We were to be in a 1 bedroom, partial kitchen unit accommodating 4 people in the Victorian House. This was not available when we checked in so we were moved to 2 adjacent rooms in the hotel section of the resort. This worked as it provided both couples more privacy. One room had 2 double beds; the other a king size bed. There was adequate storage and closet space. You can get a key and lock for the in room safe at the front desk for free. I would suggest it for peace of mind. A table to accompany the two chairs by the windows overlooking the bay would have been a nice touch.
The rooms were cleaned daily with fresh linens and sheets. The small refrigerator is restocked with bottled water, soda and beer daily especially if you tip the maid. The bathrooms are a nice size but the lighting is a little dim. In both rooms the tubs were slow to drain and the shower head in one sprayed water all over the place due to a leak. Even though the problems were reported to the front desk, nothing was fixed while we were there. Not what I would have expected from a Gold Crown resort.Would recommend that if at all possible you stay in the Victoria House. People we met and talked to who were staying there stated that it was much nicer.

The rooms are spacious, but amenities like an iron were hit-or-miss in the hotel units and were standard once we got to the Victorian House. Both room types were clean; the Victorian House is just nicer.

In our many stays in the Caribbean, we have encountered a lot of problems with the beds. My wife needs a king-size bed due to a back problem, and usually we don’t get one, so I end up on the couch for a week. We had a one-bedroom but chose to stay in a studio due to it being closer to the pool and having a wonderful bed.Resort Experience:The resort is really a two-in-one, but if you have a disability or can’t handle stairs, you will have a hard time at this resort. It is built in levels. My wife has a bad back, but the girls at the front desk were very helpful in finding us a room about 50 feet from the pool on the same level.
It was mainly tourists from England and Germany. There were not that may couples from the US. So, being that about 90% were from Europe, the girls/woman went topless!!
There were shows every night at the outdoor/indoor theater. We participated in one, Sousua Bay Couple for 2005. It’s like the newlywed game, but instead of answering questions, you perform tasks. I think we would have won if there were more people from the USA, as you see, the winner is picked by who claps the most for you.
All in all, it was a WONDERFULL resort, and I would be glad to go back someday.
