Well upon arrival i wanted to leave almost immediately,but it was after an 8 hour flight. And i was feeling irritable. Anyway after dinner went to bed. Next morning after a good breakfast. Went to the beach. Wow.Very nice. Now some people say this is the best beach on the island. It's nice,but there are better ,in terms of Crystal clear water. Yes this resort is really dated.But it did grow on me very gradually. I wouldn't go back. But i did enjoy my stay. I rented a car which IMO,you need to do.Although all inclusive i like to explore the country I'm in. And would have gone slightly mad if i had to stay in 1 place for 12 days. So the good things. Clean room. Nice beach. Good enough food.Good evening entertainment. Good staff. The bad things. Very old and shabby. Food not very well presented. When some food choices ran out. That was it.Not replaced. Very noisy depending on which block they put you in.Oh,and i never knew anyone got up at 5am in the Caribbean to claim a beach umbrella. But they did.😂😂. It's a big resort with over 600 people. Like I said. I made the best of it. But i wouldn't go back. There are much better all inclusive on Antigua. It's 3 star possibly 2.5.And to it's credit,it's not pretending to be anything else.1 last thing,a small piece of the dinning room ceiling,fell into my cornflakes bowl 1 morning 😂😂😂.I couldn't stop laughing.
