From the moment we arrived, we were treated with customer service excellence. All of the staff were accommodating and friendly, anticipating any needs we had. The property was beautiful and immaculate, and the rooms very comfortable and plush. Dinner at the Ocean Room was exquisite and breakfast at the Jasmine Porch was delicious. Pool time and service was extremely relaxing. We enjoyed exploring the grounds, beach and surrounding areas of the island, including The Ocean Course and lunch at Ryder Cup Bar. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Great overall resort. We loved it. The staff, the restaurants, the facilities, the convenience, everything. We also really liked the fact that they had a childcare option on site (not a third party) and they were able to line us up with the same sitter to watch our toddler the few times we used the service. The only negative I have to say about the hotel is that the acoustics in the room were a little bit sub par. For example, the noise of adjacent neighbors opening and closing their balcony and front doors was very loud in our room. Also we had an adjoining room on the last day of our trip and we could hear the conversations of our neighbor which was not ideal. This is the one piece of feedback I would give to the resort if they were interested. Everything else was fantastic and we look forward to staying again in the future. Overall, we would rate this hotel 5/5.
