We're oldies who've travelled the world, but this rates with the very very best relaxing breaks... EVER!
Buccaneer: So friendly, so helpful, so organised, so willing to make your stay a great one. Wonderful leafy surroundings. And inside it's like a condo with separate living room with kitchenette, balcony, bedroom (great bed, safe in cupboard), big bathroom, big walk-in shower, ceiling fans AND aircon. Rock steady wifi. Two multi-multi-channel flat screens, one with DVD player. Upstairs is perhaps a little more private. Great grounds, great pool, very quiet, serene..
And the sea is right there! Twenty steps away. So is a good restaurant (only slightly pricey) with great fish. Then busier beaches to your right and a deserted beach to your left. So blue. So green. So great. Wish I was there right now.
Get a pick up from airport with Barry Oliver (they'll fix it) stopping at supermarket for basics, one day have a trip round the island with Barry - who is a very warm and knowledgable guide (they'll fix it), another day hire a car (they'll fix it) from $50US a day plus $10 CDW plus once only driving permit $20. Side roads rubbish, mains ok, watch the wandering dogs. Join the throng for the steel band and barbecue on Shirley Heights as the sun sets over English and Falmouth Harbours with Montserrat on the horizon (sigh). Go to St John's look at the four (count 'em) giant cruise liners disgorging day-trippers. See the town. See the markets. But be glad you've got Buccaneer to go back to.
Before I went I didn't believe a place to get such reviews. Now I do. My only regret in writing this is that it makes it harder for us to get a room next time.
