Overall a good choice. Pool water was warm, clean. Beach is really, really nice-had a massage on the beach. Some low key vendors there, too. Chairs and umbrellas set up. Quiet, private. No area to really snorkel there. The sister hotel, The Flamingo, has a different (we thought) nicer beach/pool area that can be accessed via shuttle. Our room was clean, had a safe, seemed secure, and the view everything one could hope for. Waters of the Caribbean glistening, gentle waves, etc. Food on grounds is very good, but slow (like all the places there). Good food all around the hotel. Beware the service charge at the hotel restaurant . Many Dutch (and French) restaurants include the gratuity, then lie about it, hoping to get more than 15%. We were told by the waitress at the hotel that this charge was not for her but for the cooking staff! Beware and check your tab. Hotel staff was on hand and nice. Cooking facilities are superb. Elevators were both working most days. Security presence well noted. Recommend renting a car from the Hertz rental on property. Read some horror stories about rental cars from Thrifty/Dollar. Took cab from airport-driver overcharged us. A great vacation.
