The resort was beautiful and conveniently located between the north shore and south shores. The valet service was nice to have and included in your resort daily fee. Guest services helped us book last minute excursions. Buffet breakfast was overpriced. Can't swim in the beach off of the resort, but it was still pretty to view

Wonderful experience

Would recommend Thu, Nov 26, 2015
Our stay was very relaxing and refreshing. The rooms, amenities and staff were awesome. We only stared for three days so really didn't have sufficient time to see the many attractions. We did however went on a movie tour. Very nice and informative. Tour bus picked up at hotel so no need for transportation. The only draw back for us was we did not have a car. The hotel is not located near city. Very secluded, but again very beautiful.

great trip. very fun and relaxing.

Would recommend Sun, Nov 22, 2015
The hotel was beautiful. Right on the beach. The staff was super cool , friendly and, helpful. The pools and hot tubs were very nice. Great atmosphere. The hotel is incredibly close to the airport but I only noticed a plane maybe twice. Not even an issue. The hotel is pretty much centered right in the middle of everywhere you want to go. Very convenient. The WiFi connection was very spotty at first. They were upgrading it just prior to us leaving and it was much better.

Great value

Would recommend Sun, Nov 22, 2015
This hotel was very nice for the price. It was affordable with a beautiful open air lobby and beautiful pool. Overall you could tell the hotel was older but they have made great strides to update and modernize. It is a great location on the island, almost centralized and very close to the airport. Only bad experience was loud slamming doors. I'm not sure if it was the way the doors are made or inconsiderate guests but every morning we were woken up to slamming doors from our neighbors. Also, they need a water fountain to refill reusable water bottles (we used them for hiking). Other nice things, free airport shuttle and they were able to accommodate a late check out for us.

Awesome honeymoon week!

Would recommend Fri, Oct 2, 2015
My husband and I just got back from staying here on our honeymoon. The resort was beautiful!! They had several pools and a couple of hot tubs, and there were even a couple of waterfalls flowing into 2 of the pools. One pool was perfect for the kids with a sand bottom and a waterslide. The beach is right in the backyard and although it isn't great for swimming, it's a nice beach to take a stroll. The AC took a minute to get used to everytime you open the patio door it cuts off. It comes back on at 72 when you close the patio door again. So if you like it cooler, you'll need to adjust it back down everytime you open that door. The resort offers wifi, but it was a little spotty for us I noticed it connecting and disconnecting quite frequently when I was using it on my phone. We thought it was a nice feature that you could rent movies in the hotel lobby for no additional charge. It works just like a redbox movie rental. We thought the location of the resort was great. It's somewhat centrally located on the main road that goes from one end of the island to the other, so getting to each end only took an hour at the most. It's right by the airport, but we were never bothered with the noise from the planes in fact, we never noticed them. Overall we had a fantastic stay here, and we would definitely stay here again!!!
