Caruso's Italian restaurant has a great view, with good food bit a bit exotic. Staff are formal but friendly. I had some kind of Mediterranean soup with tiny baby octopuses in it -- ewww!
The Islander Grill also has a great view, and serves local specialties. Try the conch cocktail and mango cheesecake! Meals here were spectacular and we had great service. You make reservations each morning for the specialty restaurants, but not the Topaz Buffet, as it is open for generous dining times. There are four bars that serve awesome tropical drinks by friendly bartenders who serve top shelf liquor. There are other snack bars and cafes to also chose from, most were closed when we were there because of off season. There is a midnight buffet and an afternoon tea served.
ACTIVITIES: Water sports are plentiful. There is a PADI scuba shop. The unique pool is has plenty of lounge chairs and poolside towels. A full time activity staff organizes activities throughout the day and evening. The beach is fantastic with lounges, umbrellas, and tiki huts on the sand. A piano bar, disco, nightclub, and a casino round out evening entertainment. There's several gift shops at the resort, including an upscale jewelry store.
CHILDREN: Children have their own playground, swimming areas, entertainment, and activities director. Only a small percentage of families had kids with them when we were there.
It's clean, casual, comfortable, relaxing, and we thought it was a great value for what we spent.

The rooms were big and comfy, but they needed updating, although the resort was in the process of remodeling some rooms while we were there. If possible, try to reserve the deluxe oceanfront rooms. These are right on the beach and off to the side of the property, with a very short walk to the pool.
Be sure to get up early to reserve your spot at the pool as they tend to become occupied quite early. Three restaurants offer reasonable fair with the Caruso offering upscale fine dining. All amenities were included in the price except scuba diving, but there is a five-star shop on the property that offers incredible dive sites. There is also a casino located on site, which is the only one on the island.
