really disapointed in that . hoped for a lovely view as I wasnt planning on leaving the complex. Are you alble to move down the beach and use other sunbeds or do you have to stay in the ocean blue area.? Is there a beach person that will help with applying lotion to back or will i need to bring a long handled radiator roller :) Sorry lots of questions but my first lone holiday :( thank you.
