The beach is a little rocky but very calm waters and plenty of chairs, including in the shade. Snorkeling was great. The restaurant at the property had ok (not to be confused with great) food, but the service was atrocious. There were Dutch couples there sitting around us who arrived after us already ordering a desert while we were still waiting for the appetizer (mine never arrived as the waiter messed up the order). Then, there was another waiter who came out and asked, quite rudely "what I wanted now." At that point, we decided not to come back. The drinks are also quite watered down. If you go, it may not be a bad idea to shop for breakfast and luch at the local supermarket (you need a car).
The villa was very spacious and generally nice, aside from dirty upholstered furniture, poor TV reception and lack of toilettries (go to the supermarket). However, it was a very good value.
Dining was great at Fishalicious in Wilhelmstad.
check your bill carefully at check-out (ours contained a charge for a crib we never requested. There is a $75 charge for late check-out and no decent shower anaywhere aside from the rooms.
Have plenty of bug spray - they are nasty and we are still itching.
The island is beauitiful, but they are not yet ready to cater to American tourists, at list not at Blue Bay
My husband played golf at the resort and the course was beautiful.
Driving is interesting - just go, as the locals do, at will!
overall it was a good value, much cheaper than Aruba.
