We were in the Island Grand portion of the resort, beach view rooms, room was a suite with a mini kitchen (including full size fridge). We stayed for a week and had an amazing time. The beach is beautiful and we never even made it to the pools. Get in line early to reserve the beach cabanas (two lounge chairs with some canvas shade), we had ones in the front row looking at the beach which were great. The only downside (and these are minor), is that the elevators are very slow, especially when checking out, and also I wish it was a non-smoking resort. Someone was always smoking on the beach, balconies, or outside eating areas, and it was frustrating. Also, I would not reserve a pool-view room unless you are ok with lots of noise and activity.
