Relaxing place, great staff, but not as advertised

Been to Jamaica 4 times now for a winter retreat, different resort each time.
Atmosphere: Smaller more laid-back resort. The staff was incredibly friendly; the bartenders were fun and kept the drinks flowing.
Food: The buffet food was ok. The food at the reservation restaurants was great, the French restaurant and the Sushi bar were excellent.
Room: A standard room. So-so beds. The room had very little lighting. The handles in the shower kept falling off.
Beach: The beach is small. If you wade out about 15 feet, you will probably step on a sea urchin, as there are 1000’s. The Snorkeling was so-so. It was too choppy to scuba dive and use a Hobie Cat when we were there. They don’t allow the Kayaks to go out past the swimming area, which defeats the purpose of kayaking.
False Advertising: The Nude side had better amenities, and a much better beach, sandy all the way out. However, what they don’t tell you on the website is you are not allowed access to the Nude side. It’s virtually 2 separate resorts. For access, you have to pay a hefty “upgrade” fee per day or take out a second mortgage for a 4 hour pass to the beach! They should tell you this on the website. So if you’re looking for a place with a nude beach, look elsewhere, there are better resorts in Jamaica.
Overall, I liked a few other resorts I've stayed at better, but it was a relaxing getaway.
