Spent 10 days at this resort with family. Had a great experience as our 1st time in Barbados.
Hotel was great, water sports team and beach deserve a particular mention. The restaurant team also managed to achieve the right balance of efficiency with a relaxed style. I didn't recognise any of the comments on here around rude staff - although on occasion efficiency meant removing plates of some of our party before we had all finished a course.
The comments in other reviews about the bathrooms and other bits of the campus needing a refurb are fair and prevented me giving a rating of '5', but did not detract from an overall good experience.
The food was of a good quality and never lacking in quantity, although at times a bit 'middle of the road' which I guess is to be expected when trying to cater for a variety of tastes. Personally I would have liked more local dishes - the limited number on the menu were great.
Would we come back to this hotel? Yes.
