I stayed for 4 nights/5 days.
First the positives, you're far away from the "major attractions", which are all cheesy gift shops, mediocre restuarants and noisy bars.
You also have close access to one of the cleanest, most quiet and private beaches on GBI.
Now the negatives. The food is marginal. You can usually find something to eat at the buffet, however, the qaulity of the food depends a lot on when you get there. If you get there towards the end of the service, you're going to be dissappointed (they stop restocking about 1/2 hour before the doors close). I'd like to say that the food isn't representative of Bahamian food, but it is. The cuisine of the Bahamas leaves a lot to be desired.
The room was clean, with a bit of "deferred maintenance" (chipped tiles, leaky faucet, less than optimal appliances - hair dryer sucked).
The worst was the window/entrance to the exterior area. You had to settle between having natural light and having the entire resort look into your bedroom, or being a prude and having minimal light.
As far as the staff is concerned, they are "European" friendly, meaning they aren't going to run out into the street to welcome you. If you're patient and understanding, they usually treated you fairly. However, they didn't respond well to impatience or a lot of attitude.
I hope Wyndham decides to put a little more cash into this place and a little more attention to detail. The location and the beach are truly exceptional. The rest can be corrected easily enough.
