We stayed at the Great Bay From 4/1 - 4/8 and had a great time. The hotel was very clean..our rooms were very clean and the food was very fresh and plentiful.
The beach was nice and very clean..sand was a bit coarse..but after awhile, you didn't notice. We really enjoyed watching the cruise ships come in. We were only a 10 minute walk to town and once in a while someone would come up trying to sell something, but we just said no politely and they went away. People have to remember that selling goods is what these natives do for money.. and we need to respect that. There are little bars to stop and have drinks on the way...fun and relaxing.
We noticed some reviews were negative about things...some people are just never happy...my husband and I have been to many 5 star resorts..and this was great in it's on way. We would absolutely come back...
