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

Were it not for the fact that this hotel is located on an absolutely amazing beach, I would never stay here. This is the typical property that has seen its better days and is now, well, old. The people working there do not want to be there, lobby and common areas are unkept, there is humidity in the rooms and... More

The quintessential romantic gateway. It's the perfect spot for romantic vacations, guys trips, events, and just for relaxing. The location is wonderful and the service is great as well. Everyone is so friendly and they love to have people over.

Disclaimer: It's difficult to be too negative about the Pink Sands because the general staff is so friendly (especially LaToya at the Blue Bar, and the hotel porters). That said, there are plenty of other issues, and reviews are supposed to be candid in order to be helpful to other travelers willing to spend so much to be there, so... More

Our three night stay at Pink Sands Resort was just perfect! The staff was friendly and attentive, the accommodations were clean and comfy, and the beach was beautiful. We spent our days with long walks on the 'pink' sand, relaxing in the sun, and enjoyed the dining and culture of Harbour Island in the evening. Breakfast each morning at the... More

We had the best romantic dinner during our stay. The entrees were superb and the wine selection was pretty good. The staff was so wonderful and experienced. I highly recommend this restaurant. It gets busy later in the evening- so maybe make reservations during the busy season.

My fiancé and I stayed here for a few nights to get away from the pressures of grad school. The staff is INCREDIBLE and are so kind. We stayed in an ocean view cabin and had our own beach access. It was stunning. The beach was never crowded and just pristine. The room we had was huge. The bed was... More

We have made Pink Sands our R&R spot for over 20 years. The staff is first rate, many have been around for years and they remember their guests. They are under new management but there has not been a let down in service. They are in the process of making some needed improvements on some of the bungalows but that... More
