Hi CaribeFan,

It's the Grand Pineapple Beach Resort luxury ocean view rooms that have been renovated.

It's the tropical waterfront rooms that were renovated for sure... not so sure about the ocean view - of which i've read complaints about.

We are going in two weeks and are staying in the tropical waterfront room.

I stayed last June at the GPB, we had a tropical waterfront room and it was fabulous. It was nicely decorated and comfortable. Right on the waters edge and the best rooms at the resort in my opinion.

I am going to put my vote in for the Verandah resort. We booked the oceanfront rooms at GPB last year and they over booked and put is in a dingy dark bug invested room. Since we had a child they could not upgrade us to Sandals so we left the resort and went to the Verandah which saved our vacation. We loved it so much that we just came back from a 10 day stay at the Verandah 2 days ago.

They are different hotels, the GPB is directly on the beach but it can get busy as cruise ships now send tours to this beach and it is attached to your hotel.

The Verandah is on a cliff on the waters edge with amazing views from your balcony. They have 2 smaller beaches which are quiet and if you choose to want to visit Long Beach (GPB Beach) it is only a 3 minute walk.

Enjoy the island as the local people are amazing and you will have a great vacation.
