I have not stayed there, but I have used there beach to snorkel from. The have a great reef there and a first class dive facility. The resort itself is very charming looking and the beach is a grey volcanic sand. I am dying to go back and stay there one day. Very peaceful and the views are excellent. If you snorkel or dive or are looking for a quiet romantic retreat, I would definitely stay here.

Very romantic, exotic hotel with incredible views of the Pitons located on a remote black sand beach. But, be prepared to climb plenty of steps as the rooms are located up a very steep hill.

E is very much correct.
We stayed there and loved the place, but there is a lot of climbing to be done.
The better rooms are farther up on the mountainside, and require an arduous trip up many steps and a long hill to get back to your room. We forgot something once we got to the beach, and it took my husband 30 minutes to make the climb to the room and back to the beach.
The food was great and the diving and snorkeling were the best on the island.
The resort is very romantic, and we felt a good value for the $$$.
It is a bit isolated and accessible best by water taxis.
Let me know if you have more specific questions...

Thanks Anon!
I love the Caribbean, and I love helping people who travel there - whether it's for the first time or the hundredth!
So many experiences people have can be so much better if they take the time to research the places they are thinking of going.
I only wish this forum had been available to me before I made some hilarious mistakes

We spent the day at the resort while we were on a cruise and loved it. There were stairs, but if you're in decent shape, you'll be fine. They have alot of nature tours and acitivities and the food was very good. It was romantic and the scenery was beautiful.
