Thought I would give my review while still fresh on my mind.

Stayed at West Bay Club! Awesome. Ocean front room right above the the walkway to the ocean perfect view. We were on the 4th floor so no obstruction in the view.

My only complaint on the hotel was that we took a 5AM flight from Dallas to arrive by 12pm. Check in was in was supposed to be 11:00. We arrived at 12:30 after no sleep, because we had to leave for the airport at 2:30. Our room was not ready. They said the room would be ready around 3:00. That was not a good way to start a vacation. They told us to use the bathroom around the corner to change into our swimsuits and go down to the beach. No, I am not leaving all of my belongings, cash and jewelry just sitting in the open air lobby. We didn't want to get angry, so politely told them no that is not going to work. We went and had lunch, came back, still no room ready. After a serious discussion, they let us put our stuff in a large suite, change our clothes and we had a key and safe to lock up our stuff.
SUGGESTION: Before you arrive, let your hotel know what time you will arrive! Explain your expectations of check in and time.

All things were great, water, weather our hotel and dining.

My favorite things:
- Dining at Infinity on our Anniversary.
- We brought blow up rafts from home (great idea) floating on the ocean. All day, every day. I tan easy. I needed SPF 50 the entire time not to burn. Yes, I still got very, very, tan.
- Talking to all the other visitors.
- Bugaloos !!!
- Driving around the island to different resorts to check it out and take pics. Definitely rent a car. We drove at night ONCE. Our headlights on our car didn't work well, scared the poop out of us, so we only did that once.

Notes: Meals are expensive! Get over it and have fun. Don't get to caught up on the pricing or you won't have fun. If you are on a very tight budget maybe go to a different island. We had a great time and didn't go crazy with money but spent about $900 on food and gas for 6 days. (no alcohol included in this price) We had free breakfast everyday at the hotel, that was great. Oh, ice tea is not free refills, each tea was $3.00 or 3.50 per tea.

I would be happy to answer any questions. I don't want to write a novel.
would I go again. Definitely! Would I stay at the same place, yes! Are there other resorts that I would recommend, yes! Depending what you want in atmosphere, budget, beach and budget.

Hate that it is over! But great memories made!!!
