We spent 6 days at the Carambola and must say I can't find anything bad to say about our experience. We loved the staff and resort and would highly recommend a stay here. I read some of the earlier reviews prior to going so I was expecting slow service but we never had to wait for anything. The grounds are lush and very well landscaped. The pool and hot tub are open 24 hours and we used them late at night several times. The resort is secluded so you will need to rent a car, we got a Jeep but would recommend against it.
I especially loved waking up early and walking the beach at dawn. My husband enjoyed coffee on the screened in porch while watching mongoose play. We were on the bottom floor in building 24 and the beach and rainforest were feet away from our front door. I didn't even put shoes on the walk to the beach or pool.
We ate at several great places (eat @ Cane Bay, Off the Wall Beach Bar and Fort Christian Brew Pub) but my favorite was a Carambola staff recommendation The Whim Cafe. Stock up on snacks and sandwich supplies at Plaza Extra and rum at Kmart before you check in.More
