Hi Blondecaper...this is a great resort but HUGE! The beach in front is all coral and rocks not useable, if you go in water shoes are a must. It is very murky. There is a beach over the far side to the left(if you standing beside the pool) Plenty of loungers but you can only go out about to your waste before you hit sea grass. Food is amazing. The halls are lined with carpet.Pools are huge but you will need to be there early for shade and a lounger. I was there late April and the pools were just to hot for me. The bars are amazing especially the outdoor main lobby one. Lots going one and great views. The beach grill serves really wonderful jerk chicken, just be careful adding the extra sauces...HOT HOT HOT, just put some on the side. The steel drum band there at lunch is what Jamaica is all about. Just makes you want to get up and dance. Enjoy your trip.
