It's 5-8 min away from the airport and it's right in front of their restaurant row. Plus, it's near all the major ports to go check out other islands (St Barts,...

The staff are very friendly and work hard to keep the resort looking clean and new. Location is great- grocery store 5 mins away, lots of great places to eat and drink. We got really lucky and...
