Great place, great staff! 6 of us went to celebrate a graduation, a new job, and an anniversary. The entire restaurant and bar staff was GREAT, but we really enjoyed Bethune, Vinton, Wainsworth, and Marvette. The rooms are a little old, but kept clean. Housekeeping is friendly and trustworthy. If something isn't working, just call the front desk. Someone will come by to fix it, and they are nice, too. The food was good and there's plenty. My favorite meal of the day was breakfast. Delicious omelettes, coffee, and fruit, but there was something for everyone at all the meals. After a few days, it gets a little repetitive, but I think that is typical of AI buffets.
The beach is beautiful, clear water and soft white sand. I was always able to get a seat in the shade. We went out twice with the guys next door, Captain Jack and Chad, on their glass-bottom boat and had a great time seeing the cliffs, going to Rick's Cafe, and snorkeling. Others went out with Captain Moses and we heard good things about that too. Yes, people do try to sell you things along the beach, but security doesn't let them come up close to the resort. When you're walking or running on the beach, just say no thanks. We did wish there was more to do at the resort. There was a ping pong table, but no ball. A pool table would be nice. We walked to Times Square Mall a few times, where there are touristy shops and an ATM; takes about 10 minutes Right across the street is Shamrock market, a convenience store. Cash only, but the guy is friendly and the prices are reasonable. Note to the local government--pick up the trash more frequently from the residences surrounding the resorts.
All in all, we had a great time and would go back, mostly because of the staff and good value. You don't have to, but tip a little if you can!
