    we liked the swimming pool and spent most of the time by it. Unfortunately we did not know that in June the ocean on the south side of the island is pretty active and it did not allow us to swim.

    The location is nice. The food was good at all the restaurants. I did not like that I could not bring a lounge chair on to the sand and had to keep it on the grass area.

    The resort was very nice. Great pools with plenty of chairs. The beach was extremely nice and clean.
