you can walk for an hour on either side of the hotel. nice wide sandy beach. i prefer the east side to the left of the hotel because of the sand bars
the only shade on the beach is provided by skinny palm trees. my wifes biggest complaint
there were plenty of chairs at the beach
the hotel rooms are nice there are a number of english tv channels. the only issue was the bathroom. the drain stopper was rusty. the hot water was plentiful but would fluctuate so you have to play with the faucet to make sure it you don't get burned(thanks for other reviewers for pointing this out).
the food at the buffet was better than i expected based on previous reviews. it is completely self serve. water, coffee, wine you get them yourself. i've never seen this before. we did all of the 3 ala cartes excellent food and service.
there is a beach bar and bar outside the buffet. the only issue was they ran out of mint for mojitos half way thru our stay. it sounds picky but this is my favorite southern drink. i can't figure out why they don't grow there own mint.
All of the staff including bartenders and maids were friendly and spoke english.
They have shows at night. the thursday acrobatic show was good. the monday show i thought was tacky as the made fun of japenese and german people. they started at 9:30 which was late as i dove early the next day
To me this place has a jamican feel to it rather than british, which i expected. we didn't go off the resort because a sailing excursion was cancelled twice.
i went diving thru the reef oasis dive center and had a great time (see review)
fyi if your from canada you leave through the domestic terminal at the airport so no duty free for booze or souveneirs
