As everyone says this is a dated resort but they are working on it. We stayed Feb.2-9 in a garden view room(609)on the 3rd floor that was clean & comfortable with a very limited view of the ocean. We did not have a frig or coffee machine but apparently they are available on request. I would suggest upgrading to pool view at least if view is a priority. Some we met had room problems & notified management and they tried to make things right. No face clothes so take your own. Most staff were very good, especially Orlando at the lobby bar & Lisa at the omelette station & Lisa who was great with our room. Beach is very good & we'll maintained. Food was very good with enough variety to satisfy most everyone. The resort is trying to go smoke free which we were not made aware of so there are only 2 ashtrays available on the grounds & none for the balcony so we used cops with water. Warri Pier is enjoyable with romantic atmosphere.
Would recommend an SUV day trip with Gary of Voyages Antigua($100 each,6 hours inc. lunch, drinks & lots of info & great sites) through Transit Rep.
You will very much enjoy this resort if you keep in mind that it is reasonably priced & the positives greatly out weigh the negatives.
Thanks to all.
