If you are looking for luxury accommodation this is the place to go. Situated on the western side of the island it is less windy that the eastern side and the snorkeling is great here. It pays to use reef shoes though. All rooms are very comfortable and serviced daily.The grounds are beautifully maintained. Has a wonderful turn down service... More

Perfect spot on the beach for watching the sunset. Very friendly staff, food and drinks great. Everything clean, everything worked. Ten minutes from the airport, 50 years from the real world. Hired some bicycles, swam, ate, read, slept. Repeat.

Had a lovely week at Crown. With a small amount of rooms set in lovely well maintained grounds you aren't surrounded by people. The restaurant/bar staff were so lovely and helpful. The groundsman were all so friendly and kept the place immaculate. Reception, most of them were nice, one girl wasn't that enthusiastic to be there and there was a... More

We just returned after a 6 night stay and had a great time. The staff were nice enough to upgrade us to a villa with a plunge pool. The room was amazing and very secluded. It is definetly worth it to pay the extra money to get this over the standard room. In my opinion it's like night and day.... More

What a beautiful location full of exotic flowers and smiling faces. There just are no words that can truly describe these people who are dedicated to make your stay unforgettable! We loved the bungalow style accomodation and the food was excellent and the evening entertainment was very special. We will return!!!!

Fantastic resort .Awesome staff and superb swimming pool.Windjammer restaurant we would rate possibly the best on the island and we went to many. Only complaint we had were the cushions on the outside poolside and beachfront loungers for a resort of this magnitude were very poor. Like sitting or lying on a rock.

If you want somewhere that you can be as busy or as laid back as you want to be then this is the place. The price is a little more that most resorts on the island but what you get for the extra price is what makes it. Breakfast is included in the price and there is a $250 resort... More

Attended Island night with a group of friends who stay on the island. As a visitor they said that this would be a good show and meal. I must admit arriving to Crown Beach such an amazing property. We walked down towards the restaurant and the meal had started so that was good. We duly paid our subscription - bought... More

My 2 bedroom, beachfront bungalow with pool was brilliant - everything you could want and excellent views. The garden courtyard bungalow with pool - again excellent.
