A bit rough round the edges and a small pool but I would heartily recommend..

The food was excellent varied and service was very good and very friendly. We were travelling with our just turned 1 year old. The animation courtesy of the infamous Fenton and co a lot of fun. I think the week we were there the resort was at 60% capacity and this helped us to really appreciate the location. Had it been at 100% then the pool would have felt small with not enough beds to go around. The room was comfortable and we were poolside. I really could have hit the beach with a stone and this is the real magic of this resort its proximity to one of the best beaches I have ever been on. I took advantage of the hobbie cat and windsurfer that were included as part of our all inclusive package it was a nice area all round. Taxis to get anywhere were expensive and the all inclusive option was the best value for money as people regretting not doing that found out. We had an awesome 2 weeks and felt really sad to leave what we felt had become friends in some ways. We will return to Antigua for sure.
The evening entertainment was as to be expected and a little tame for us but the fire dancers were really top notch. The top of the world hosted a dance evening we had to miss unfortunately. I would say the resort is family friendly and would very much recommend it.
If you are planning on diving then try and arrange for a shop that will pick you up so the taxi doesn't make it an expensive dive. Jolly harbour is the best bet for getting a dive.
We also missed the Shirley Heights gig it seemed to darn expensive for what it was.
