We actually stayed for 12 days at this resort. It is really geared toward 7 day stays.
It is like taking a cruise, only on land instead of a ship. The resort is the destination and everything extra is very expensive.
The best parts, the entertainment was excellent! The house band Pace with Booza on the base guitar, Al on the drums and Kareen singing like an Angel were awesome! The best part of the entire trip really! Tia Marie is also just super!
The Beach itself is excellent, we spent most of our time there!
The rooms, we were in St James preferred, I would suggest the standard rooms are just as good and a much better value! You get nothing extra to enhance your trip!
The Spa! Way over priced! Triple what you pay in NYC for any service listed! They give you coupons but they take little sting off the price!
Wine, at best the house wine is $2- $5 a bottle! It was all terrible! A $8-10.00 a bottle US retail they wanted and upcharge of $49.00! This is deceptive advertising! IE a Kim Crawford from New Zealand!
The other drinks were usually decent as long as you tipped the bar tenders!
The bed was good, the toilets extremely noisy and the preferred was basically one big open room, not a lot of noise separation was possible! If you get my drift!
The buildings and grounds were well kept and maintained, some of the best I have ever seen.
The pools excellent.
The restaurants were mostly average. The two by the pools were the best for us. The Portifino and French the worst! Most of the food comes out of the same kitchen.
the Breakfast was always pretty good, all buffet style.
The staff overall were very friendly and always smiling, I rate the people there very highly, it was always a pleasure with only a few exceptions.
