The resort was nice, but the service was poor. It must be bad management. Here are a few examples. 1) Beach towels. You get little passes for your beach towels, and are told there's a hut where you can exchange them for clean towels at 9am. Most mornings we went, they had no towels and we were told to come back in an hour and a half. When we did, they'd already be out. They did not start the day off w/ towels, and they could not keep up w/ the demand. 2) At the pool bar, I ordered the conch fritters. The menu said they came w/ mozarella sticks. I was actually craving the moz sticks (I'm pregnant, so you know how a craving can be). So when it came, there were no moz sticks. I asked the bar tender if it came with them and he said "no." I told him it said it did on the menu and his "Gold Crown Resort" answer was, "there's something wrong with the menu." Really? Are you serious? That's your response?! 3) We needed to have maintenance because the jets and drain were broken on our whirlpool the first time we tried to use it. Good luck trying to get Guest Services on the phone. Half the time they never answer, and the other half it takes many rings. Then, when the maintenance man came, we answered the door and asked if he could come back in 1 hr because our son was in the middle of a nap. He rolled his eyes and said he was busy. It was really rude. 4) On check in, right after we signed all the paperwork, I remembered that we needed to ask for a crib, so I did. I pulled out my credit card again and Jo Anne whispered to us that we should really pay in cash because the resort charges you extra if you pay by credit card. So I paid in case, and wouldn't you know, the crib was on our bill when we checked out with no record of us having paid Jo Anne. 5) We stayed in a studio room and the kitchen was so tiny and did not even have a frying pan. We cooked bacon, eggs, and toast in a spaghetti pot which was really difficult to clean because it was bigger than the kitchen sink.
The water was a pretty blue, but not very clear. The beach was pretty decent for the Caribean. They say they don't recommend walking to Phillipsburg, but there is a sidewalk, and it's really not far if you can get yourself up and down the hill. We walked there 4 times w/ our young son in the stroller, and me being pregnant. We only walked back once though, took a taxi the rest of the times, but usually only because it was dark or we were too stuffed from a wonderful dinner at Antoine's.
