Paul was our guide and he did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable about the area, and the sea life, and was a lot of fun. The kayaks have LED lights on the sides shining downward, and the bottom of the kayaks were made of clear plexiglass. The water clarity was very good, so we could see a good...

fantastic!!Dylan and Emma were great tour guides, pointing out much of the underwater creatures . No need to be a great kayak-er. Lots of fun and caps off a great evening. Frenchman's reef is a perfect place to relay and the restaurants at the east end of the island are all top notch.

We stayed at the Morning Star section of this resort, and thank goodness we did - it's the only part of the hotel with a beach! And it's a beautiful beach - very happy there.

After spending hours researching a day trip while in port, we decided on Morning Star beach (via resortforaday.com). After some of the reviews I read, I wasn't sure what to expect, but my group thoroughly loved it and would return again. The beach was beautiful and very uncrowded ( they only offer limited passes), my kids thoroughly enjoyed it. It...
