I stayed here in December for one week prior to Christmas with my 2 children(13, 11) and my husband. This resort is a great place for R&R. It is smaller than the Hilton which allows you a more intimate setting to get to know the staff and access to the beach and Carlisle Bay. The beach is right outside your door and the kids had a great time body boarding in the waves. There is also a Stand Up Paddle board place next door that you can have lessons at or rent the boards on your own. Just north of the hotel is where the sea turtles are. We took an excursion through Cool Runnings (a must do!!!) and this is where we ended up.
The breakfast was good and provide an assortment of hot(bacon, sausage, eggs, fish) and cold (fruit, yogurt, pastries) items. The only issue I had is that they always seemed to be overwhelmed when a rush of people came down for breakfast which was usually 9am, which then made it a bit slower to get some food items.
There are a few restaurants around. A must is the Cuz Shack in the parking lot of the beach. It has the best and freshest fish sandwiches I have ever had. There is always a line up so if you see that you are in the right spot.
As far as other restaurants around there is the Hilton and there is the Sharwma place by the 2 gas stations (these have snacks there). We walked to 39 Steps which was about 15 minutes but otherwise I would take a taxi everywhere as the roads are a bit tight and dark at night.
The rooms are updated and clean. The beds are great.
Overall we had a wonderful relaxing time. The kids loved it there even though there wasn't a ton of amenities for them. They enjoyed their time in the water, snorkeling and paddle boarding.
The staff was wonderful and always trying to help out. Cudos to Regina for helping us book restaurants, Leanne who made us feel at home and to my gardener friend who came by on his day off to wish us well on our departure day. Thanks
