It was a real pleasure staying here, the place and staff were wonderful. There were always several people there able to answer and assist us. Its a couple minutes from two nice restaurants if you choose to not eat at the plantation. Its about 5-10 minutes from Sugar beach which was very beautiful, snorkeling and another restaurant right there. The taxi to the beach is free to and from at a designated time. The food there was always very good, they hosted several night performances at the restaurant. Considering the location on the island not being on the beach, I don't think it gets much better. Additionally this part of the island was more lush than the other areas and several attractions nearby. Bugs were a very minor issue and it was mostly quiet at night other than the bugs but I had no trouble sleeping. The bed was a little harder than I like but I adjusted soon enough and I never complained to the staff so it was my own dealing. I believe staying here was a great value. Keep in mind that you either need to rent a car or taxi around which can add up. We chose a taxi (the plantation sets it up) as it would average out less than renting by a good portion and they were on time. Additionally the staff do not get paid much considering, which is typical on the island, so tips are greatly appreciated for everyone but not expected. They all still provided excellent service.
