I probably would have given this resort 5 stars, but there were some major renovations going in the area of the pool bar near the beach. It wasn't a pretty sight nor was it safe and I couldn't understand why they kept it open. But 1st let me start by saying this IS NOT A HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE, resort or island....

The one thing that vacationers need-to-know is that this resort is very multi level and this does make it difficult for people who have issues with mobility. The other issue is the entry way to the Resort which is also in conjunction with the Street and between the traffic, lack of sidewalks, road is in dire need of repair and...

The room we had was great. It was a small unit as we only stayed one night, but it has been cleaned up and redecorated in good taste. We enjoyed. The B pool needs some work or I would have given a 5 star rating.

My friend and I both 26 stayed at this resort. It was nice, but I'm not really sure that I would stay here again. There wasn't really any other people our age there. The resort was definitely spread out but I didn't mind walking. The rooms were nice! However, we are big beach people and I was really disappointed with...

When arriving at the resort, we were assigned a personal concierge who walked us through the events that were happening every day during the week. We were then driven to the door of our room.

I loved the location of this resort - in the middle of Simpson Bay. You can walk to many places from here. However, did not like the suites on the mountain side. Wished they were closer to beach and not so far back from the ocean. Plus the suites seem dark and you can't really open a window to let...
