First of all, you needs lots of cash. Taxis, ferries and some other places did not take credit cards. The resort did, but you could not run a tab at the bar or restaurants there. Having to carry your cards or cash was an inconvenience. Someone had even lost their credit card by the pool, but fortunately for them, an honest person turned it in. The check-in was good, but our room in building L was on the 2nd floor and looked out at another building. The floor was a bit dirty when we entered and the check-in clerk got snappy and said that she would clean it herself. Ok, she did, but it should have been cleaned in the first place. The bed was very comfortable and clean. This is not the Ritz and we knew that. There is a lot of walking up and down steps, so be prepared. Sangria's was passable, but nothing great. The salads and the pizza were very good. The drinks are pricey even at happy hour. The Fish Market restaurant was expensive and another guest told me to save my money. So I did. Beware of the sand fleas! I must have ended up with 20 very itchy bites. There is a beach area that is ok, but you will need to go to Cinnamon Bay or St. John's or Virgin Gorda to have a gorgeous beach experience. If you don't mind driving on the left hand side of the road, rent a car. It will save you money and you can tour around on your own. The check-out was ok too, but just remember that you will be charged $22.00 a day for the energy surcharge. It was ok here, but I would not go back. Not that I had a negative experience, but it was a bit of a come down after staying at some really quality Carribean resorts.
