Two of us, regular visitors to the Caribbean, stayed for an all-inclusive fortnight before Easter. The location was stunning: lush gardens and multi-level bar-restaurant area above bays curving past green volcanic hills with pelicans and egrets (or were they cranes?) lazily gliding by... the classic Caribbean scene.
Some previous travellers have criticised the food but we wonder what they expected - and we aren't that easy to please. We had some exceptional, memorable meals (up there with Galley Bay, which we've also visited) and none less than good: buffet breakfast with a variety of choices including fresh-cooked eggs; four courses including soup for lunch and dinner, as much wine as we needed and service never less than friendly. Similarly the genial bar staff produced anything we requested with a smile and a pleasant word.
Rooms were adequate - large bathroom, enormous comfortable beds and scrupulously cleaned - though we'd have liked better seating and lighting for evening reading. But the early morning panorama from the room terrace ,across the bays with the sun rising over the hills, was more than enough compensation.
If you enjoy chilling out on a hammock or sunbed surrounded by turtle doves and needle birds; if you love white beaches and a turquoise sea shading to aquamarine under scudding clouds and an azure sky; and if you can find your own entertainment rather than demanding a series of external attractions... then this one is for you.
