We went with a group of 18 other friends and acquaintances, so we were our own entertainment, which gave us something to do after supper besides sit at the bar. The staff and the beach are second to none. Our group consensus was that it was like going to your cottage but not having to cook or clean. Most of the food was pretty good considering that the cuisine was mostly Carribean, which doesn't always have the best red meat, but their fish was always tasty.
The beach was the place to be, as the bay calms the ocean waves, and the sand is great. There's an old fort to climb to and if it's calm enough,snorkeling. Papa Les provided us with activities during the day like volleyball. Lunch is served at the beach bar, and the greatest variety of food, as it's a menu. Everything was good to eat here.
The pool was nice, but not designed for a resort - it's 8 feet deep, except for the swim-up bar, so you can't move around the pool with your drink or do any activities. But great for some exercise.
The rooms were fine, but mosquitoes were a problem for some at night, even if you kept your windows closed.
On one night, supper was served in the Barrington Room and that was the best food of the week, the pork tenderloin got excellent reviews. The only reason to rate food less than excellent was the repetitiveness of breakfast and supper for the most part.
