My husband and I stayed for a honeymoon. It was the perfect spot. Compared to many other resorts in the area, I felt we had found the superior spot, because of the privacy and open-air feeling of the place.
Room: The room is more like a secluded cottage on stilts. There are two per structure, but you are separated, and I never even heard the neighbors. The sleeping porch is divine. It is the perfect spot to lounge, read, talk, and watch the egrets in the field behind the resort. There were several types of birds that landed on the porch, and little lizards that appeared now and again. Everything was open-you could open the doors to the porch and the wooden blinds on both sides of the room and feel like you were sleeping right in the heart of the island breezes. You could also close it all up and turn on the AC, if that's your preference. The bathroom was very nice-the shower was two-person, with full-body jets. I did not miss a bath.
Staff: The staff was incredible--every single person we encountered from the resort was nice, they all knew our names, and we really felt they went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful time. They even set up a secluded poolside dinner for us one night. We couldn't have ever asked for better staff or service.
Food: The food was pleasantly varied. I'm a vegetarian, but always found things to choose from. They could stand to diversify a bit more. The "nice" restaurant's dishes weren't as good as the buffet. A minor quibble.
Beach: Stunning, warm water.
The only downside was the mosquitos. We left covered in bites. Would have liked Citronella candles in the room.
