Sue and Gary just came back on Sunday from a GLORIOUS stay at this upscale beach retreat!!! We have been fortunate to have stayed at every Sandals and Beaches property in the Caribbean. Under the direction of General Manager Mr. Peter Fraser, this resort is at the TOP of the Sandals list and likely will be the number one all-inclusive resort anywhere. The hotel layout is just about perfect combining rooms, pools, waterfalls with enough open space without feeling cramped. The mostly Grenadian staff excels at customer service and greets every guest with a warm genuine smile and hello. We stayed in a Honeymoon One Bedroom Butler Suite with Private Pool and hot tub!!! Our room was beautiful and our butlers were among the best that ever served us. The resort food was excellent and is a step above other all-inclusives. The French restaurant served the best Lamb Chops, Foie Gras and Escargot. Butch’s Steakhouse had the best Filet Mignon we ever had in the Caribbean, hands down. Soy Sushi Bar has superb Japanese food. We went for appetizers and stayed for a full dinner ordering Sushi, Sashimi and Tempura along with excellent Cosmopolitans. I taught the hot dog guy how to make a Texas Hot Weiner and it was tasty with no indigestion afterwards (the usual after dog experience). We are BEACH people and spend the majority of our time playing Scrabble and having Vodka and Tonics. The beach is not huge but easily accommodates guests with drink service for everyone. We enjoyed a scuba dive to the Underwater Sculpture Park (additional cost for park entrance) but were a little disappointed because the artwork was not as colorful as the photos on the park’s website. The island is a little difficult to get to but well worth the effort. We will BE BACK!!!
