We were travelling with a 14 year old and a 12 year old. We found the hotel to be absolutely fantastic. It was our first dip into 'all inclusive' and we were nervous about how that would go. I have to report the food quality was excellent. We found it to be varied, interesting and always offered a healthy option. The staff were lovely, finding the balance between providing top class service and not being too over the top. We came across an atmosphere of friendliness and people seemed genuinely pleased to have you to stay. We found the poolside area to be more suited to smaller children, where they could play safely and be surrounded by like minded people; a lovely, playful atmosphere. Our family preferred the beach, as did a lot of older aged kids and families. We were never over crowded, and there's so much to do in the beautiful water. (You will be expertly looked after by the wonderful water sports staff).
We stayed in rooms 205 and 206 which had interconnecting doors which was fantastic. Loads of space! Younger families, I'm sure could fit in one room.
Make sure you try the delightful 'Carlisle Bay' cocktail ( created by the fabulous Ben Willets) . Lethal!
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. It's a stunning, quirky island, and this is a fabulous hotel in which to base yourself.
