However we've just come back from a week long stay late October and I can understand most people's comments - good and bad. Our check-in was quick and easy and the bed is very comfortable and the rooms fairly basic. I would advise paying for...

I must say though the fruit was fabulous. Staff were courteous and efficient but I thought the check-in guy saying 'welcome to your home' was a...

When we read some of the negative reviews, it really makes us wonder if these people stayed at the same hotel that we did!!! We stayed for 2-weeks from 10th Aug - 24th Aug 2010, and we had the time of our lives. It was our first trip to the Carribean and wonderful in every way. We arrived at approx...
