I've been to a lot of resorts and this one might be my favorite. The food is terrific, the staff is super friendly, and the setting is pure paradise.
The only shortfall is the beach - it's got a big coral reef right close to short, so you can't jump right in the ocean from the shore. You have to walk out on the jetty - which is pretty fun anyway.
Oh and the Wifi/Cell connectivity is dismal. Don't bother...just turn it all off.
