We spent the first week of December here and had an absolutely lovely time. The hotel is beautifully situated on a secluded bay. The rooms are nice (although I would agree with other reviewers that it helps to choose the right one - this was our second stay and we liked the room we had this time much more than... More

Basically two sides to the hotel. The kids side in the old part and the new section where the generally stick the adults. alas we got the former. Rooms are a good size but very basic in terms of finishing and furnishing. They use a lot of restoration hardware products which is like glorified ikea, for a '5 star' property... More

Our stay at this beautiful resort was a wonderful relaxing experience. From the attractive buildings, beautiful tropical gardens, excellent friendly service and our lovely beach front room we were in heaven. The long crescent palm fringed beach is really beautiful, as are the surrounding mountains, making for a dramatic backdrop to the whole resort. All the facilities are immaculate and... More

We stayed at the resort from 29th of November for 10 nights, travelled as a couple in our mid 40's (just to put the review in context). It was a fantastic time to go, nice and peaceful even though it is a hotel that caters for families with young children. The moment we arrived we felt the peace and tranquility,... More

The food, the staff, the decor, the service, the rooms, the tennis, the gym, the location, the setting, the included activities, the breakfasts, the tea-time, the reasonable choices for dining...what could anyone possibly find to fault about this property? Everything already mentioned about children (toddlers were all we saw) is dead-on, but the resort separates adults from families and it... More

An excellent hotel in every respect. Suites are very well appointed, clean, comfortable and well serviced. Beach and sea are probably the best in Antigua and most of the Caribbean, with iced water buckets, fruit etc. served free on the beach, as is afternoon tea. Food is very good, especially breakfast which is all freshly cooked and served to you.... More
