We were nervous as several of the previous reviews were poor. However it turned out to be a very pleasant stay. The accommodation was fine and the service very good. There was a faulty room safe and when I reported it it was dealt with very quickly.
The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable.
We were full board but tended to only have the breakfast and evening meal. The food was fine, some meals were excellent. The breakfasts were rather dull with the same menu every day.
The hotel bar is right by the pool which is handy. Our full board also included booze (not bubbly though). The beach bar is also handy as they serve hot snacks as well. However even though we could have any amount of booze at the hotel bar there was a price limit on drinks for the beach bar. It was $15 (US).
The island is lovely and I would recommend a 4x4 trip into the rain forest rather than the coach trip around the outside of the island.
Its also worth taking a boat trip which usually includes a BBQ on one of the beaches, ours was at 'No man's lands'.
There is a 'Sunday School' (unsurprisingly on Sundays). We thought it would be for kids but turned out to be a wild party evening with a steel band lots of drinking etc. It kicks off at about 9pm and apparently goes on till about 4am, though we were all danced out by midnight !
I did some SCUBA diving but it was not that great (compared to the Red Sea or the Great Barrier Reef) however there are some very large brain corals and a few turtles.
There were a couple of Squash courts but I did not use them.
We would recommend the island and the hotel.
