This apartment was great. It was spacious, clean and was perfect for a family. We travelled with my 10 month old son and it was big enough for him to have a little play area. It also had umbrellas and beach chairs which was great for the beach! Very clean too!
Ultimately, we found your property to suit our needs just fine in terms of a nice place to shower and spend evenings in our room. However, if we ever wanted to do anything else (eat, swim, hot tub, put our toes in the sand, etc.) we needed to leave the property altogether. Had we known this we would have simply rented a condo or an apartment somewhere else on the island where we could get all of the same "amenities" that we were provided (i.e. nothing) and on top of it all we would have saved a significant amount of money in the process.
Here's an overview of all of the issues with the property that were NEVER communicated to us before our arrival.
1. No beach access - this was something that we found to be very appealing about the property when we were searching for places to stay on our vacation. Not only was it completely blocked off for the duration of our stay, but there really was no solution provided for the inconvenience. We were simply told to drive over to the St. Regis and use their public parking lot close by. The trouble with this was that their parking lot only held about 5-6 cars and was always full when we tried to go over there.
2. The hot tub was broken for the duration of our stay. When we inquired about why the hot tub wasn't working we were told that they needed to order a part and it would be fixed on Friday. Well, Friday rolled around it was still broken and would remain broken until we left. Again, this was a selling point to us when we were looking for places to stay. We were quite disappointed.
3. The pool was freezing cold. We basically couldn't get in the water while we were staying at the resort. It was beyond uncomfortable and we were not the only guests to notice.
4. Lack of food options - The main restaurant was under construction. The Happy Talk Lounge only served breakfast on Sundays and the pool bar was only open Friday-Monday from 12:00pm - 6:00pm. All things we were under the impression were open more frequently.
If I were to do it again I would not stay here. I'd get a condo for 1/3 the price because that's basically all you're being provided here anyway.
