Planning this trip, I was searching for reviews focusing more on the kids/family aspect of the resort. Since there weren't very many, I have decided not to review the food, rooms, or bartenders - instead this is all about questions parents may have when selecting this resort for their family vacation (and I apologize, it's going to be long!) We...

This hotel was a nice fit for our large group. 6 adults and 5 children(range from 6mnths to 3years). We felt we received what we paid for and everyone slept well, ate well and enjoyed the beautiful beach and pool. There were limited extra frills to the hotel but we all felt that you did not feel you were missing...

Great dual family vacation spot. Hotel was very accommodating to get three rooms side by side on same floor. The property has seen better days, but was really clean and service was always pleasant and helpful. Lots of great drinks and food for everyone. Always lots of shady spots available by beach or pool. Great lunch patio and fun tunes...

It was nice but not great. The entertainers were ok. Not super involved with the guests. The food was ok except for the Jerk center. That was wonderful! I could eat there every day. Volleyball on beach was hot, out of the way and overall very uninviting. Nobody went there and we are a volleyball family so that was disappointing....

We stayed here on a whim for 5 nights. I had a great time, everyone (fellow travelers and staff) was so friendly. Food was good, wouldn't recommend Picasso as an a-la-cart choice but the Japanese was great. I would go back.
