We didn't stay here, but we ate here twice and planned to stay for an afternoon at the beach. The beach, however, was just "okay" and didn't measure up to many or even most of the other superb beaches on the island. The pool area was also very quiet. The hotel looked nice and well-maintained, but vacationing here would be a quiet experience. It is also quite some distance from other places on the island, so plan for a rental car or at least motorbikes. We saw a couple arriving by taxi and immediately thought that was probably a mistake, both in convenience and cost. The food at the restaurant was quite good and the service was excellent, but the prices were also the highest we had seen on the island, and the island is somewhat known for being pricey. Basically, very good food at Manhattan prices. (I don't mean to scare people away by the prices, as I did feel it was acceptable for the price, but don't expect a bargain.) And while the website makes it look like an active "W" hotel type experience, it is too small a place to have a "buzz" going. Perhaps for a honeymoon, or even a sedate long weekend with very young kids who want to play on the playground or pool. Actually, thinking about it, perhaps perfect for a quiet, romantic rendezvous, where neither wants much likelihood of running into someone they know Maybe that's what its all about... Ah, for those so inclined ... perfect.
