I took my husband on this trip to celebrate his 30th birthday from April 4th-9th. The grounds are immaculate and very well kept. Our room had a few hiccups such as the toilet would run non stop unless you jiggled the handle and pushed it up a bit and the lock for the door got stuck so we couldn't shut our door without it blowing back open but the staff resolved that IMMEDIATELY! Staff was very attentive and always smiling and willing to help. The food is okay nothing too special, I would definitely try to eat at the restaurants every night instead if at all possible.The beach is breath taking and the snorkeling is even better! We saw all sorts of fish and even an eel. We made it a habit to try snorkeling every day since you were bound to see something different each time. Also, there is a little bar close to the beach where they make nutella filled crepes and other types as well which are fantastic. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking if you sit near the pier or on the beach facing the lighthouse bar.
