Great value for your money. Very clean....staff is exceptional and very friendly. Food is good and if you get a chance to stop by the steak house the steak is delicious. Only downfall I say was the fountain pop at the pool bar was always flat, but there are a number of other drinks you can substitute for it. We...

If you aren't looking for a five star luxury resort but want somewhere clean and great value as a base for your travels you probably couldn't do better. We found there to be a great choice of food/drinks etc - the rooms although not huge were well appointed but furnished with typical Caribbean dark wood furniture. There are optics in...

Good value for money..the longer you stay the cheaper it works out. Staff were very friendly and helpful...couldn't ask for better service. Food not too bad...bit samey..rooms cleaned every day and mini bar with optics stocked every other day. Outside areas very clean. The only downside was the hotel shop. We like our munchies....and they cost a fortune. There is...

Paid a visit with my kin folk in November and upgraded on the Dreamliner! It's fair to say that the flight over was excellent, roomy, comfortable, great service and worth every penny. The scene was set for the holiday as we landed, greeted by dense cloud and humid conditions, the island is lush, very green which pretty much told me...

We were very disappointed with our stay here. The weather was terrible (rained, no poured, all day every day). Now that can't be controlled but the resort did absolutely nothing to keep people entertained and having a good time. Especially for kids. There weren't any crafts or games or toys for them. Expect the bare minimum from this resort. Also,...

Hotel is alright if you smoke, if you don't there is no place to hide from the smoke ,it chokes you going through the lounge to the theatre all you smell is smoke, for that reason would not go back there .

Agree with some of the reviews.. To much smoking by the stage area. Few flies around that where annoying. Beach wasn't spotless because of the weather. But over all for the price this is a great resort that we would go back to again. The entertainment at night needed work. Specially the annoying announcers. The animation team is wonderful especially...

Let me start by saying that the weather was bad, we only had two full days of sun in all the 2weeks, which is no fault of the hotel. As for the hotel, the staff are lovely and friendly on the whole, but let's get to the nitty gritty. We arrived on Sunday afternoon, first impressions were good, wifi was...
