Older, charming. Excellent people working there. Very proud and informative. Could easily become an all around 5 star resort. Would like to return... Beds are very hard. Many areas in need of maintenance or repairs. The undesirable things I've seen, in my opinion, are due to understaffing.
The buffet breakfast, facilities, rooms, location were all very nice The only drawback was the ocean (lagoon) was not clean. If you enjoy swimming in the ocean, I wouldn't recommend the hotels in the center of Barra either as the beaches slope steeply.
