    when i was there in september people were swimming all over the place. i would ask the resort.

      I'm pretty sure the resort is swimable. I think what most people tend to complain about is the look of their beach is not your typical tropical ocean etc etc... They put sand bags in in order to make it swimable though. I believe, but yes Leigh is right I would check with the resort.

              Like Jackie said, I don't think its unswimmable, but the sandbags they had to put in aren't pretty. I think they put them in after the hurricane, but I could be wrong.

                Hi Sheaa! I am also an EDR bride, we are getting married there March 24th. I am not sure what you are looking for in a resort but can tell you that the people at the resort have been really wonderful so far! Everyone is really responsive and helpful.
                I have never heard that the beach is unswimmable but did hear that it can be a little rocky, the other girls are right in saying that there are sandbags in the ocean in order to make it safer to swim (there was some damage done to the ocean floor in the hurricane I believe?).
                Hope I can help with your questions, let me know!

                  Well, I guess I have liked everything I heard about the resort then.... and it would be perfect if the beach was nice and you were able to swim there.

                  I did notice too that none of the pictures of the beach had any lawnchairs or beach activities.... I know I would want beach volleyball, and it would be nice to have the options of jetskis, parasailing etc.... I guessing it is not available here, otherwise they would list it like other resorts. I realize that they focus on relaxing though... I will have to look into it more.

                  Does anybody know about any sunset cruises, or catamaran cruises at or near this resort? I took one in Jamacia once and it was amazing. I would like to take my guests on one, but again it doesn't look like the resort offers anything like this.
