Thanks for your lovely review and time taken. My staff are deserving of so much praise. We certainly hope you do COME BACK to our lovely village and Sandals GH. The outdoor shower options are wonderful...but yes, winter showering outdoors could be more challenging! Wish we could have summer all year round! More
