Well what can I say other than my wife and I had the most incredible experience. We joined 8 friends on a trip to Desroche island for a week in Feb 2015. Looking at the website weeks before got our expectations going and being a film maker myself, I guessed the photo's were photoshopped with intense turquoise and rich blues... More

My wife and I were blessed to join up with friends at Desroches Island Resort earlier this month. We visited in 2014 and couldn't wait to return. The fishing and snorkeling was as good as before, if not better. The service was out of this world - from cleaners (who were always friendly, attentive and joyful) to management. The Chefs... More

A wonderful experience from start to finish. Our room was a standard Beach Suite although it was anything but standard. The room was beautifully furnished with a lovely garden right on the idyllic beach and kept spotlessly clean and serviced by a really nice team. Jonathan, the relatively new chef, produced some amazing dishes. Great fresh produce with exceptional tastes... More

We had the most incredible time on Desroches. We stayed in one of the villas. Last time I visited the island was 6 years and WOW, what a huge improvement on absolutely every aspect of the experience (not that it was too shabby to begin with). Monika, our host from the hotel, was absolutely wonderful. We were definitely not the... More

You could have scaped me of the ceiling with excitment prior to arriving, having heard so much about this beautifull secluded island, and it was stunning. The staff were super. Ina in the resteraunt was the best, Roque came a close second. Randy, in the bar, made the best Pina Coladas i've ever had..Pat another close second. Couldn't fault the... More

Just a beautiful, secluded island with an incredible array of activities, great food, and attentive service. The 4 bedroom villas are incredibly well done with the perfect layout. The staff was amazing - favorites include Monika (for her incredible patience and procuring our precious avocados), Deepak (for his all-star enthusiasm and dance moves on New Years Eve), and George The...

This really is a little piece of heaven on earth. The scenery and beaches are simply stunning and so unspoiled and take your breath away. The staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. We had two weeks in paradise in October 2014 when we got married which was every we had dreamed of for our special day and... More

This hotel is for the very rich. In my opinion is it overpriced in the extreme. The food is very good but unless in an all inclusive package - exorbitant! Drinks are also exorbitantly expensive. The setting of the hotel on the Island is perfect and magnificent for honeymooners or those wanting a quiet relaxing holiday.. There not much to... More
