1st time at this resort. The location is fabulous, close to shopping and restaurants - within walking distance which is tricky on this island with no sidewalks or streetlights and lots of traffic. Our room on 1st floor was not exactly clean and had some maintenance issues. We asked to have the drain in the shower fixed as it was not level and had a very sharp edge, they said they would take care of it immediately but never did. Room could use a thorough cleaning as it had mold in some areas and the floors were dirty. Beds were comfortable and the furniture was nice. Kitchen fully equipped as well. The Cabana bar and restaurant was surprisingly good. We thought food and drinks were very cheap. Service was at times a little spotty and our dinner order was fouled up several times, but still the food was good. Check in was quick and easy. Taxi drivers were the best, very helpful and we made an effort to engage everyone with friendly conversation, which they seemed to appreciate. Getting around the island is tricky because traffic is very bad so expect to leave early for an outing because you will sit in traffic. The two bedroom units have one sink in each bathroom and our toilet was so close to the wall that we had to sit sideways - just a bit uncomfortable. Resort has pool right on the beach which is fairly private and great for kids. The small grocery right on property was well stocked and very convenient, but there are other supermarkets within walking distance.
