"Welcome to paradise" is the first phrase you hear as you arrive, and this place lives up to it! The turquoise water, the pink sand beach, the restaurant with open space facing the ocean, the food being the best on the island according to all surveys..intimate enough of a place to offer a serene/relaxing stress free experience. The staff.. Warm,... More

Lovely, stylish, first class hide away on Harbour Island!, Lush landscape, attentive and professional staff. Wonderful food on the patio overlooking the pink sand beach. Love, love the black bean hummus and fish tacos!! The General Manager Ramon went above and beyond when he arranged for lounge chairs and umbrellas set up on the beach for me and my friends... More

Dunmore Beach is a unique experience in this world of shiny, hard-edged, branded sameness that prevails in the hotel trade, as well as in every other facet of current commerce. It is small in capacity - 14 rooms; and it is simple in decor with a Continental seaside feel and a warm elegance that does not feel contrived. There is... More

We spent a week at The Dunmore in February of 2015. We enjoyed Harbour Island in general, and The Dunmore Club is a beautiful piece of real estate, well located on a spectacular beach. The rooms are above average--not great, but very acceptable. The problem with the Dunmore is the service. It started before we arrived. We called the concierge... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Dunmore, and it far exceeded all of our expectations. The oceanfront home that we rented was exquisite, and just steps away from the beautiful pink sand beaches. The house was the perfect combination of luxury and comfort, nestled in the charming and intimate setting of this beautiful resort. We stepped out of... More

It is unfortunate that this beautiful property is run so dreadfully. Two weeks prior to our long-standing reservations our party of 4 was told that the hotel was suddenly overbooked and we were asked to rent a cottage instead. The cottage was to be fully equipped and had a private pool. We agreed. When we arrived it looked beautiful and... More

This hotel is amazing! If you like a smaller hotel, like me, then I would say that this is the best hotel on the island by far. Everybody is so nice! Staff is great , everyone knows who you are, even if you don't know exactly who they are. The bartenders/baristas knew what we liked.I recommend mango daiquiris! The beach... More

Been coming to Briland for many years but never stayed at The Dunmore before. It is a first class operation. Room was super comfortable with well appointed large bathroom with all the trimmings. Staff were very friendly and professional. Restaurant is excellent, best on the Island. Everything very clean and well maintained.

Terrific in every way. My wife and I stayed at the Dunmore last week and we didn't want to leave when it was time to go home. The operation is a perfect blend of high quality service and welcoming hospitality, and the setting is also a perfect blend, of refinement and comfortable, romantic charm. You know you're in a high... More

We are leaving today from this lovely place. I say lovely because the hotel is beautifully located and furnished. That's the nice part. We paid 800 dollars per night, that's Because they apply a policy of 24% of extra gratuities (not including the regular 15% on food and beverages) on the price for the whole stay. That would be fine... More
