Paradise, any time
First, the sunsets really are as good as the website indicates, and you won't be disapointed in the rest of your day either. We (family of four, kids age 10+12) visited in April.
I was impressed by delaporte point - the units all appear to be in great condition, certianly not full, but more occupied and cozier feeling than other developments we saw. We almost always had the pool to ourselves. Both pools are great - very clean (no debris on the bottom), great setup on the pooldeck for lounging around, including comfortable, sturdy, plastic chairs. The second pool has a new rubberized pool deck, which is very comfortable to walk on and looks great.
This unit is very clean, well furnished, with a great layout. the kids shared the large 3rd floor room, we had the master, both have great water views. the beds are in good condition, very comfortable. Rental kitchens can be tricky - this one was well equipped for pots/pans/utensils/glasses, as well as a good quality 4 burner stove, large fridge, microwave. the layout is very convenient with a pass-through bar that made it easy to cook un-interupted, and lay stuff out on the counter for the kids to take out. we ate most meals on the porch with a spectacular water view. I wish the kitchen had some basic supplies like trashbags, paper towels, spices, cooking oil, as it is hard to pick those up in very small amounts.
snorkeling around delaporte point is excellent, when the weather is calm. If the wind is up, it can get quite rough along this stretech, but once it smoothed out I found some of the best beach-accessed snorkeling of the trip, with interesting coral, small and large (and really large) fish.
We did not rent a car, and had no problem getting around by bus, though all our excursions were during the day. There is a large grocery within walking distance, and the bag boys will cart your stuff home for a small tip. The bus was great for day excursions to Love Beach, Paradise Island, Shareaton/Wyndham for their big pool. Stuart cove picked us up for a snorkel and scuba excursion (highly recomend them).
Jefferson was very helpful as we planned our trip, providing good information and recomendations on a range of topics. We found everything to be as he described. If you are planning a trip for sun and sand, I highly recomend Sunset Paradise.
Also recomend: Nirvanna (Love Beach), Stuart Cove's dive or snorkel, Traveler's Rest, and the little bar at the end of SandyPort.
