went last week for four days and enjoyed the resort. in summary, the room was nice (like tiles on floors instead of carpet), the food was good, the beach was nice. only bad point was we had about $100 taken from our safe as we likely didn't lock it properly and people were in our room when we locked it (or didn't) to spray room for bugs (got bit by something so they sprayed). its a shame that an otherwise great stay was marred by this. our fault for not making sure we locked safe properly, but shame on them for taking advantage (4 staff in our room when we locked safe). and they knew how to do it, took 1 $50, 2 $20's, 1 $10 out of our envelope so we didn't notice til the next day.
otherwise had to say resort was nice, very big. they said 2nd largest in Jamaica. nice long walks to beach each day (good exercise) so we didn't mind. nice nude beach section too, except for the local (4-5) who were fishing in water nearby and always wanted to walk by this section right near beach, no big deal, but a bit annoying as they did this several times a day. security usually shewed them away, but they didn't need to be in beach area at all.
if you are looking for an adult only resort, this only had a hint of it, as much mixture with families.
they were calling for rain everyday, but it never did, heard thunder but a few drops fell that's all.
water was mostly nice and clear. in nude section you definitely need water shoes. other parts were good. lots of chairs everywhere on the beach. didn't hang out at pool but it seemed nice and always lots of action there.
