Just returned from a week stay with friends (long-time timeshare owners there). Nice place, very friendly, attentive staff. Reviews all pretty true... but the devil's in the details. Great location... Yes, they do cater to their older regulars (but it's a timeshare resort, so that's to be expected)... and Yes, the place shows a little wear in the corners. Problem is, the website photos are so stunning and the pricing maybe leaves some people thinking they're getting a 10 star resort for a 4 star price. Rooms - clean, well serviced. Yes, little sugar ant issue (tropics anyone?) Pool / amenities / beach services - nice, well served. Places to eat and drink very handy, and easy access to both Dutch and French adventures close at hand, while being much more peaceful and quiet than staying in town. All in all, considering what it costs to stay at the Westin or Sonesta... and what you get... it's a pretty decent deal in a gorgeous location for the money. A lot of visible reinvesting in the property going on, continual stuff (according to others). The staff and the value put this in the 'pretty nice' category for us. Just not 'awesome' or 'stupendous,' n'est pas? Would return (in fact, already shopping for 'shoulder' season deals in May or November.) Will stay again.
