They said the tap water... More

Virgin put us here for 3 nights all inclusive when we had problem with our flight. Hotel rooms bit dated but was clean and had everything we needed. Food and drink was lovely at each sitting - buffet style. Staff were very helpful.

Positives: beautiful scenery and beach, delicious food, less crowds because it's a smaller resort, swim-up bar (Kurby is the best bartender!) Negatives: dated accommodations, poor service on check-in (we had already traveled for hours and then had to wait another 30-40 minutes while our room was figured out), endless driving!!!! This resort is at the top of the island. The... More
