Stayed here over New Year. The location is on the NE coast, so it is pretty breezy with the prevailing winds. The overall impression is that the place needs a bit of a makeover, but is by no means bad.

Our room, to illustrate this, was a bit 'tired' - for example, there was a large rust-stain where the enamel had become de-laminated around the plug-hole in the bath/shower, and one of the bed lamps didn't have a switch: one had to plug it in when needed. We had a fridge delivered (apparently they thought we'd asked for it, but we hadn't!) and it was exactly what you'd find in a bed-sit in a university town - you know the sort of thing I mean.

These minor niggles were compensated - totally compensated - by the unfailingly cheerful and good-natured staff, who went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable. The Manager (Paualo) was extremely welcoming and attentive. Unlike Liz's experience we found the food to be excellent throughout - particularly at the Pineapple Grill. Drinks are available all day, there is a coffee/tea machine by the main restaurant which you can just keep going to for refills and there's a little burger/hot dog stall which opens in the afternoon - and then again very late at night.

The New Year celebrations were very good indeed - a very comprehensive and varied buffet meal followed by a good-quality band and fireworks on the beach. I felt that the Resort did more than they actually needed to - which always leaves a good impression.

In short, a great place in need of some refurbishment - I've stayed at the St James' Club before, which is several rungs up the ladder, but I actually enjoyed this rather more - mainly because of the staff.

A week sadly was enough in paradise for me, they laughably state they have 3 restuartants, the Grill is only open a few days a week and the other two are in the same location but with different coloured napkins to diferentiate. The meat was cheap cuts and never arrived hot and the selection was poor. You couldn't eat your breakfast without being invaded by birds - in fact that bad they were having to put cling film over the sugar sachets on each table. But the beach was beautfil and the staff couldn't have been more polite. They are supposedly being taken over by Sandals and I get the impression they're now letting the place 'go' until that date.

I have read many reviews on the hotel and so far they have never come to a definate result. So mine will.

The resort is beautiful, I opted for the Ocean Front Room (not the cheapest or the most expensive available)and it was fantastic! The view from the balcony was spectacular with panoramic views over Long Bay whilst you watched the Pelicans, Frigate Birds and Ospreys hunt in these shallow waters. If you are into snorkeling this is the best place i have been so far. The water is clear and there are coral reefs just off of the beach.

The hotel has 180 rooms each generously fitted with a huge bed (Super King) or two double beds on request. Each has a shower, cable TV, Free safe, Phone... and all other main appliences. Being an all inclusive resort there are a choice of 5 Rsteraunts / Snack Bars. These are the Topaz Resteraunt, A La Carte Resteraunt, Snack Bar, Mary's Outhouse (Ribs and Chicken) and the Pineapple Grill all Free!

The bar is all free including premium drinks.

There are also 2 swimming pools one for kids and one purely for adults. All non-motorized watersports are free (hobie cats, canoes, snorkeling etc) however a seperate company can provide you with Jet Skis.

Overall the hotel, the island and the beaches are superb and do not listen to any other bad reviews i am the latest person to go here and they have really tidied themselves up. For one reason. The hotel is likely to be sold to Sandals within the year so the upkeep is very solid however mine or your holiday is/was affected.

One good thing to do though is hire a car. The taxi prices are extreme $75US to go 12 miles into St.Johns (40)or $150Us to go to English Harbour alternitivly hire a car for $135 whilst you are there (2 days)
