I am just amazed at all the bad reviews that I read before we went to this resort!
I won't write a major review right now, but I have to say that the Manor side was awesome. The riviera was very nice as well but loud with all the people and the amphitheatre. The Villas were so peaceful and beautiful even though I did not use the semi-private pool, well worth it. Friends spent the first night in the Manor house and moved the next day because it was a little loud. The food was great and not so great in my opinion, depending on where you ate. I won't get into detail because everyone has different tastes when it comes to food. The jitneys could be a little quicker in my opinion, alot of times we just walked because we were tired of waiting. This is not something to let your trip be ruined over though. The Dunns river tour was cool but the shopping in this area is absolutly the downfall to this tour. They are very aggressive, it is not like this in town at places like Sonis shopping. I would of loved to buy something but got very irriatated at Dunns, don't be rude though this is there way of life.
Staff was awesome at this resort, definately would go back to a Sandals.
Sorry, I guess this is somewhat like a review.
overall, If you can't have fun here than you are not alive.
Saw some people that you know will be the bad review, snobby complain about everything type people.
Oh, and met someone from this forum(Blyon, I believe) that were upgraded and were a little upset about that, so hopefully they got that resolved and had a good trip.
If I remember anything else I will let you know.
