We've stayed at the RWI several times, the most recent being for 8 days, end of May 2012. We continue to believe this is this best resort on Provo for the money, and it's certainly on the best stretch of beach for any money. Furthermore, the resort staff is absolutely top notch; consistently professional, willing, and helpful.
About two years ago the RWI changed hands and we've been watching to see what effect that change might have. So far, the biggest change seems to be the restaurant/bar has new owners, name, and menu -- we think the food is better than ever, so no worries there.
In general, we continue to be very happy with the resort, but there does seem to be a bit of a tendancy to "go tourist" -- BBQ on the beach, etc. (Great if you haven't any dinner plans; not so great when you're enveloped in greasy billows of smoke from the cooking when trying to enjoy the beautiful end-of-the-day on the beach.) Also -- please, please get rid of that enormous bright blue plastic used towel bin directly on the otherwise gorgeous walkway from the beach. Talk about ruining the ambiance! These are relatively small matters, but we, and I think most visitors to TCI, love the Islands because they are NOT Aruba or St. Thomas or Jamaica. We vote for keeping it simple and letting the natural beauty reign. Beyond that, all we really need are clean sheets, cold Turks Head beer, and a good dinner.
