We stayed elsewhere on the island but came to the resort several times to visit a friend and enjoy the atmosphere. Driving in, you pass by manicured grounds (populated with iguanas!) and definitely have a sense of 'arriving' somewhere special. On our first visit, we stopped to have a drink at the Deep End, a casual outdoor bar surrounded by canopied seating areas and a pool, which open out to a fantastic backdrop view of the ocean. We rented snorkels and puttered around the area immediately beyond the rocks of the resort, and saw so much beautiful coral and different types of fish! On our second visit we took a boat ride out to Buck island and spent over two hours snorkeling around the eastern side of the island and relaxing in the soft sand of the other side. Paid a visit to the Galleon and enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the marina, where we sat and watched several boats come in and out with style and masterful grace. Met some nice folks, had lovely conversations, and was overall very pleased by the setting which emanates luxury but maintains a non-snobby Caribbean attitude! Beautiful place, hope to go back someday.
