I have stayed at this resort 3 times. I usually get busy when I come back to Toronto and have forgotten to write reviews. This time, I owe it to the wonderful people who work at this resort and consistently go out of their way to make your stay a great experience to write a well-earned & deserving review. They truly treat you like you are at home & as part of the family. The fact that I have gone back to this resort is a testament of my overall experience. I am also writing this as I find some of the negative reviews simply unfair.
The property has a great location on a great beach close to everything imaginable both beach & road side. Rooms are spacious, clean & basic. There's AC & basic TV. The TV package has all the essentials covering news, sports & movies. They even have CBC & CityTV if you fancy some CDN content. For Quebecers there’s TV5 for French content. I find that all room amenities, although basic, just suit me when on vacation as I am either out & about or just sleeping/resting when back in the room. I also find the food very good. It has variety, is fresh & has local representation. The callaloo, Festival and all the Curries are simply delicious.
Yes the bar closes at 10 pm. Which is great really as the resort is basically quiet & a great place to rest. I find that I always go out for entertainment in the area anyways [bars, concerts, dining etc]. And frankly when I come back, I want to go back somewhere quiet so I can rest [just like I want it at home...]. I generally avoid round-the-clock & rowdy resorts anyways as, like I say, when back from a good night of partying, I want a clean, cool room in a quiet place so I can rest.
There’s free wifi all over the resort except the rooms. You’ll have to come on the balcony to get connected.
Also, I have partied with a few guests on each of my 3 stays over the last year-&-half past 10 in the bar and resto area. As long as we were mindful of all the other guests the security and overall staff allow you to drink your own alcohol and stay as long as you want.
Everyone working at this resort is great. KD at the front desk was simply fantastic upon my arrival. As always I feel safe & at home at once with Richard, Lawrence & Ms Ritchie [security]. Richard & Biggs [grounds] although busy with their daily work always chat and make you smile like great friends. Nyron & Collin at the bar are constantly making sure you have everything and your glass is full. Robert & Wayne although in the kitchen, always come out & personalize your experience in the resto. The wait staff Shelly, Audette, Judith & Andre are simply amazing. They always smile and remember your favorites and add a sweet and friendly touch to breaky, lunch & dinner. And Jennifer makes sure your room is clean and cool when you get back in. She is simply amazing. Everyone at this resort makes an honest attempt to get to know you in order to make a lasting impression on you.
On this trip, I also did an excursion to YS Falls & the Pelican bar using Mr. Fix-it’s tour service which included George as our driver. They are registered at the resort and take care of you like family. If you think the sunset at Rick’s is something, try going to The Pelican Bar and experiencing the sunset there. It’s awesome.
Sorry for this belated review. Every single one of my stays deserved a review of this kind.
I will always go back to this resort for the value & the great experience.
