We spent 8 nights there in early March 2013. The junior suite was more than adequate for 2 adults, 1 teen and 1 child. It was quiet ... which was exactly what we wanted: a place right on the beach without all the usual pressured resort antics.
The room was slightly dated, but the kitchen was fully equipped and the bed very comfy. The balcony was "ocean view" -- but since we were at the back of the property, more "view" and less "on the ocean." It didn't matter. We used the OCW as a base to explore from.
The Seaside restaurant closed rather too early -- from 9:30 pm onwards, if you want something to drink, you had better have brought something to the room. Or go next door. Or to the little dive bar 5 minutes walk away.
One day we went fishing and brought grouper back for the restaurant to prepare for us. The Canadian chef did a wonderful job and it was the best fish we had during our entire visit. The restaurant also charged us enough that I would not do that again. There are communal grills and with a little planning I could do this myself.
The beach was wonderful. Easily as good as anywhere on the island. The pool .. why would you swim in the pool when this top 10 beach is right there?
I think that it would be even better to come here with a couple of families.
