“Boutique Resort In Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I stayed at Keyonna in the superior beachfront cottage in November and cannot rate this resort high enough. The staff, especially Jardin, Norris and Marquita were excellent, helpful and very friendly. The resort itself is very relaxed, peaceful and romantic. The food was of a 5* quality and for me, always served just the right amount portion size so that you were able to enjoy a starter, main course and dessert.

The beach is stunning and rustic with views of Montserrat island and St Kitts. If you have the budget I can highly recommend upgrading to the superior beach front superior cottage as they are very spacious with your own private plunge pool, day bed and loungers with access straight onto the beach. They also feature a mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities with mosquito nets and mosquito coils when sitting outside in the evening. After a day out at the stingray excursion (great experience on which transfers can be arranged from resort) we came back to petals and flowers on the bed with towel swans.

The evenings were peaceful and you never have to fight or pre-book a table like the larger resorts. Some evenings at dinner they have local musicians playing and singing which never overpowers the conversation.

This isn't just a resort for couples I saw 1 or 2 solo travelers as well as a large group of adults.

The cocktails are amazing and were available all day from the bar. Afternoon tea is also provided if you are feeling peckish between lunch and dinner.

Keyonna is very much a unique resort on the island and prides itself on having no televisions in the bedrooms. This is a real 'get away from it all' resort and if you are not fussed about activities and plenty to keep you occupied then this is the resort for you. Read a book on the beach and play chequers with a cocktail on the verrandah in the midday sun.

Room Tip: Beach front superior room, especially nos 42,43.

We stayed at Keyonna Beach 3 weeks ago, to say it was great is an understatement. We had a superior beach front cottage with a plunge pool where you just stepped down onto the beach. Quiet & relaxed. Staff were very helpful, food was good. The Kuoni rep was first class. We enjoyed it so much that we have already booked to go back in April. If you want lots to do with night-life then it's not for you. if it's just a relaxing holiday, sun, sea and slumber then you could do no better.

Keyonna Beach's appeal is that it's so secluded and beautiful. The beach and resort are flanked by a peninsula and a large bend in the island that makes it very private from the rest of the Island of Antigua. The staff are super nice and the food is beyond amazing.

It has a maximum of about 20 couples so it never feels crowded. The choice of excursions are also very appealing to the adventurous types, or you can just hang out on the beaches all day long.

We will definitely be going back for our 5th wedding annivesary!

If you're looking for an intimate and personal resort off the beaten path - this is it! My husband and I honeymooned here for a week and Keyonna Beach was so much more than we were expecting. We didn't want a huge resort with lots of other people and the private outdoor showers sealed the deal for us.

The resort is located on the beach and our cottage had a romantic view of the sunset each night. The resort is somewhat rustic but heavenly. Our room was always clean and beautifully decorated with flowers from around the resort grounds. The electricity on the island is not reliable and the power went out for several hours each day. This wasn't a problem for us as we spent our time outside and the power was always restored in time for the air conditioning to cool our room for the night. You can also hear some road noise as the road is behind the resort but didn't take away from our vacation.

Breakfast and lunch are taken outside under beautifully shaded tables and dinner is served under a covered area (in case of rain!). Shirts and cover ups are required during meals but there is no dress code. Most couples dress up a bit for dinner but shorts and sundresses are acceptable. The food at Keyonna Beach is outstanding! I highly recommend the breakfast specials, the soups are delicious, and the dinners are incredible.

The staff is friendly and their service is exceptional. The staff makes you feel welcome and comfortable at all times. Francine, Shenneth, Victoria, and Javin are wonderful.

Although the resort does not offer amenities (snorkeling, diving, etc) there are some services that will pick you up by boat from the resort. We had planned to go on excursions but were so happy we didn't leave the resort all week.

Highly, highly recommended!

The approx. 1/2 mile long beach was beautiful, and facing west provided great sunsets. Inga and Francine were great help the first day when our bags did not make it out of Miami. Inga swung into action getting us the appropriate toiletries and necessary clothing for 24 hrs w/o luggage. Francine provided the warmth of the place and we felt right at home. Shenneth, Vicky, Jevin, Dwayna (sorry for any spelling errors) were just great-we asked what the best local fish was (red snapper) and we got it the next night. Meals were served overlooking the beach with nice ocean breezes. Food was fresh and very tasty, but the wine selection was weak, advertizing Maipe from Argentina we got Sutter Home from the US-not.!The rooms were very nice, but the shower pressure in #34 was a dribble most of the time (outdoors was nice but...). Overall the people make this place and we will be back (and hopefuuly the showers and toilets will be better)

Great for couples, location is great just in front of the sea, very few rooms, small but comfortable. Service is by far the best of this hotel, everyone is extremely friendly working on making your stay as great as possible (and they accomplished the mission!). Food is great and tasty, beach is extremely nice and quiet. It is a must go for couples looking for a relaxed, nice vacation.

When my wife and I began planning our vacation, we both wanted to pick a spot that was private and more personal. We were not looking for a large "cookie cutter" style resort. We came across Keyonna Beach, and it seemed like a perfect fit. Upon arrival, the staff greeted us and made us feel right at home. The location combined with the boutique feel of the hotel was just what we were looking for. At one point during our stay, we were one of three couples at the hotel. Our room boasted amazing views of the ocean, which was a stones throw from our patio. The staff really defines Keyonna Beach! Their friendly nature and dedication to make our stay enjoyable shined every day. The food was AMAZING!! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner was always fresh and something we definitely looked forward to. Our trip was originally planned for 10 days, but our stay was extended because of cancelled flights due to a hurricane back in the States. Andrew and his wonderful staff made sure we were housed and taken care for during the additional 3 days. They even checked in with us after we returned home, to make sure everything was okay. This place will not dissapoint. We highly recommend Keyonna Beach and plan on returning very soon.
