This is a clean and lovely property with friendly staff. The lack on internet in the rooms made it challenging to conduct work. During the winter months and in light of no direct flights bringing tourists to the islands currently, the restaurant is closed so there are no options for food or drink (or water) within walking distance. (Tap water on the island has a high saline content.)

The pool area especially the swim up bar is very nice. They don’t clean/tidy up the room when you stay there, there’s an extra fee to request for that. It’s kinda odd if you want new towels in the room, you have to go up to the laundry/housekeeping place and ask for new towels but before you can do that, you have to bring the old ones from your room.

Staff were friendly, the grounds were beautiful and we loved the lazy river. The room had everything we needed and housekeeping was awesome. Valentine took very good care of us (you are the man! Thanks.) The ferry and grocery shuttle were very well priced and we used the ferry frequently.Our first 2 weeks were great. On the last week the spring breakers started to arrive and that wasn't so great ; loud cussing, doors slamming/ yelling between midnight and 3am. If you're there with kids and don't want them exposed to thong bikini's (whether girls looked good in them or not) or are an older couple just looking to relax I would avoid the last 3 weeks of March and first 2 weeks of April.

I visited this resort on an excursion and LOVED the pool area. Fun water slide, grotto bar, sun lounge in the pool, lazy river, friendly people. My husband & I stayed at the resort (Marlin timeshare) and although we had a great time, there are several things they could do better. Because it was a slow time at the resort, many activities and hours were not kept. My husband was really excited for the Thursday night bonfire that did not occur. This is nearly free for the resort and would have brought the guest out to enjoy. They did have the scheduled Sunday night bonfire (advertised as Thursday & Sunday nights) but we were on a flight home:( They listed activities (also on a chalkboard) that did not occur and had activities that were not listed. If guests want to participate they need to know what's planned. My husband & I joined an unannounced poolside bingo game and really enjoyed it. The gift shop across the street (Flamingo hotel) was supposed to open at 8am per the room info card but did not open until noon while we were there. Generally not an issue but this was the only place on property to get water, soft drinks, and snacks besides the bar or restaurant. Offering water and/or coffee in the lobby before/after these hours would have been really nice. There are no vending machines to get a beverage if the hotel areas aren't open. We had some great meals at the resort restaurant but that seems to depend on the staff for that meal.
