This was our first trip to the Caribbean - and I think we've been spoilt! The location is, quite simply, stunning. The view from the Terrace Restaurant is great, but perhaps even better is that from the Beach Bar - where breakfast is served every day.
The grounds are immaculate - even though we were there during a drought and the lawns were very dry and bleached - and the Garden Tour is definitely worth joining.
Our room was spacious, clean, and plenty of nice touches. Mosquito nets and machines most effective - we didn't have any problems at all.
The shuttle service between the main area of rooms and the restaurant is very useful, and the water taxi service round to Nelsons Dockyard is excellent. That's certainly a trip worth making.
Sadly, we found the food in the Terrace Restaurant didn't quite match the description of "international fine dining" but we understand that owners/managers are well aware of this and changes are to be made. However, having said that, the staff were excellent, and we felt that the food in the Beach Bar was more appealing.
Overall, though, an excellent week which left us wanting to come back here. As the sign in the Beach Bar says - Just another day in paradise.
