The "playmakers" at the resort were awesome, I became friends with them and they really kept the entertainment fun and enjoyable. The only downfall of the stay was that our sink was leaking the first day but somebody came and fixed it within an hour. The pools, the views, the beach, the activities and the locals made this honeymoon one...

Greeting at airport and shuttle to resort was great. Orientation was a disappointment, lady was very soft spoken and difficult to understand. Very polite and apologetic but just in the wrong position. Room is nice, we face a pool and the bay. Although TV did not work when we arrived and we called the front desk twice for extra pillow...

Spent a Sat. to Sat. at end of October. First impressions included how the scale of the development differed greatly from high-rise, all-inclusive Caribbean resorts we'd grown accustomed to over the years. A few days in, the differences became more apparent and welcome. Access to and from the room to the restaurants, beach, sport amenities, spa, lounge and health club...

“We get the swim up room. All depends on what you want, amenities (room service/mini bar) and how much time you will spend in your room.”
