I have read prior reviews indicating that photos can not prepare one for the actual beauty of the resort. I have to agree 100% ~ truly amazing! We stayed in Sundancer for 3 nights December 19-22 and could not imagine a better cabin or location. Although the location is beautiful, the staff are truly the reason that we had such... More

We cannot explain how much we loved our stay at The Caves- everything from the service, food, grounds, room, spa was the best. Aside from the staff (Camar, Delmar, Alex, Albert, Partick and others)- we loved our time hiding out in the nooks along the cliffs under an umbrella or in the sun. Snorkeling, kayaking and the bit of cliff... More

The Caves is an exquisite honeymoon location! We were completely thrilled with everything about this resort. From the beautiful room (Bird's Nest), to the wonderful food, the great service, and the awesome views... it couldn't have been better! We especially loved dinnertime- candle-lit, sea-side, under the stars, incredibly beautiful! Visit the Caves, you won't be disappointed!!!

This was our second trip to the Caves, and it was even better the second time! Camar, one of the bartenders summed it up best; he said "See, they are like family now." And that's just how you feel at the Caves, like you've come back to visit your island family. The staff takes great care of you, but more... More

Once you enter the gates - you're "home". Wonderful place, staff,location, food and drink. Views are stunning. We stayed in little discussed -Two Birds. Not a ton of room as some of the other cottages, but rustic and simple and a small air conditioner that saved us on some days. Out door shower was great, location was close to road,... More

We just returned from having celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at the Caves, and in looking at the weather this week, I'm so glad we beat Hurricane Noel there! After reading all the previous reviews, we knew that we would feel well cared for, be well fed, and enjoy beautiful rooms with amazing views. Our only concern before going was... More

We decided to celebrate our 10th Anniversary with a 5 night stay at The Caves. The only disappoint was that we did not book a longer stay. The staff is amazing. The food is delicious. The accommodations are divine. We had an incredible experience with good people (staff & guests) at a world class beautiful location. We will be back…so... More

Just returned from 4 nights...all the good reviews are correct! The staff, food, spa, and cottages are all perfect. We are experienced travelers, and have stayed at 5 star resorts accross the world...while the experience is unique, we loved everything the Caves had to offer!

Another Trip, Another Review. Think again. Let me preface this by saying that if you read this and then even CONSIDER another resort, go BOOK the someplace else and leave the handful of rooms at THE CAVES to those of us who NEED them! That said, Those in The Know say that ALL of the Island Outpost properties are to... More

My new bride, Bonnie, and I just got back from a week at The Caves. I can't tell you how many times I was asked "How is everything?" while I was there. There was only one word I could answer with - "Perfect!". The setting is beautiful. The food is awesome. But what I think really makes this place heaven... More
