both places are beautiful but you are trying to compare apples and oranges. one is beachfront and has watersports/restaurants/shopping etc all close at hand, the other is beautifully secluded with spectacular views over most of the east coast of the island.

Hi

Centra Grand Beach Resort is as good as the Photo's you can look at on this site.The Pools are large good to have such a large option .The beach area is great ,nice soft white sand plenty of seating .The sea is great for swimming at any time of the day we swam before breakfast every day at 7.00 am the beach is empty.Then again before the sun goes down at 6.00pm pure bliss.We had our breckfast every morning at the beach side resteraunt .Try the Banana bread & jam.Shopping and other dining options at street behind resort 2 min walk .Other options 5 minutes walk along beach.

They have new pool villa rooms that would be nice for a few nights $$$ ?.Massage on the beach $10.Vendors on the beach are great if you treat them ok Try the fresh pineapple on a stick or they will sell you a cheep beer or icecream without leaving your sun lounger.

Regards
