    Fantastic holiday overall and would return!

    So it was a long journey to get to the hotel as we had Virgin flights from Heathrow via Nassau- then a few hours from the airport. We weren’t disappointed when we walked in to reception and saw a beautiful beach right in front of our eyes! The hotel is clean and really pretty. The staff sometimes weren’t so chatty but not rude I guess they were just going about their day. Our room was on the 5th floor with a nice view but the elevator was tiny and extremely hot and claustrophobic. I have a problem with my leg but had to take the stairs half of the time. Food was nice and there was always something to choose from, maybe slightly different after a week it can be repetitive. The beach is really stunning! More shops in resort would’ve been nice, but you can’t have everything!

    Very Nice Resort

    A very nice hotel and resort. The All inclusive is good quality. A great selection and availability of food. Clean rooms. Great staff (especially the entertainment staff who work very hard). A place with much to offer, which has a very pleasant and fun vibe.

    The property was clean and maintained. The staff was hit or miss on friendliness. The beach was large and beautiful.

    Clear waters, soft sand, no rocks on the beaches. We enjoyed the water sports that were included. Disappointed in entertainment, not a lot of options especially in the evenings. Food was average, nothing special. We did like the steakhouse the best. Drinks were not our favorite, we preferred Mexico or Dominican. Overall we had a good time. It is just quite a bit more expensive than going to Mexico or the Dominican. We could have went twice to those places for the cost of Jamaica
