Pink Sands resort has clearly seen better days in the past and would need a thorough renovation to justify the horrendous prices it charges. Particularly we were negatively impressed by the common areas e.g. reception, lobby, pool and main restaurant. There we had dinner the first evening and we experienced a slow service and poor quality cuisine. There is another... More

Have you ever walked on a absolutely beautifully stunning beach where the sand massages your feet to the point of ultimate pleasure? Well, the pink sands of Harbour Island only start with that. It is the only island I know where every meal is a delicacy. I had boxfish(blowfish) stuffed with shredded and delightfully seasoned shark meat, unbelievably delicious coconut... More

Pink sand is an all time favorite for me, the beaches are soft and clean, barely a soul in the mornings. It feels as if you are transported to a time of simplicity and innocence. The locals are so proud of the island, sweet and wonderful. The island is safe, it's quiet so don't expect a party. You travel the... More

My husband and I visited Pink Sands to celebrate our anniversary this past summer. The area is absolutely beautiful, the villa private and comfy, and the food tasted great! Our villa was a short path down to the beach, where we enjoyed being almost the only ones there. As well as enjoying the nice beach and warm, clear blue waters... More

This place is amazing! So private that we had the beach basically to ourselves. Ocean water was so clean & perfect temperature. Food was on the expensive side, but 1st rate in quality. Room was clean & nice. Recommend golf cart rental to explore town.

We stayed for a week in an oceanfront cottage and the view from our patio was stunning. It truly is the most gorgeous beach I have ever visited. We received great service from the staff as well, they were most helpful and kind. We really enjoyed dinner at the Blue Bar and found the food and wine to be wonderful,... More

We recently stayed at Pink Sands and were very surprised how dilapidated it all was despite having a stunning location. The afternoon we arrived we had an invitation to drinks at the Blue Bar at 6.00 but arrived to find it closed. The reception desk was left unmanned on several occasions at night, turn down service was sporadic, and laundry... More

The location is sensational, but at any price, the condition of our cabin and the superficial cleaning it received, apparently with a wet cloth, at a different time every day was completely unacceptable. Most of the furniture, fixtures and fittings are fit for recycling. The beautifully refurbished Dunmore Hotel, with it's delicious food, charming and competent staff is a three... More

We loved Harbour Island but found our incredibly expensive casita to be run down. The slip covers on the furniture were torn and the property in general was sub par. The Blue Bar on the beach was awful. We waited an hour for ceviche and it could take 30 Minutes to get a drink at the bar.

I have been to Harbour Island several times and stayed at a few different establishments, most recently the Pink Sands Resort. It has many pluses but several significant negatives. The location like the Dunmore, Coral Sands, and Runaway is beautiful - right on Pink Sands Beach but close to town. The staff if very pleasant and energetic. The lobby, tennis... More
