Stayed for 5 nights at the Crown Beach to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The arrival at the airport certainly set the scene for an island holiday, very welcoming. We had a 1 bedroom villa, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. The grounds are pristine, beautifully kept. The beachfront is cleaned each morning and there are plenty of loungers and a... More

Just amazing. Nice spot on the beach, romantic, relaxing and staff were very lovely. I would defiantly recommend and stay again. The grounds are looked after with love and the staff are so friendly. It was like a 2nd home. Well better than my home anyway. One thing that needs improvement is breakfast and please get new beds.

This resort is lovely, set in beautiful gardens with wonderful flowers. We were upgraded to a one bedroom beachfront villa which was amazing. Absolutely beautiful views and setting. The villa had so much space and was nicely decorated. Large living area, bedroom and extra large bathroom. It was very clean, airy, big bed (comfy), and plenty of room with a... More

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
