First the not so good ; yes it needs updating, much of the place needs some TLC , furniture needs replacing etc . Our room was a... More

My sister & I stayed here for a week in July. This is the nicest beach we have seen so far. The water is so clear & calm - we bought rafts - so relaxing! It was the off season so the beach was pretty bare. No problem with getting a chair. We had a queen superior room. It was... More

A nice resort. The beach will/should be your focal point during your stay. The service is very good. The staff very much takes great effort to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are average, the beds are decent, could be better. The all-inclusive features of the buffet provide a decent variety of foods. Eat at 2 of the 3 a'... More

A very nice resort, clean, friendly and with a fantastic beach. We got a kick start at the check in counter where they were ready with a rum punch for all of us upon arrival. We would love to come back sometime!

We visited in 2011 and decided to go back again this year. Not much had changed, still the best place to stay in Antigua!! The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. I love the range of food particularly Lydia's, Bocciolo's & the grill at lunch time is fab! The pools are exceptionally clean and the beach is just amazing!... More

I had been looking forward to our stay because a friend indicated they had "day" tickets when in Antigua a number of years ago so I am sure fine then but it has taken a very sad turn. The rooms were tiny and out of the dark ages. You couldn't even turn in the shower. Mosquitos filled the bedrooms. Air... More
