I wanted to post this because as a "newbie" I have stalked this message board since Feb. I visited Oct. 3rd-7th for my birthday. I must say that we had a room in the Great House. 5206 to be exact....wonderful view. You could see the ocean, and see who was at the pool bar. The room was simple but very clean. Each person that we came in contact with that worked there was so nice and seemed very happy to work there. It actually made me feel bad that I couldn't tip them but we did tip with mini snickers.
Here is my one and only complaint but was a deal breaker for my fiance. My fiance does not fly. We always drive to a port and cruise every year. I finally convinced him to do this trip and after countless hours of research I chose this place. His only concern for me booking anywhere was that he could get his Hennessy or Grey Goose. Needless to say he was pissed. I did not let him buy duty free alc from the airport because I was positive that they would have it. Well the only place they have premium liquor is the martini bar which is only open from 6-10pm.....false advertisement in my opinion. Oh and they ran out of the good stuff really quick. There was no restocking until the next day. Personally it did not make or break my trip but for him it did.
Overall, very peaceful, beautiful almost perfect vacation.
