Pros: The hotel was extremely comfortable in all aspects. Arrival made easy, and access to facilities in close proximity especially to the pools and beach. Beds were very comfortable and living spaces were very clean. The security was very good, too. The complex felt small enough to feel bespoke and large enough to feel private. The entertainment programme was varied and superb.
Cons:

Pros: I like the beach, the hammocks, the salad lunches at the Lantern as well as the professional, friendly and prompt responses of most of the staff. I especially like the location of the hotel and being able to hear the waves from my room.
Cons: The grime by the faucet in the bathroom and in the shower of Room 3317 The local young men smoking cigarettes on the beach although it was a non smoking facility One waitress asking me for my Room number before she would seat me as though she didn't believe I was a guest at the hotel, although I did observe that no one else was asked immediately entering the Lantern As a matter of fact one couple seated nearby said they couldn't remember their room number and was told simply to sign and the front desk would be called for their room number.

Disappointing

Pros: Liked the swim up pool. And patio view.
Cons: The location was very awkward... Not near anything... The air conditioning was weak woke up hot a lot. The bed was painfully hard and the comforter was thin and clothy. The towel rack feel off the wall with me just touching it. The fire alarm went off every time I tried to cook something. Then when I touched it to turn it off it just feel right off the wall... The tv was incredibly small and was very staticky... The wifi was the worst... Completely useless on all of our phones and iPads... Might as well didn't have it. It was so bad I was wondering if there was some kind of upgraded wifi I could purchase.. The staff was unfriendly. The main bartender was very cool and friendly very helpful. But the other bartenders act like they didn't want to serve me. Especially one dark skinned bartender was washing dishes right in front of me. It took him 10 minutes to ask me what I want. I just asked for a menu he continued to wash his dishes. Once he finished then he turned around and tossed an menu at me. I'm a bartender I have never seen such rudeness... I don't know if it was because I'm light skinned and he's dark skinned... Or cause the bar was full of white patrons and I was the only person of color siting there but it was absolutely unacceptable... Also the resort had very strict rules. It was two of us that paid for the room we had a friend who lives on the island with us who helped us around and showed us everything and planned our stay. The resort had issues with him being their wanting him to pay... The resort already made well over $10000 American dollars from us plus all the money I spent at the bar. Then to tell us they want more money for our guest to be in the pool with us while we spend our money at the pool for drinks. Or to be in the gym just watching us work out. Then we are told that the resort has a curfew for guest at midnight like I stay in a prison. This made it very uncomfortable.

Pros: This hotel was perfect for families with children. We had a fantastic time so much for the children to do. I want to go back next year.
Cons: Some staff at the pool side bar were not rude but could be more friendly
