The resort is lovely. The room/villa we had was wonderful. It was roomy, clean and well-appointed. Contrary to some of the other reviews, our kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed.
The beach is nice and private. The pool is quite small and abuts the dining area.
The downside is that the resort, while next door to Sandals, is far from town and other restaurants. Town is a $100 cab ride, return. As well, there are no grocery stores nearby so we were not able to use the kitchen as we would have liked.
The main problem with the resort is the restaurant where the service is excruciatingly and inexplicably slow and servers are sometimes rude. We found the food to be mediocre.
Many of the other restaurants only take cash so bring lots of cash. The nearest ATM machine is at the airport.
If you go, I would highly recommend renting a car to avoid spending a large amount of money on cabs and to eat elsewhere.
