On paper Desroches has everything going for it, beautiful beaches, tropical paradise wonderful rooms and accomodation but.... The public areas are a little uninspiring, not bad just zero wow factor and a bit souless, te public areas getting a little tired and the restuarant is fair rather than excellent and the meals offer little choice, altough the asian buffet was...

Amazing service across all aspects of the resort. At the restaurant, bar, spa, diving - all perfect. The initial welcome was particularly special setting the tone. Luxury Beach Villa was above expectations and perfectly kept. Lunch and dinner always different and enough options to satisfy. Fine dining service, freshness, originality and plating. Not really enough included wine options though, or... More

We have just had a lovely week at Desroches and firstly I shall do the positives from our experience. The island is beautiful, the beaches at the beginning of our week were stunning, the staff helpful and friendly, the beach villas are very comfortable and the food again at the beginning of the week was better than towards the end...

Good morning, Thank you for your extensive review of your recent holiday to Desroches Island! We are sorry to hear that the flies were a nuisance on your trip.

My young sons & I had a wonderful week on this remote, conservation driven island. We spent our time snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, swimming, exploring the island on our bicycles and eating delicious food. Highlights were seeing turtles laying eggs on the beach, swimming with dolphins, turtles, rays etc. Fantastic, friendly service. The children went to kids club a few times... More

We stayed here in Nov 2013...a great resort, very good food, wonderfully peaceful and very comfortable rooms. Diving was excellent and general service was to a very high standard (except the bar staff who were too laid back...we had to go to them to get a drink not the other way around). Only things I'd caution are the beaches which,... More

Dear Jonathan, Thank you for taking the time to review your trip in November 2013! Whilst we are aware of the presence of flies within a certain period of the year, it is of course a delicate topic as we strive towards keeping the island in its natural state as much as possible and improving our role as conservation advocates....

We stayed in a Luxury Villa facing the ocean on our honeymoon. Desroches was unlike any hotel stay we’ve ever had. It’s a self-contained resort in in the middle of nowhere. On one end of the island, neatly separated from the rest of the island by an airstrip, is the hotel property– the main dining area, pool, hotel offices, tennis... More

An amazing trip - which can be as adventurous or relaxing as you want to make it. We were so spoilt by staff - who made every effort to look after our every need.
