Had the best hotel/resort experience here. The resort has a beautiful lagoon which is relaxing and kids friendly. Swimming and snorkeling gears are provided for free. Parking is convenient. Restaurants can be pricey, but the dinner at the Browns Beach House was great. The staff is friendly and professional, especially their quality director. If the room could be upgraded, it would be perfect.
