    We've been here before so we already knew that the rooms are worn, that there's no WiFi in the room (and in the public areas where there is - it's poor), that the grounds need more attention, and that the public restrooms near the sports desk are disgusting. The boats are also awful, with uncomfortable plastic benches. We returned anyway because the view is spectacular, the pools are fantastic, and the food at the restaurant is OK and reasonably-priced. Having no other such island resort option near PP, we'll likely be back.

    Stayed here for 3 nights 4 days and My husband and I had a great time. Although, I wouldn’t stay here longer than that. There’s no planned activities during the day and we kinda got bored on the 3rd day. It’s about an hour boat ride from the main land so you need to pretty much eat and chill on the resort. Food was great and they were very accommodating to all our needs. The spa was amazing and I got the best massage there. Wish they had a gym or planned activities during the day. Connection isn’t that great and only worked near the reception area. I felt really bad for the other restaurant staff cause I generally would tip a lot and there was this was staff member that kept taking over our table even though we were first served by someone else. The bartenders were all nice and were really good at their job. Better than bartenders I see here in Canada. Overall the stay was great and would take the kids here next time.
