Our six nights at SJG were fantastic. The room was clean and modern and had: a comfortable bed; a great ocean view; good air conditioning; and a modern bathroom with plumbing fixtures that provided instant, unlimited hot water. The food in the Grande Buffet was very good too. Advice: Go to the Guest Services Desk soon after arrival and make your restaurant reservations for your entire stay. Why? Not all the specialty restaurants are open every day and they tend to get booked up quickly. The hotel location is great because it has a lovely private beach and it's close to downtown. Don't hesitate to venture off-site and mix with the locals, who are polite and helpful. But be prepared with a firm NO! when they try to sell you something you don't want. There are local sights that can't be booked through Guest Services. Take a local taxi to Shaw Botanical Gardens.
