I've come here 6 times in 20 years for a meeting that's always held here. Over the years they have done a lot. I want to be positive in this review when I say that this was likely a once mainly motor inn, and over time they have built it up and added features and expansion as well as annexing...

Came for a conference and was pleasantly surprised at how nicely they have improved the entire property since last time. Our room was sparkling clean with tasteful bedding and really nice toiletries (formerly they used a brand that was overly perfumed). The pools, beach, food service, meeting rooms were all excellent. Staff could not have been more helpful, both with...

We were at the resort on the Island Grand side from 1/26-1/31 (2013). If you don't have a car the resort offers their own called Resort Transportation, they are for profit but they will get you where you want to be for the lowest price. I wanted to visit the Don Cesar Hotel down the road and the resort transportation...

So the trade winds was very disappointing. The location is great, the accommodations and service was poor, the spa was a disaster and the food very expensive, which is OK if the service and food is in balance with the price, it simply was not. The spa is terrible, literally the worst message I have ever had, they ended up...

I was a bridesmaid at my friends wedding. She got married on a weekend here. As I am childless I was a little apprehensive about this resort as it appeared very child/family centric. There are definitely activities for children and families but I never felt like it was overrun. The beaches are beautiful and well maintained as are the pools....
