No other resort will hold a candle to the Lone Star. We stayed in the Buick. It exceeded our expectations for comfort, quality, and convenience. The king bed was comfortable, the bedroom and bathing areas were spacious, the outside balcony/deck were perfect when we needed away from the sun and the hospitality SUPERLATIVE! I loved that the resort was small and that we were not subsidizing the activities of other people. We had our pick of where to lounge on the beach. The other visitors staying at the resort were friendly, respectful travelers. Liesel, Kristian and Camille worked hard to book activities (golf, massage, personal trainer, catamaran, restaurants, drivers etc), answer our queries and checked in with us throughout the day to ensure we were having a great time. I will say that it was noticeable when Kristian had a day off. The beach service was not up to his standard because he delivers a rare level of excellence. We also missed his jokes and fun! We were able to swim out and snorkel without a tour, in order to see a stingray and a sea turtle. I do recommend buying fresh aloe vera at the beginning of the week from one of the beach vendors. It saved my skin. The housekeeping staff were timely, kept us stocked in toiletries and fresh towels, as well as bottled water. I would book for Christmas, but they are already full which made my heart sink. We cannot wait to return to the Lone Star. The staff have high standards, but they are not uppity or snooty. We slept like dead people and the room was quiet save for the sound of the surf. They are a staff comprised of fun, professional and caring individuals. My only quibble is that I am a coffee addict and there was no coffee maker in the room. I awoke at 7 am daily and coffee was not available at the restaurant until 8:30 am. I would have loved to have enjoyed my coffee out on the deck whilst my lover slept in. I would suggest having in room coffee or a coffee service set up in the restaurant from 6 am on. I researched a lot of places before choosing the Lone Star and we have absolutely no regrets!
