We stayed here Nov 2010 and had a great time! We had read reviews before we went and were pleasantly surprised with both the resort and the service we received while we were there. Would absolutely go back again!
- The rooms are great! Very clean and new. We had a small kitchenette so we walked to the grocery store and were able to make breakfasts and lunches in the room, when we choose not to eat out. They also have grills out by the pool for use if you get meat from the grocery store.
- If you like to explore and try new restaurants, you are within walking distance to many great places to eat (with various price points to fit your budget). We found ourselves walking the main strip numerous times and trying new foods along the way
- It is small, but they do have a gym on site for guest use.
- The balconies are huge and a great addition to the rooms. We actually had someone come and give us massages on ours and it was great!
- The staff at the front desk was always happy to give us recommendations on where to get local food and taxis that would not be too expensive. Very helpful throughout our stay.
- The pool area is on the small size but in comparison with the amount of guests at the resort, it fit. There are also plenty of chairs and cabanas and there was never an issue getting either one.
- The beach is one of the best we've seen! They have both chairs and cabanas set up here as well. There is also someone there to get you towels, water, or whatever else you need.
- The hotel is not on the beach and you are only able to see a glimpse of it if you are on the top floor of the resort. However, it is just a short walk (really, it's not even two minutes!) through the Grace Bay Resort. The walk really is not bad at all but if you want oceanfront, be advised.
- There didn't seem to be a set time for the bar on site. There is only one so when you are looking for a drink and no one is there, there really isn't anywhere else to go without walking up to the main road or going to the Grace Bay Resort.
- There is no restaurant on site so you do need to plan your eating time based on when other restaurants on the main strip are open - and if they need reservations.
- If you're willing to take a walk to the grocery store, be advised that it is pretty expensive ($8 for a small box of cereal). But, being in a tourist area, I am not surprised. You can take a cab to a local store, which is much cheaper. Just ask the front desk and they will set it up for you. They have certain days where they take you, with a group, at no charge. Otherwise, you would pay for the cab ride as well.
