My boyfriend and I picked this hotel based on the reviews we had read and we loved it! The room quality, service, food and location were top notch. We travelled with Sunwing and had initially low expectations but were pleasantly surprised. We started in the Premium building on a lower floor and requested a higher floor and were accommodated a few days into our stay. The view from a high floor in the Premium building is amazing.
Our favourite place to eat lunch and breakfast was the beach barbecue, hands down. For dinner, we liked the Italian and also the Japanese a lot.
I have travelled extensively across Canada, the US, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe and Australia including many all inclusive resorts (more than a dozen) and this one was the best all inclusive I have been to.
Based on previous reviews, I had very low expectations of the beach but found it to be much better than anticipated. I snorkelled out past the stone walls each day and found plenty of coral and fish to see. We bought Keen sandals especially for the "rocky beach" and never used them once. We have since returned them. I went in barefoot and just avoided the coral - the water is clear after all - and never had a scratch on my foot. There are also areas completely clear of coral and others where it is obvious that you just don't want to be walking.
One minor disappointment is that we never once, in a whole week, managed to get a "beach bed". I mean the double mattresses with the floating sheets around them - we did easily get lounge chairs on the beach every day and never once woke up early to "stake out a bed". It is true that people wake up very early and save them with towels for the whole day which is a shame as then half of them sit empty for most of the day.
A pleasant surprise was the pottery table - we found this only on our second to last day unfortunately. Spent one lovely relaxing hour painting a small clay fish ($5) sitting under a fan in the shade. It was glazed and looked beautiful the next day.
The best part of our trip was the people we met. :) Stop reading reviews, just book it. You will love it.
