There are two buildings in this resort. Building one, is on your left if you looking at the main photo, posted by the resort. (As if you were in a boat at sea, facing the resort)
The two buildings, look very much the same, but they are different. This review covers building One. (Building two appears to have time share affiliation, as they had the RCI plaque in the lobby)
In Building One, the units are privately owned. The resort rents the units for the property owners.
Each unit is furnished to the property owners taste.
We stayed in unit 305 & 306.
It was nicely decorated. Our biggest issue, we had a party of five. The description of the unit stated, "futon sofa" this was not the case, and a 13 year old traveling in our party ended up sleeping on a love seat.
The other thing that should be noted, if you book a room with two queen beds, there is no balcony.
The two bedroom suite, has two balconies, one in the master and one in the main living area. There's a small dining table and a nice little kitchen.
All the rooms have ocean views.
Each building has its own swimming pool and bar. There's staff on hand at the beach to assist with lawn chairs and umbrellas. Servers come by to provide food and drink options. The service was very good at the beach. They will put the umbrellas by your chairs and bring tables when you place your lunch order.
There is Wi-Fi at the property, the first two days we had issues with the service and so did the other guests. The issued was corrected and Wi-Fi was working great by day three.
We had a few small issues in the unit and they were quick in getting the issues resolved.
The resort is one block to the Main Street with restaurants, shopping and a bit of late night options.
The location was great and beach is really amazing. White, soft sands. Boats do come in and park in front of the resort to enjoy the beauty.
We arranged transportation with the hotel, our pick-up was 20 minutes late. I would recommend this service. It's $65 per person, pick up from the airport, transfer to the pier, tickets for the ferry and then they pick you up at the docks and take you to the hotel.
Tip, rent a golf cart for a day and see the island.
