Classy and laid back! Posted Aug 4, 2014
Upon arrival we passed thru the several gated entrances/security check points so it was nice to feel the resort had high security. The resort was very large and secluded, as compared to several others that are packed in beside each other. Beach was wide and long, clean, and of course pretty. Plenty of the non motorized sports for everyone. No open beach chairs, however :( Chairs and chairs w/shade were always available at the pools. Pools are luke warm, hot tub nearly same temperature. Ocean was much cooler than pools, but not cold.. felt perfect :) Our room was standard, no upgrades, and it was wonderful- plenty of room with couches, balcony w/bed and table, indoor/outdoor hot tub. Full bottles of liquor in room- vodka, rum, white rum, red wine..also sodas, beer, water with snacks(one small bag of chips, small oreo pack, medium m&m, and a snickers bar) The fridge was never cold! Had to order ice from room service- which is 24 hours and arrived within 30 min. A/C in room was awesome. Food was pretty good. No reservations needed at the restaurants but if you don't get to the grill(steak house) or the lobster house(seafood) closely after they open for dinner(6pm) you can be on the wait list for up to an hour…so try to get there early or you'll be eating very late. It takes a long time to get your meal- and most of the portions are tiny. Plenty of bars, the drinks are amazing! No tip jars anywhere and nobody asking for tips. We tipped anyway.
