We checked in on July 14th with our family. There were 10 of us including our 13 month old grand-daughter. Today, we checked out...none of us wanting to leave. The bungalows are gorgeous and feel like home. No wifi in the bungalows, but it is available in the main house which was just a short walk away. The absence of... More

Visited in 2014 and decided to return in 2015 for another relaxing vacation, this did not happen. Will not be returning to the island for anymore vacations. Restaurant they had there in 2014 was closed. Was not told this when we booked and we did not bring food with us. Totally not worth the price. There were several other mishaps... More

We just got back from our trip to Black's Island. It's a real unique place to visit. Very laid back and gorgeous. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The bungalows are beautiful and decorated really nicely. The beach is wonderful and the surrounding waters are filled with wildlife. We went paddle boarding, kayaking, used the small boat with electric... More

My husband and I stayed in August 2014. We enjoyed it very much. Our bungalow was very clean and we didn't have any maintenance issues. The staff was very friendly and helpful the few times we needed something. I think they pretty much live on the island and it seems like there isn't always someone actually working if you need...

My family and I have had the best time on Blacksisland. The pool was stunning, the cottages was perfect it had looked like no one had ever stayed in the cottage before. The staff there was just outstanding! We have stayed many places all over and Blacksisland is my families and I favorite place ever. My family always had something... More

Poorly executed concept and not worth the premium they charge! It felt like something belonging to a Jeff Foxworthy punch line relative to how things are managed there! Positives: nice cottages with great views, & decent pool. Negatives: zero food and beverage options (false advertising!), not well maintained, no wifi, poor tv options in cottages, no formal beach area, guests... More

I have stayed all over the world, and to say the staff here is the worst of them all, is an understatement. Once you are there, you are at their mercy. They are nowhere to be found, the restaurant is never open, and the facility is falling apart. Boards on the deck were literally giving way. Not to mention the... More

Just returned from our wedding on Blacks island. This place is incredible.What a bargain for a wedding, the catering was amazing and The hosts and staff were very friendly. If you are looking for the ultimate place for a beach wedding this is it.sunsets, friends,island time,and somehow there is still privacy.cant wait to return for our first anniversary. Russell

The island was beautiful and the bungalows are stunning. They offered an amazing view of the water and sunset. We had a great time scalloping and using the paddle boards. In the end we felt it was extremely overpriced and felt we would have had just as much fun had we gone with the cheaper option we were looking into... More
