Jessie's Sugar Beach Cons:
The resort is an hour from the airport, and the drive is bumpy.
The Luxury Sugar Mill Rooms are small for the price.
The plunge pools are small.
The resort sprawls over hundreds of acres, and you will likely need to call for rides to get where you want to go.
It is less sustainable than other resorts nearby.
There is a portion of the beach reserved for guests of Ladera Resort.
It's not adults only.
Sugar Beach is A-Listers' favorite (Matt Damon got married at the resort.), so it is pricey.
Stray cats around the resort can be annoying
