We recently enjoyed ten days at The House and I have to say that writing a review leaves me somewhat torn and I am not really sure how to go about reviewing the hotel because it was neither great nor really bad, so let’s start at the beginning. You arrive at the hotel along a narrow wooden bridge and the... More

We have just returned from two fabulous weeks at the house (1.1.15- 15.1.15), a true home from home that even has it’s own very friendly cat named Ginger! The service provided by all the staff (Andrew, Agnes, Teddy, Christopher, Jefferson and the rest of the team) is second to none. They simply can’t do enough to make your stay as... More

My husband and I visited the House in July 2014 for our honeymoon. We stayed for just over a week in a ground floor ocean view suite which was absolutely stunning. The overriding memory was the attention to detail by all the fabulous staff, they really make your holiday extra special. Nothing is too much trouble. Unfortunately we got caught... More

First off I would like to say that our stay at The House was enjoyable but we just didn't think it lived up to its high TA rating. Having originally been part of the Tamarind which is evident by the passageway past Daphne's to the larger property next door it seems to me that the management realised they could charge... More

Having read so many wonderful reviews about The House we had very high expectations of our stay. Whilst we had a lovely holiday unfortunately The House did not manage to live up to these expectations. The child free environment is fabulous and exactly what we wanted and our room was very pleasant despite initial concerns about its location directly next... More

We stayed at The House in late November/early December, and it was a wonderful stay. Our overriding memory of the holiday was the fantastic service from the staff, particularly Joanna, Andrew, Agnes, Jefferson, Kerri and Charles. They were absolutely fantastic, and really made our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble, and they anticipated our every need. We will definitely return.... More

Hi.....currently staying at "The House", a little pissed off as they just trapped a few of the resident cats and sending them to the pound because a customer complained. Been here 2 days and the cats were not pushy or bothering people, sure they would stay around out hoping for a handout but no bother at all!! If you don't... More

Staff are outstanding and the service is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. There are a lot of added extras included. The atmosphere is really friendly and some how leads to the guests socialising easily amongst themselves. We met some lovely people. Position is superb right on beach. Plenty of Sun beds. Also really well positioned for an array of... More

Stayed for a week as part of a group staying on the island for a birthday celebration. The House exceeded our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the location next to Daphne's was ideal.
