I was lucky enough to be able to do a last minute timeshare exchange after Hurricane Sandy foiled my original plans. I am so glad she did. I haven't had a relaxing beach vacation in a good number of years, and this one was great. Studio room was clean and had pretty much everything, though I will list some suggestions at the end.
Other than one surly towel person, everyone was pleasant and helpful. There is pretty much everything available from soup to nuts at the mini mart, and jphammocks, fishing and snorkel gear; books, games and beach toys.
Two ripuns a day to three different beaches are free. They offer a trip of some kind most days ofmthe week, and there is often an evening event.
The flavour of the guests varies. Weekends and Mondays seem to be a lot of friends and family from Trinidad. Not very friendly, in my opinion. However, once the numbers tilted to visitors from away, there was more opportunity to mix and visit. There is plenty of space to absorb the people and the grounds and spaces are kept very clean.
Now, some considerations. As mentioned, rooms are not very sound proof. Bring earplugs. Also, they start working on the grounds at daybreak or before. Flights start well before six, am
Nd for some reason, the weekend has lots of early morning car alarms going off. If you are near the front, you will definitely want ear plugs.
Bring laundry soap for the washer, dryer
Only soap is provides, so bring shampoo, etc
Curtains are thin so lots of light comes in from the security or basketball court lights. Consider bringing a dark sheet and some clothes pins if light bothers you
No sugar, salt or spices are left in the room, so consider bringing a bit from home. Though small bags of salt are sold at the minimart
Bring various sizes of ziplock bags. Can use for left overs, or to double wrap packages in the cupboards. Though I didn't see any, this is the tropics. Think roaches or bugs.
Water is drinkable, no need to buy water, but consider bringing water bottles with you.
English novels,to leave behind. Moat library books are french or german
