Executive Summary- if you dont go expecting a perfect 5 star resort and like a more laid back island style place, you will have a great time. otherwise, skip it.
We just spent 8 nights here over easter week 2014. Lots of variety to the lodging so ask alot of questions about which actual room you will be getting. Some have been mildly updated and others are very tired and worn down. Beds are nice and firm and feel new. There are std hotel rooms and villas, by far the villas are the way to go. Villas have full kitchens and most have pools. The resort sits on a VERY steep hillside so it is not for anyone with mobility issues. Some villas are at sea level and others are way up the hill with lots of steep steps and roads.
Major issue is that there is NO breakfast served in the restaurants- none! So if you are in a hotel room, you will need to scrounge something from the well stocked store. Hotel rooms have a small fridge and coffee maker but no coffee or filters, instead you get instant coffee bags, like tea bags.
There are 3 areas where food are served. Bar type food is served at outdoor restaurant and at adjacent bar area, same menu, pricey but everyplace we went in the area was similarly priced. Our favorite was the Mahi tacos with either a salad or fries for $17. You get 3 hard corn tacos with tasty mahi and lettuce, tomato and cheese. Bar area has a singing pirate happy hour just about every day that is usually busy and entertaining yet cheesy and touristy. Kids love it.
The upstairs open-air dinner restaurant is nice and pricey, ave dinner will be $40+/person. Nice big bar too.
Also there is a spa, laundromat, boat and jet ski rentals, and DiveBVI has an office there for scuba trips. As mentioned there is a well stocked store where you can find just about anything including beer, wine, liquor, personal items, vegetables, made to order deli sandwhiches, coffee in the morning, etc.
Side trip- ask the front desk to call the free boat from Saba Rock and go out for happy hour from 4-6 and watch the staff feed huge tarpon and a green moray at 5PM. Carib beer, painkillers (the local pina colada type drink) and rum punch are all $3.50 during HH instead of $7. Great food too but very expensive. Pina coladas are $8.25 and not on happy hour. Surrounded by water and great views of north sound boat activity from bar and killer hammocks and expansive seating areas on opposite looking out toward open water. We went for late lunch and drinks then took naps all afternoon and went back for HH and tarpon feeding, it was great.
