I heard that they are plan to renovate the Paradise building this summer. I am going to SN next week and I will let you know what has changed since last year. The fire pits and beach bar renovations were done a year ago. They have listened to their guests and Appleton rum is back.

We stayed at SN July 2012 and December 2012.

Barefoot By The Sea has a new menu with focus on sushi and more seafood options.

Effective March 15, 2013, free basic wifi for concierge and higher room categories.

Effective June 20, 2013, free calls to U.S. and Canada and to U.K. and Jamaica landlines using the Apple App Store and Android Market (Play Store) Sandals Resort App on your smart phone.

Free wifi and phone calls apply only to Sandals Resorts in Jamaica and do not include Beaches Resorts.

Have fun at our favorite Sandals Resort, going back in July and can't wait!

If you are using your personal smartphone, and can't use the room phone, how are they going to know whether you're Concierge or not? Just a curiosity question.
