Was at the Resort last week (Mar 11-18, 2007) and it was a wonderful experience. Arrived at the hotel around 9pm and headed right to the room to change and head back to the bar. The Jr Suite room that we booked was very nice and I would recommend the Suites if you go. The hotel was clean and very nice, the staff were friendly and very helpful, if needed (we also had the key problem that a few others experienced ( 3 times throught the week) but it was not problem and they came to the room to fix the lock. The beach was amazing and the pools were great, lots of room to swim. The food was amazing and I would recommend the Steakhouse, Tushima and St. Ann's Buffet (mostly cause that's where we ate most of the time), the buffet was excellent and there was nothing you wanted that you couldn't find. Seafood was in abundance. I would definitely stay there again and today recommended it to a friend to go next month. I can attest to the 'positive' reviews that are on this site and everything they say is 'spot on', as for the negative reviews, if you want to have a bad time, you can find it anywhere and it seems to follow some people.....
I must note that I saw several designer made handbags during my stay, guess they couldn't keep out the 'riff raff'.
