I must admit that I was worried about what we might find after reading many of the reviews here. We had requested a newer refurbished room above the first floor when making reservations hoping to at least avoid some of the problems described below. We were very pleased to see our second floor room: large and comfortably appointed with a king size bed, wicker sofa, two chairs, ottomans, and small table. The private balcony had two chairs with cushions that reclined. And the view--absolutely breathtaking! The sunrises were stunning. We rented a jeep and ate most of our meals off property. South Shore Cafe is charming and delicious (but be prepared to take your time as the owner, Diane, does everything herself), and Duggans is a lovely casual setting with great food. We drove the perimeter of the island and also part of the rain forest. You must be confident to drive on the left on narrow roads with vegetation close to the edge. Be on the lookout for deer and other cars passing into your lane as you go around curves.
The sea grass did make swimming rather unappealing, and I was surprised to rarely see anyone venture into the water. The resort does remove it from the beach most mornings (did not do it on one day-Sunday - during our 6 day stay. The staff was polite. Housekeeping only cleaned the room when the 'service please' sign was placed on the doorknob so be sure to do that if you need new towels, etc. They did a pretty good job on a daily basis but the room could use some occasional deep cleaning as the air vents had a thick layer of dust, etc.
All in all, we had a wonderful relaxing stay at Divi and can only assume it will get better as they make improvements.
