Spent a week here and don't like to blot the tripadvisor good reviews , however I use the site and would have liked to have known a few important factors on location. The resort is VERY remote ( several miles of dirt track) and located on the east coast that meets the Atlantic. Therefore the wind is strong and incessant. If you are looking for tranquil calm, Aqua Caribbean Sea then this is not the place to be, go to the west coast where the sea and beaches are to die for. Non such is for sailing and kitesurfing enthusiasts, perfect! As there's so much wind!! Beach was usually deserted because it was not pleasant to sit out. Also lots of seaweed.
Pools are unheated and cold ( prob because of cooling winds!), there's no gym , no spa and no hot tubs to warm up :( Ate in restaurant once but found choice limited, food quality average and prices expensive.
Villa was spacious but showing age in places . No curtains so very light and wooden slats around the building emphasised the howling winds.
People seem to love the resort and if you're into the sailing kitesurfing windsurfing then it is good conditions if you are more of a sunny beautiful beach lover then try elsewhere.
We drove 45 mins plus everyday to escape and also get to diff restaurants and calmer sea
