"Great Location - Lots to do"
As mentioned in the title, the location of this hotel is fantastic, if you enjoy doing more than just relaxing by the beach. It's the epicenter of a lot of diving, snorkeling and other excursions. You can take a sunset cruise, an evening dinner cruise, and so much more. People come from a lot of other resorts just to do these, while we had access to all of that right at our doorstep.
Our room was decently well appointed, although the the hotel itself is a bit old. But the kitchen was clean, there was plenty of hot water, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
The service was nice, but some things perplexed me. There didn't seem to be a bellhop, so we had to get our suitcases to the room ourselves.
Similarly, when we decided to spend the day on the French side of the island and asked the front desk to call a taxi, they directed us to a security guard outside, who radioed dispatch, learned that there were no taxis waiting in the wings and told us to just walk through town and find one.
Other than that, the staff were quite friendly. Friendly bartenders at the numerous bars, great drinks, friendly concierge.
The beaches at the resort are a bit small - those images of a mile log beach stretching into the distance were not present at the resort itself. The beaches on property were quite nice, just narrow - coves, surrounded by rocks. Although, a short walk towards the airport, and we found a beach to fit that description quite easily.
