Set on the gold coast (western shores), all rooms ocean front, commanding a wide swath of the beach with a large roped in swim area, this place has the right stuff. Service was commendable, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We arrived on managers welcome night for complimentary champagne. Thoughtful touches such as lavender scented towels or fruit smoothie samples... More

We have been staying close to the Royal Pavilion for the last 2 weeks and have been fortunate to have Beach Club passes at the hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful ,so much so ,that we have been considering staying there on a future visit to the island. Then along came Livingstone, he was singularly unfriendly, officious and... More

Dear brianjwest, We have noted your feedback and our sincere apologies for your experience on the beach. Although what Livingstone did is part of his duty which is to ensure that beach beds in front of the hotel and the towels are not used any non-resident guests, that said there is always scope of getting the message across in a...

What makes this resort superlative is the location; steps from the white sand, the sound of waves crashing in your room, the unobstructed views of the sea. The concierge team was amongst the best I have encountered. They were patient, had a variety of suggestions, and managed to secure us last minute reservations. Our room was immaculate. I can't begin... More

Let’s start with the good news. This is an excellent Hotel. Great location, great staff, very nice rooms and I rather like the shade of pink it’s painted in. I can’t praise the place highly enough. All rooms have a sea view - the hotel is next to the beach. Earplugs are a must for nighttime as the tree frogs... More
