Hi Maldoc

You should try the Premium Suite or Deluxe Pool Room for best access to the sea. The beaches are usually very calm so as a weak swimmer you should have no problem. As with any tropical destination mosquitoes and sandflies are present and can become a bother after rainy spells. The hotel conducts regular fogging which helps control them. However you are advised to always use repellent during the evening and late afternoon hours. Hope this helps.

Hi

Directions to the main beach are as described above, there's also a tiny stretch of sand in front of the seafront cottages near reception. However, our favourite beach is Ffreyes which is a 5 minute walk away along the main beach + round the bluff at the end. You often get it to yourself,especially in the mornings, the sea is a stunning turquoise + fantastic to swim in, with views of Monserrat on a clear day. On this bluff is Dennis' beach bar + restaurant which serves a good selection of drinks + an extensive range of traditional Caribbean dishes + the usual burgers etc, try the goat curry. There are plenty of sunbeds + umbrellas on the beach, provided for customers. In the evening there is Dennis' restaurant, at the top of the bluff, a more sophisticated menu than the beach bar, but still reasonably priced.

The independent restaurant mentioned is called Sheer + is situated just below the main hotel pool, we haven't eaten there but reports are good although it is pricey.

We really like the hotel food, the choices are extensive at all meals + the dinner menu is on a 3 week rotation so you don't get repeats. If you don't fancy anything on the menu you can go off piste + pay a small supplement for scallops, lobster or fillet steak.

I hope this helps, if you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. We went in July for the 4th time in 6 years, so I think you'll gather that we love the place. If you decide to go, I'm sure you won't be disappointed, just a word of warning, don't expect luxury, the place is shabby chic + that's the attraction for us, it's individual.

We've now been 4 times + the best cottage we ever had was No.10....stunning, uninterrupted sea views + very private with a plunge pool. I would definitely recommend going for a plunge pool cottage, but they are snapped up quite quickly. The premier waterfront cottages look beautiful but are more expensive. I would add that booking a seaview cottage does not guarantee clear views...you may have to stand on tiptoe + peer through the vegetation! However, you do get inclusive A/C

Good luck
