Got a good deal on bookit.com. Not much has changed since my stay in 2010. Place still in need of an upgrade but its very clean and not buggy. Beach still as lovely as I remembered. Food good, not great. Staff nice. Main bar closes at midnight. Nearby marina has restaurants, shops. Supermarket a short walk.

My partner and I have been staying at this hotel every January for the past 13 years. We understand that this hotel may not suit all and does require attention in some areas but the staff and beach make up for its failings. Every year we see familiar faces so we are clearly not the only repeat guests! This hotel...

The Resort is a little tired, however the rooms were clean and tidy, suggest you upgrade to a bigger room with balcony and view of the ocean.The food was better than expected from an all inclusive holiday, however there were three other resturants on site which...

Overall, we enjoyed our experience here. As with many resorts we've visted, there are pros and cons. You're getting what you pay for here if you happen to find the all inclusive vacation for around $1500 CAD. If we had paid any more than that per person, I would have been very disappointed. However, Antigua is not exactly cheap to...

We stayed as a party of 9 (ranging in age from 10 months to 64 years). Yes the hotel is looking tired in some places BUT the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and tidy. The beach was beautiful and you need to be up early to get a shaded spot on the beach...

After reading many reviews didn't know what we would expect! We were very pleasantly surprised and for the price you pay for this hotel the beach location is just amazing. This is a 3 star hotel, that is what you need to remember, but a nice 3 star. The hotel staff were brilliant and always very helpful and positive. The...

We just got back from a week long stay. There were 20 of us. The property was well maintained, with 2 pools. We had upgraded to the deluxe room, which was cozy and clean, with a balcony that had a beautiful view of the property pool and the ocean. Considering the only time we spent in there was when we...

Travelled to this resort as part of a group Feb 5-12/17. This hotel has great bones and will need lots of love and money invested into it so it can shine to its potential. It's on a fabulous beach and the hotel has enormous grounds. Pros - pool area is nice - beach is wonderful - rooms were generally clean...

Staff were all very friendly. Buffet was very good, with more than enough choices and they changed up the options every day. Lineup for the a-la-carte bookings started early in the morning even before the concierge opens at 7:30 a.m.. Lydias was excellent for the seafood, the lobster is a surcharge, but worth the price. Rooms are on the small...
