I stayed at the Lagoon property, which is only a couple of years old. The Beach front property, which was my original reservation, is still undergoing renovations. Since that fact was not mentioned on the website when I made the reservation they upgraded me to their Lagoon property.

A beachfront room in PARADISE! A CLEAN, COMFORTABLE ROOM with a room safe, hot water pot and a bottomless supply of tea and coffee unfailingly re-supplied by the excellent housekeeping dept. Tyne beach in front of our first floor room was manicured and raked every morning. Free kayaks and snorkel gear was used by us every day.
