Loved the location...beautiful protected bay to swim in while watching giant cruise ships in the distance. Nice walk down the beach to Philipsburg to shop and work off a little of the extra calories consumed. The food at the resort was excellent and there was good variety. The pizza place was so handy and tasty. Staff were friendly and attentive.
The pools could be a little warmer.
Make sure you do the Rhino Safari rubber boat tour and snorkel. We are already planning our return trip.
