"Idyllic setting for a first visit to the Caribbean"
Having never been to the Caribbean before or in fact an all inclusive resort we were a bit concerned about being 'trapped' in one location. On the other hand we wanted a week to do nothing in nice surroundings.
The accommodation was amazing, being right on the white sandy beach and within 20 feet of the sea. The room (we stayed in a premium deluxe suite) was spacious and spotlessly clean.
The manger Cedric was always around and very friendly. The staff were all very friendly and basically what could make or break such a resort. They are an asset to the hotel.
You could do as much or as little as you wanted. We choose the latter and spend most of the time just relaxing around the pool or on the beach. We did use the tennis court a couple of times when the weather clouded over and had a massage in the spa which was very good.
There are day trips and boat trips available.
We only visited the capital St John's for a morning. There isn't much to see or do in the capital and it does get very hot being inland. 1.5 to 2 hours would be plenty of time.
Overall a fabulous experience and would definitely return.

Hotel, rooms, food, staff, pool, drinks, beaches all perfect. The only downside was that the hotel allows people to reserve sunbeds with towels in the morning. This was most frustrating as there were sunbeds with no one on them for most of the day. People would often reserve a sunbeds by the pool, go off to the beach for the morning and come to their sunbeds mid-afternoon. The hotel should ban this behavior to make it fairer for everyone. Apart from this everything was lovely and I would definitely recommend.
