We were only going to stay 4 nights but extended our trip another two nights. The hotel is exactly what we wanted and imagined a Carribean hotel would be. Very classy and open air architecture. The service has been great and the people are extremely friendly. Everyone shakes your hand or says hello as you go by. It's contagious. Quick run through of what we have done. Spa is great and really nice. There are a couple pools inside the spa area and we layed out and had lunch there one day and it was really nice. We also swam with the dolphins and it's a one in a lifetime exp. if you've never done it. Very pricey at $250 a person and then they get you on the pictures and video for about $130 total. Try to get someone else to take pics but it's truly a great memory and if you can afford it, do it. My wife took riding lessons and enjoyed it but couldn't hear the guy well so he ended up riding another horse and attaching himself to her horse so she could hear. I took a tennis lesson and the guy wore me out. The weight room is a little dated but plenty of weights and the fitness area is nice with plenty of machines. We also rented bikes and that's the way to go because the property is pretty big. It's 400 acres which is huge and that's one of the great things about this place. As for food we've had good meals everywhere but the best has been at the royal stocks. Byran was our waiter and he suggested this fish dish and it was steamed with lots of veggies. Really, really good and pretty cheap compared to rest of the resort. On Thursday nights they have a band outside and it's great atmosphere and the band was really good. The sugar mill was ok but nothing great. Seagrape is very nice because it's right on the water and the food is very good. The beach bbq is nice with lots of options. One negative is this place is pretty expensive but you can find cheap meals(royal stocks) and cheap drinks(comissary) if you try. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and we will definately come back. The service has been first class.
