We arrived at the hotel, after the shortest transfer ever. The reception staff were friendly, efficient and they were in abundance to cater for the new arrivals.After a "welcome fruit punch", we were shown to our rooms. Beware, the hotel has more stairs than a stately home and no lifts. The room was a "suite" (overlooks the front of the hotel) as opposed to the smaller "reef" that overlooked the beach. The room was so big that both of us would have had enough space to cater for a months worth of clothes not just a fortnights. There was the usual tea making facilities, fridge, tables and extra seating. The room had AC and a fan that were fully operational. The bathroom was functional but tired looking, however the towels and linen were very good.
The beach was accessible by more steps. There were more sun loungers than guests and all appeared to be well maintained and in good order.Staff were out every morning ensuring the beach was clean of rubbish. The beach had a man made stone wall to create a small lagoon free of currents and safe for children to swim in. Canoes, masks and snorkels were available to guests to use in the lagoon or out in open water at no extra charge. Being a private beach, it was very quiet and safe for children except for the locals with their jet skis that came in touting for business. Despite polite notices asking the guests to refrain from using the jet skis there were several that did. The beach bar staff were great, nothing too much trouble and always with a smile on their face.
The food was of good quality and in plentiful supply. Granted breakfast was almost the same everyday, however, there are not too many people I know that have a different cereal everyday of the week at home....The staff were efficient and effective at meal times, always ensuring you had what you needed. There is a dress code for dinner clearly stated, however, this is the only real formality. Dinner was either a la carte or buffet style, with lots of Caribbean dishes as well as comfort food for all. There is a small shop selling sweets, souvenirs, books etc just off reception but at a price. It is cheaper to walk the 10 mins to the local shops. Overall; the hotel staff were exceptional, food was great, facilities very good (spa and gym), maybe not enough for children to do if it rains, (no pool table, table tennis etc) but we would go back. The decor is a little dated and in places needed repainting, which started the day we left.
