"We enjoyed a lovely week in this spacious and super comfortable rental. It was very roomy for our family of four and super clean, with a pleasant living room, well-equipped kitchen and dining room space. The bedrooms were very nice with kind/queen beds (great linens), and newly renovated bathrooms (very modern and attractive and the showers had great water pressure!) I will say that towels provided by the resort were thin, but the owners had nice beach towels available, and other beach amenities (beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, etc.)
Although we are not big TV people on vacation, our kids loved the fact that there were flat screen TVs with cable in every room and library of DVDs. We also enjoyed great air conditioning and ceiling fans.
The kitchen was modern and well-equipped. The front porch has a nice ocean view, but direct beach access is blocked by a walkway and large planting area. It is a two minute walk to the beach, but the view is partially blocked due to vegetation. Yet you can easily hear the waves and enjoy spectacular morning sunrises! Sadly, no chaise lounges-- not enough room. The patio has a round table and 4 chairs, so nice for breakfast or dinner. The swimming pool is very nice but modest by big-resort standards.
But, the spectacular, Jolly Holl beach, is 10 minute walk!---Don't miss it!!. Absolutely beautiful beach!! Forget the pool, go to the beach!
The staff was super friendly and helpful! The only caveat I have is that while this is a pleasant, comfortable, laid-back resort that has everything you MIGHT want (and they will try to meet all your needs), it is NOT an ultra-LUXE resort with gift shop, coffee bar, spa, etc. (You need to go to Sandals for that…). Nonetheless, we had a wonderful week. This place fit our casual needs perfectly.
The restaurant/bar (complete with swinging rope chairs by the bar) is fine for tasty, basic, well-prepared beach fare (fried conch, grilled fish, burgers, salads, fries, etc). But don't expert a gourmet experience. Perfect beach/bar fare. --Not great for discriminating foodies. (We ate there twice--fine for our family, but I would have been disappointed if I had been seeking a romantic, gourmet dinner for two...).
Our stay was great overall. We appreciated the spectacular beach and ocean, the super friendly and helpful staff, and the casual, low-key, laid-back experience."
