Didn't know was Sandals ownedPosted Jun 1, 2014
Although the resort is somewhat dated it is very comfortable and well maintained. The beach is beautiful. Food was very good. Staff was friendly and efficient. Very sad to hear that Sandals will be tearing down the entire resort sometime next year.

Loved itPosted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: staff was friendly, beach beautiful
Cons: Hope they change their mind and don't turn this into a Beaches resort. Just finish renovations and leave it just as it is.
This was a wonderful, laid back, relaxing vacation.

Very Authentic Caribbean hotel, beautiful placePosted Mar 22, 2014
Cons: Sometimes the "beach hustler" vendors can be a little annoying, but just ask to be left alone and they are courteous enough to respect your wishes.
Location: Catamaran Tour, driving island tour/sightseeing, Hobie cats, snorkeling, kayaking, beaches
We absolutely loved our trip! It's a perfect couples destination as it's very laid back and peaceful. There are activities though, we went sailing all the way around the island on a catmaran tour including lunch, drinks, and snorkeling, which we'd highly recommend. We felt very safe and the staff was excellent, from the couples massage, to the managers cocktail party, to the food, cocktails, and friendly service. The food was really great especially for an all inclusive. The beach was beautiful as well as the landscaping which made pictures look professional with the turquoise water back drop. We even got upgraded from an ocean view to a tropical waterfront room. Don't miss the Outhouse for an unbelievable bbq lunch overlooking the beach! So sad to leave but we will definitely be back!

Good hotel on the beachPosted Mar 20, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff. The "Outpost" was a great place to have a quiet barbecue lunch and a beer.
Cons: The layout of the main bar, restaurant and entertainment area was a bit strange.
We have stayed at this hotel a few times now. As it has been taken over by Sandals some gradual improvements to the accommodation are taking place and we understand that some major changes may take place over the coming year. We were in older and larger accommodation with ocean view which was a bit tired but everything worked and we enjoyed the charm of it. Let's hope Sandals don't mess up the look and feel of the place. The location on the beach is excellent. The food was generally good and had improved. We thought the standard of the rum punches (for example) could have been better. We enjoyed our stay and considered it value for money.

Pros: ocean view room very well located. the beach is good, but small.
Location: location is good, zero things to do nearby, the island is obviously poverty stricken, with no transfer of fiscal monies into the local peoples.
very tired and old hotel, very limited facilities, poor value for money, food was sometimes shocking, poor menu choise, probably the worst all inclusive hotel we have ever stayed in. we suspect the ratings on trip advisor and how these ratings are managed, not happy people.

Lovely placePosted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nice and low key, low stress sort of place. Super staff lovely beach . Food a bit variable , but eggs in the morning were just the best . Go snorkelling - it's worth it
