The location is beautiful. However, the resort has some opportunities for improvement. It appears that the resort grew too quickly and the infrastructure did not keep up. The tier system for visitors drives not only available services but also treatment of guests. For example, we ended up visiting during a shareholder meeting. Therefore, we were non-existent. It is impossible to...

The service in the villa was great and the villa itself was nice and clean and updated. I loved the fact that they came and made us breakfast right in our villa everyday. I was disappointed that there was no golf cart available for us during our trip and that Sundays are the only options to having a BBQ at...

We are staying at the Crown Villas right now, and I could not be more disappointed. This place needs a MAJOR overhaul! We are looking to change our flights to get out of here as quickly as possible. Absolutely nothing is as promised - our villa is spacious, but the furnishings and overall feel is really cheap and tired. I...

We enjoyed our stay and found it a good fit for our young family. We had three kids with us and we stayed in a 3 bedroom villa. Having a golf cart was huge- we had a 2 year old with us- and we didn't have to walk everywhere. We also loved the pool in the backyard. The biggest challenge...

Resort has everything, nice beaches, great friendly staff. Beautiful villas with private pools, relax on your own or mix in with the variety of people hanging out in the various spots around the property. Golf, tennis, beach, bars....not much else you could want.

This is a good resort for couples, family or even single. Restaurants are great, the only thing is that you might not be able to get a space at the a la carte restaurant, since you need a reservation. The service is not the same it really depend on who you are dealing with, but overall ok.

All have a private swimming pool, shaded terrace, veranda, kitchen, and a full private bath leading directly off each bedroom. The villas are furnished with rattan, elephant bamboo and a natural Caribbean wattle work and are equipped with air conditioning, overhead fans, and cable television. The Crown Villas are part of the all-inclusive Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort and guests have access to all the facilities of the Resort (excluding the V.I.P areas).
