We stayed at this resort in Jamaica the week of December 16th, 2011 and had a great time! My husband and I took our 2 adult sons with us and we booked 2 rooms - 1 junior suite and a 1 bedroom suite. Both provided ample room and ammenities. The rooms were clean and suitable (I read earlier reviews that complained about poor workmanship but we need to remember that as north americans our standards are very high - we saw the same problems around expectations when traveling through Europe). Our room was in a lousy location and after a couple of days we were moved to a lovely partial ocean-front room. All the staff are super friendly and very attentative. I was also amazed with their patience as I watched a family become extremely rude and physically aggressive with front desk staff on our last night. The resort really does offer something for everyone. There are several beaches (both rough and rocky as well as calm and protected). The main pool was the largest pool I had ever seen! The variety of restaurants was good and the fact that you didn't require advance reservations made for a more carefree approach to going out for dinner. I read some complaints that not all facilities were open every night and it became confusing to know where to go - the lobby always had a schedule for the week posted which made it very easy. Given we were there during slow season, it is understandable that not all restaurants were open.The staff at the beach with the waterfront sports activities were great. The only concern my one son had is that he found safety practices for scuba diving somewhat sketchy. The grounds of the resort are wonderful and the walking is worth it - the exercise is good for you particularly when drinking and eating as much as you can. I'm not sure what the complaints around theft were but we had no problems during our stay. The room safes were great (and make sure you follow instructions to ensure your safe is locked before leaving the room). As well, hotel security was set up around the perimeter of the property at all hours.
We certainly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this resort to others.
