I finally had enough Marriott Points to book a 3 night stay here, and I'm so glad I did! Even if you use points, you still have to pay a daily $50 resort fee, but that includes valet parking, wifi, access to the Silver Rain spa facilities, water sport rentals, and more so it's worth it!
The best part was being able to rent snorkel gear, a stand up paddle board, and a kayak with a glass bottom for free! The beach chairs are really nice, too: padded with a terrycloth cover and adjustable shade. On calmer days, they have water hammocks and floating dining tables set up at the edge of the swimming area.
My friends and I booked the special 45 minute massage deal but ended up spending more than 2 hours in the spa because there were so many other amenities to enjoy including a hot tub, steam room, sauna, and La Prairie products. My masseuse was Dawn, and she was awesome!
The service was impeccable with everyone going out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Henry, one of the doormen, can recommend local places to eat, and Spence can recommend the best snorkeling spots and where to find a real, local farmer's market.
I'm usually the type of person that wakes up when the sun rises while on vacation because I want to head out and enjoy the day, but I found myself sleeping in a little because the beds were just so comfortable. The room comes with a DVD player, and you can rent DVDs from the Concierge. The bath tub and shower were separate, and the bath tub is nice and deep (which I really appreciate).
Every morning I would get some free coffee from the Silver Palm Lounge and buy a chocolate croissant from the Cupboard (ask, and they'll warm it up for you) and eat it on the beach. We had lunch at Periwinkle, and you HAVE to try the truffle parmesan fries. They are to die for. The bartender also makes a really good virgin ginger mojito with fresh ginger.
We ate at Taikun the first night the restaurant reopened, and it was just okay. The (new) furniture was a little awkward to use while sitting because the couches were too set back and the table was too low. The food was also just okay; nothing really impressive. I much preferred my previous experience at Blue, but it was still under renovations.
Every day that we were here, you could see 2 or 3 large cruise ships docked at Georgetown, but thankfully, on this property, you don't even notice the influx of thousands of people to the island.
