We really enjoyed our stay at the Phoenix. My husband and my two daughters (6 and 9 years old) went for a week in the third week of March. We rented a suite with two bedrooms. The suite had 2 bathrooms (one with a full jacuzzi tub), washer/dryer and full kitchen as well as a living room and full length patio. it was quite luxurious and it was expensive.
It was a wide mix of guests. There were some other families but also couples (both straight and gay) and groups of friends staying there. The front desk was always helpful in finding places for us to buy things, making restaurant reservations, etc. They have computers, as well as book and game libraries for guests' use. They provide you with a cellular phone with $10 credit to start. We took two of the trips they recommended: a short snorkeling trip with Alfonze, and a private fishing/snorkeling trip with Erik. Both were awesome and memorable.
There are 3 pools. The lap pool is about 18 yards long, and the two larger pools are attached (one is deeper than the other). There isn't a great beach area so the pools were nice to have. (If you want to swim, there is a nearby pier off of which you may swim.) It was relaxing to read by the poolside while my kids played.
The fitness center is alright. It was hot for outdoor running so I used only the treadmill, which is old but useable.
The only complaint I had: because it is near the beach, I was kep awake one night by a beach bar where the music was too loud. This bar was not part of the Phoenx, however.
Attached is one of their three sister restaurants: Red Ginger. We ate dinner in there once and had lunch serviced by them, while we sat by the pool. These were very good meals.
I would recommend the resort highly for the cleanliness, helpful staff and the luxurious accomodations.
