We stayed in a three bedroom residence for five nights in March. We had a wonderful trip. The residences was very large, clean, comfortable beds and they supplied it with small touches like laundry detergent, patter towels, and dish soap. Our residences was on the first floor - so we gave up the spectacular view but it was nice for my children to walk from pool to our unit unassisted. The residence pool is heated very good for entertaining children. We played pool football and volleyball without worrying that we were disturbing other guests. There are also a few lawn games and ping pong and pool surrounding the pool area. There is self-service water infused with citrus in dispensers by the pool. A nice touch. My children also figured out that the bar would give them a cup of goldfish snacks if they asked nicely! The food is overprice and good - not fantastic. Restaurants all have great locations for outdoor eating. The benefit of the residence is you have a very nice (small) kitchen. We brought a few of the children's favorite/easy foods in a suitcase and served them one or two meals a day in the condo. We preordered perishable grocery items, beer/wine as well. We also found that walking nextdoor to Cowput Bay's Sangria restaurant for breakfast or lunch to be worth it. It was much less expensive and good food right on the beach. The Hotel side infinity pool is spectacular. It looks over ocean to st john. The hotel resort fee is definitely worth paying for if you want to enjoy the beach activities besides just lounging. We used paddle boards, snorkels, fins, paddle boats, kayaks. For all that we used, the price did not seem high. The hotel side also has a sand art craft tent on the beach which we loved. You have to pay extra but it was a great activity and keepsake. We felt service on both sides to be very kind and accommodating. Keep in mind, everyone is on "Island Time."
