The resort is large and with lots of activities, a great spot for families. To make it more appealing to couples take a beachfront front room at Morningstar where you can enjoy the location right on the beach, close to the market. Each morning we would get coffee and muffins and enjoy the ocean view from our balcony. Unfortunately, each...

My husband and I recently spent one week here and we were sadly disappointed with our room as well as the general appearance of the resort.

This hotel is a magical place. The views alone are breath taking.

Amazing property, Great Food, Friendly Service. I could visualize the early merchant and pirate ships waging battle in the harbor. Plenty of amenities and navigating the island was, well....a breeze. Almost felt like I was still in the USA with so many expats.

We spent a night here before leaving on a cruise. The units on the beach, away from the main building, are great...kind of like your great-aunt's house...a bit rough around the edges and in need of some detail work, but comfortable and quite clean...with direct access to the beach.

Check in was 4:00. We arrived at 3:00. One room was ready. We didn't get in the other room till 7:00 and it was in the wrong building. Promised a call from the manager but he never called. Food is just ok but the service is terrible. The island is great but I will not stay here again.
