We were in the worst location of the resort but the beds were so comfy. Gym was great but turning on the fans would have been appreciated. Nice beach and beach bars. We would go back! We don't have a timeshare.

Great Facilities. You will have to do some walking up hills, which was no problem for us, but the resort was vacation home to many older folks. The renovated unit, 1 bedroom deluxe, was very spacious, clean, and the bed was fantastic. We had to pay for use of the gym, and the resort isn't really as pedestrian friendly as...

We booked our hotel room through BookIt.com, it was a pretty good deal for the length of time we wanted to stay, but still expensive because we can't fly direct. We arrived at the hotel around 11:30a, very hungry. We checked in and were forced to meet with our "personal concierge" who walked us through the events of the week...

The new renovations at the original Pelican, now Simpson Bay Resort, have transformed the resort back to its world class look. The staff are attentive and respond to any situation. We made a maintenance request and it was answered within hours. The furnishings are modern and functional. The beach has been reworked and doesn't have all the shells in the...

I was with group of friends and had booked four basic (“deluxe”) studios. Some of us received a superior studio that was OK and some, including me, received a basic studio that was not OK for a 4 star resort. Our room was relatively small, dark, on the first floor with a view to the alley between the building and...

It is walking distance to over 25 bars and restaurants. The studio kitchenette that we had was fully equipped and the bed was super comfortable. My...

Simpson Bay was recommended to us by a few of our friends that had stayed there in past years so maybe that is why our expectations were high. And if we just rated the accommodations I probably would have given it four stars but I have to be honest and say that we never felt welcomed by the staff during...
