Extremely impressed with the accomidations at this resort. Pools, Beach Access, Resturaunts, Wait staff, grounds are beautiful. We were there in March and it was not crowded. It is definately more higher End than most hotels on the Island. Loved the Pool side cabanas.

This was quite a shock because no-one has mentioned this in the previous reviews. We have young children and this was a major concern for me! At first glance, we were underwhelmed by the outer appearance of this hotel....

Very spacious, comfortable room with thoughtful features and room to spread out. Lobby area has many seating areas. Heated pool with lots of umbrellas and drip dry type lounge chairs. Bell staff was very friendly. Pet friendly atmosphere. Ask for ocean view if important. It is a bit of a walk to the beach.
