A very nice hotel, probably the nicest property in MoBay. Even our basic room was beautiful –comfortable bed, steps from the beach, massive bathroom, etc. Staff were very friendly and helpful without being overbearing.
The only disappointment was the food. Meals and snacks were mediocre at best and extremely expensive. Even the best meals were on the bland side. But the worst experience was the Thai/Indian restaurant; we went there one night and found no other customers at all. That should have been a clue, but we decided to take a chance. One of our dishes tasted “off” but we ate the other (average) dish. I felt unwell after the meal and my partner didn’t even make it back to the room before being sick three times. And for this pleasure – two small dishes, one order of rice, one beer and one juice – we paid $90 USD. The next morning we reported our experience to the resort’s manager of restaurants and, while he was apologetic, there was no offer to reimburse us for the meal or even give us a small token such as a free round of drinks, etc. Any gesture at all would have been welcomed.
A couple other very minor quibbles – but nothing you wouldn’t experience at most hotels around the world, so won’t mention them. Overall a very nice hotel that just needs to focus on its dining in order to be one of the better resorts in the Caribbean.
