What I love - this vacation is so easy! Everything is right there on the property! And the staff is so welcoming and accomadating. I love the options of a quet pool or the acitivity pool (with water volleyball, water aerobics, music), all the water sports options (like paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, snorkeling). Never are you approached to buy anything extra (like dive trips or Piton tours - that are available), The fitness clasees are awesome and what is not to like about a spa treatment that is included everyday. Every trip I have made new friends. Read less

Amazing healthy meals, a wide range of activities , including Yoga, Tai Chi, Fitness classes, Sailing, Windsurfing, Waterskiing, kayaking, golf, archery, Aquafit) (Or lying at the beach!), excellent accommodations, very friendly and helpful staff. Nick Thompson (British Olympic Sailor) was there to teach sailing. Included in the package was a daily spa treatment (massage, wrap, facial etc). Evening activities were included also. This holiday was beyond our expectations and we will be going back for sure. Read less

I booked a room at $750/per night. My husband joined me later and they charged an additional $500/ night and tried to charge an additional night. I explained that $500/night is the price of an additional "Garden View" room- the actual cost to the resort was merely his food (which is average to below average), drinks, and activities...hardly worth $500/day. After 4 calls to "reservations", which doesn't operate after 5 pm, they still could not do the math. While everything is "inclusive" a double room is not even close to worth $1250/night. Read less
