You know that moment, when you walk into a spa for the first time? And you size-up the room, realize how nice it is, and think to yourself, “Oh yeaaaaah“?
The resort’s 1-year-old spa is just gorgeous (my photos don’t do it justice). It’s about 30 feet from a quiet stretch of Caribbean beach, and you can opt to have the doors open and listen to the crashing waves – real ones, not ones on a CD – during your treatment. Do it!
What works for families:
Being an adults-only resort, we’re talking families with grown children here. I think what’s best for families is the all-inclusive part. Pay one price, and you’re done. If your kids want to eat 10 times a day, or drink Red Stripe beer or rum all night, let ’em. It’s no extra cost to you.
I liked the spread-out, U-shaped layout, which created lots of quiet, private nooks – nice for alone time or private family time. During my visit, no one was riding the resort’s water slide, and hardly anyone was by the pools. Instead, everyone flocked to the scenic beach, ordering from the (free) beach-side fresh fruit smoothie bar, lazing on one of the many beach chairs, or taking advantage of the free paddleboards and kayaks.
