Paid additional fee to get a beach-front room -- which was well worth it. Lovely beach, and some of the best snorkeling I did during 3 weeks on the island! Lots of fish. - I agree with other reviewer comments that the hotel feels dated. Stains on the carpets, bit of a stale smell. The sitting areas around the lobby were not comfortable or inviting - with the exception of the bar /patio area. No nightlife or evening activities (which was ok for me). The on-site restaurant feels like a bad cruise ship - bad bright lighting, everyone eating at the same time, and felt rushed, not elegant or comfortable. Food was also not fresh local - though most people seemed to like it. I did like the breakfast buffet that was included in the room -- fantastic selection, including a whole table of gluten-free options. - Staff were wonderful and helpful.
