Its run and owned by Jamaicans and they have pretty good service relative to the rest of the island. There is only one restaurant and one "grill." The food is actually pretty decent considering. The place has no real beach, but you can visit the beach at the resort next door, which is excellent.
The whole charm of this place is the nannies, who try to let you enjoy the vacation without taking care of your kids all day. Our daughter didn't take to the nanny, but it wasn't her fault. She was too young and was still attached to us.
The place is a bit rough around the edges. It isn't owned and maintained by a billion dollar corporation, so don't expect top-notch quality. The showers are decent if you use them during off hours, otherwise hot water is sparse.
All-in-all, we had a lot of fun and the staff was excellent. If you can handle a place that isn't 100% perfect and spotless, and want to meet some great real Jamaicans who will do anything for you including watch your kids, this is the place.
