Unbelievable, spectacular, once in a lifetime were a few of the words my wife and I used to describe our incredible experience. We tried to keep our expectations to a minimum, however, whatever those were Desroches completely exceeded them! From the personal welcome on the runway, to the sad goodbyes of 'our' island, we were made to feel completely at... More

Desroches is a unique resort accommodating a small number of guests, cared for by a very friendly and professional staff. We loved the bike rides, visiting the tortoises, walks on the beautiful beaches, and the lovely beach suites. I fished for Bonefish and was rewarded with many on pristine flats.

I hope this review will help encourage others to come to this wonderful place for the right reasons and discourage those who really should have gone elsewhere and will not enjoy the isolation and wildness of the island and the dedicated care of the staff in the memorable way that we did. Desroches island has been the most superb destination... More

Lovely island, easy to move around on bikes to snorkelling beaches. They also provide kayaks. Beautiful sunsets right in front of our villa. Good food, nice pool but could do without the piped music during meals. Friendly staff. Awesome outdoor bathroom, with great lighting, felt like I was in James Bond movie.

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
