We recently stayed 2 weeks at this fabulous hotel for our daughters wedding which was organised brilliantly by Lisa who had thought of every little detail. The whole event went off without any problems. Wedding reception on the terrace was excellent, with the table decorated beautifully. All our rooms were spotless and well maintained on a daily basis. The 3... More

The rooms were huge and always cool and clean. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The beach was great with... More

We stayed in April for 9 nights to celebrate my 50th birthday and had a fabulous time. Upgraded on arrival to a beach side apartment that meant my wife and I had our own bedroom and ensuite bathroom from our 13yr old daughter. Perfect. Lovely views from the balcony and the room had its own bar which was restocked daily!... More

Special mention to Jo-ann who helped make our transition from a different hotel go swiftly and easily, thank you. Have already told friends to visit and hopefully going back next year,... More

I think i'm repeating my last review - this is our 3rd visit and each time it just gets better!! I'll start with the food. It is definitely more Bajan orientated than before which is great. Shontel the head chef arranged some special local dishes for us - including the Flying Fish and Cou Cou. Brilliant! A big thanks to... More
