We visited the orchard during our honeymoon and it was a real treat. After touring and tasting local fruits off the tree, sit back and relax over a great meal! Staff and tour guide were knowledgable and friendly! Could have stayed for hours and ate all their sugar cane!!

Food is very good and it has a great bar. Had been to another Firefly location in Mustique and loved that too. Never stayed overnight but it looks great, with a big inviting pool.

Firefly Planation was a fantastic outing for me and my adult children. It brought me back to my childhood in the West Indies and gave me a chance to share the tastes of the tropics with my children. Keith, the tour guide, was great and provided us with coconuts, sugar cane and guavas, the fruit that was currently in season.... More

We took a tour of the plantation before lunch where we were able to taste in-season fruits straight from the tree, including coconut water and bamboo juice. Our guide was very informative and answered all of my farmer husband's questions. Lunch was excellent. I had the roti (very mild) which was absolutely delicious. My husband and friends also thoroughly enjoyed... More

The setting is tropical elegance. The food is locally grown, fresh caught and excellently prepared. The presentation is flawless. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Pricy, but worth it.

We stopped at Firefly Plantation for lunch and their tour. Lunch was to a good standard for both food and prices and the view, as views tend to be on Bequia, terrific. The highlight for us, however, was the garden tour, at $10 EC, maybe the best bargain on the island. Keith, the gardener, is the least polished good tour... More

I just want to say I love your review, thank you so much. It made me laugh, the lovey way you describe Keith and the pig (Percy is his name by the way) coming out of the bananas. You sum it all up perfectly! I am so glad you enjoyed it, please do come back. More

Beautiful setting and great service with very friendly staff who could not do enough for us. The guest rooms are huge, ours had a king sized four poster bed, very luxurious. We appreciated all the care our lovely maid put into the room.

We went to visit the plantation and we were not disappointed... Keith, the head gardener showed us around. He is a really nice, quiet, local man, who couldn't do more for us, even climbing a cocunut tree to get us a fresh coconut. The plantation has an authentic feel with local people bringing in the seasonal produce. We were struck... More
