It's fine but not what you expect. The Sandals commercials and brochures make it seem cleaner and newer then it actually is. The service and food is good though. It is worth the money to get a butler. I'm so glad we paid for one. Also, the spa is amazing.

If you like to go on extra excursions or sit at the pool and party then this is the place for your. If you prefer to be active w/o paying extra for it...go somewhere else.

My wife and I went stayed here mid-March and it was the best trip we have ever been on. I am a certified scuba diver so that was one of the main reasons we choose Sandals as our destination. The dive team was awesome and gave me a refresher course since it had been 3 years since my last dive....
