This is the second time at this resort, and I liked it again. The beach is by far the big draw at this place. It is spectacular, sandy, calm, and warm. The rest of the place is very nice, and kept spotlessly. I constantly saw staff members cleaning one thing or another. The was one thing that was not what...

We requested a top floor at the time of booking as the noise from above can be quite loud on the tiled floors which we learned from past experience. They were happy to accommodate us. We tried all the specially restaurants and we're not disappointed. The entertainment was terrific.

Good food, friendly staff, clean accommodations. Grounds nicely kept. Restaurants need to be booked as soon as you arrive to ensure reservation. Fabulous beach. Some guests don't follow the rules, such as children at the adult only pool. No enforcement of these rules. Air Transat on-site staff very helpful. Weather could have been better - flooding on the first day...

We were on the top floor, which I would recommend. We never heard any noise from neighbors, our maid Elisabeth was very kind and efficient, and the bathroom was well...

One of the best beaches I have visited. It is sheltered by a reef so always calm enough to swim, and the snorkelling is good. I saw barracudas, a southern ray and a conger eel, plus squirrel fish and sergeant fish among others. The hotel is set out very spaciously in tropical gardens where you can see humming birds and...
