Reasons for trip

Relaxation

Voted the 'Worlds Most Romantic Resort' for couples only. It is situated on Dickenson Bay which has white soft sands like talc and clear seas like glass.Is it all inclusive with 11 restaurants,6 pools and 7 bars to choose from. The food is excellent! Wherever you sit, either by the pool or on the beach the staff are constantly asking you what you would like to drink. For those that want to do more than just sunbathe there is a choice of unlimited land and water sports. The staff are extremely attentive and very friendly. Our room was Caribbean Grande Luxe Poolside Room and we had a large 4 poster bed which was very comfortable. Flowers and plants abound and soft music piped around the grounds have the speakers disguised as rocks! Every night there is music entertainment. There are many honeymooners and weddings are taking place daily in the grounds but there are also older people enjoying the restful ambience. Security staff patrol the grounds 24hours and the many staff are constantly cleaning and gardening. The only gripe I had was that the open beachside restaurant Bayside was plagued with black birds, on the tables, the seats, flying everywhere and attempting to peck at the open buffet food. I did not care to sit on seats where birds had pooped! They had a member of staff with a big stick trying to shoo them away..which was useless. I did complain to a manager!
