Have narrowed down choice of accommodation to Deluxe Beach Villa at the top end of the island (what was Blu Lagoon) or Deluxe Beach Villa with Jacuzzi in the middle (what was Cottage & Spa). So many of the reviews are dated before the renovations that it is difficult to rely upon them to make the final choice and I would be grateful for opinions from anyone who has visited recently. The idea of being at the more exclusive, quiet end appeals but from the island map it would appear that all the Deluxe Villas look out onto the reef side which is not so picturesque and some people have complained that they are set into such lush vegitation that they are dark and get little sun. Whilst we are not too worried about having a jacuzzi the Deluxe Beach Villas with Jacuzzi in the middle of the island seem to be all on the prettier Lagoon side and are much larger with outdoor lounging areas front and rear but some are set much further back from the beach and in a "busier" location.
Also, what is the current position with regard to loungers on the beach? Are there any or is it still the old plastic chair set-up?
