Most of what has been said in the past reviews comes to fruition on arriving at the Inn. From the reception to the Garden ,then the servers and chefs are all very relaxed and laughing.It seems to be a happy ship led by a new Captain who appears to have the Inn at his heart but just wants to tweak...

We went back to East Winds for a third time in February and apart from a slight uncertainty at the beginning about what to expect with the new management we can honestly say that once again it proved to be the most beautiful and relaxing place we have ever been to.

From the moment we arrived we realised that this was a beautiful place. The staff, too numerous to mention, couldn't have been more attentive and caring. Our accommodation, a superior, was meticulously clean, the bathroom well supplied with soap, shampoo etc., the bed huge and comfortable and air conditioning that we could control. The food was excellent with a very... More

First time visitors, at the time of booking we were blissfully unaware of the management changes. All communication which we carried out directly with the reception staff was managed faultlessly. Aged in our late 50's we felt wonderfully YOUNG, being the young kids on the block for a change was fun, but don't come here at this time of year... More

We have just returned from a two-week stay at East Winds Inn (8-22nd February, 2015). From the moment we arrived, weary after a long flight, we were made to feel very welcome and part of a small friendly family unit.

This was our second trip to East Winds Inn after a fantastic holiday last year. We were surprised that the resort was under new management from the 6th January.
