The beach is clean and beautiful; perfect for our little ones who had a blast looking at the transparent fish that swam up close to the shore! We spent 7 gorgeous days relaxing on the white sandy beach, blue sky and amazing turquoise water.

Perfect place to relax. Plenty of sun beds, shaded areas, clean sandy beach and beautifully calm waters. Very calming and pleasant experience. I agree that the Negril beaches are perhaps more impressive but I found this beach to be enjoyable

Yes, they are included with the resort stay. We tipped them a $1 per person every time we took the ride. They were so appreciative of the tips.
