Fodor's Review

This exceedingly well-run time-share property seductively straddles a 600-foot beach on the less hectic East End. Casual elegance prevails throughout, from granite accents to four-poster beds in the newer units. Each villa has a roomy terrace facing the sea; two-bedroom units can be partitioned, but even the studio has Wi-Fi, a DVD player, microwave and fridge. Every year brings improvements: advance online check-in, hurricane-guarantee policy, spa and gym, and the only

place offering power-assisted snorkeling on DPVs (Dive Propulsion Vehicles), and daily car rentals. The resort is almost obsessively maintained. You always see a smiling staffer with a paintbrush or hedge clippers. This cordial, mellow yet efficient service is a major selling point. Kids love when concierges conduct regular fish feedings at the dock or local artisans demonstrate techniques. The famous "Barefoot Man" performs his lighthearted country-calypso songs on Caribbean life at Pelican Reef on Thursdays, luring lively locals.
