Relaxing surroundings, with an erotic edge, and without frat party brouhaha.

Overall, we were pleasantly surprised compared to the reivews we had read here and on other sites. If your expectations are realistic, you will not be disappointed. The facilities are not lavish, but they aren't decaying either. Grounds are extensive and well-kept. Some things could use a coat of paint, but that wasn't our overall impression. We found the staff friendly and helpful, especially by Jamaica standards. The beach is spacious in depth and length and pretty private.

We'd stay again on the prude side, as it's a little closer to dining, the beach in front of the room is never crowded, and it's easy to get to the nude side beach and hot tub whenever you want to (5 minute walk or less), and it's ch
