We were there from Oct. 23rd thru Nov. 3rd for our honeymoon, which is considered the end of the slow season. Sandy had turned north and missed these islands which was a blessing, but did bring some wind and kicked up some surf and seaweed. This boutique resort is beautiful and very quiet. Really felt exclusive. The service and staff were amazing. This is primarily an adult resort, which we loved. There was one day of a couple of pre teen boys getting loud by the pool, but they left the following day. I would often notice people sleeping by the pool. Pete the pool bartender is a very friendly and pours a good drink. The pool and resort area are fairly well protected from the ocean. As windy as it was, there was little to no wind by the pool during the day. The beach in front of the resort is amazing. Feels private. As is everything on the island, drinks and food are expensive. Our travelocity deal included continental breakfast. While it was your basic run of the mill continental breakfast, we learned that it's normally $22 per person/per day if you had to pay for it. The internet worked well and the suites came with most things that one would need including a full kitchen. I'd recommend picking up snacks, breakfast foods, and light dinner stuff to save on costs. There is a nice little bar area and restuarant in Graces Cottage. Food was excellent and wine list was decent. The previous reviews as well as Trip Advisor reviews spoke of a free happy hour daily where drinks and appetizers were free. However, that policy may have changed or wasn't in full effect because of the season. While there were some sort of snacks out daily, there were only half priced select drinks which consisting of the local swill, a house red and white, and a rum punch.
