My husband and I stayed at this resort (2nd time) December 11 thru the 18th in room 215, oceanfront balcony. I just have to say that I just LOVE this place. My husband is not as enthusiastic only because there is no golf course. We have stayed at many fine resorts in the Caribbean, i.e, FS Nevis, Ritz in Grand Cayman, Raffles Resort in Canouan, the Grenadines (now called Careenage Bay Resort), the Jalousie in St. Lucia, LDB, Virgin Gorda. However, for me, it is all about the experience of feeling like you are visiting a "fantasy" island. Deadman's Beach is fantastic, soft sand, clear blue water, palm and grape trees which provide enough shade that an umbrella is not needed, and hammocks to laze away the afternoon in. And the most amazing thing, you feel like there are only a few other couples staying at the resort. Only at meal times do you have any idea that there are more than a handful of couples staying here. This was true in December, April (our 1st trip) and last March when we made a day trip here from STT.
We did not take the meal plan because we both only eat 2 large meals per day. That worked out well for us. I did have one spa session which was very relaxing. We had planned to go off island and rent a car on Tortola, but decided we didn't want to leave Peter Island. We had already been on day trips to Tortola and Jost Van Dyke, and had stayed on Virgin Gorda, so the interest was not there; instead we remained on our "fantasy island." We basically just walked the trails, enjoyed the beach, and read the books we had brought with us.
A lot of guests are repeat visitors. We met a young couple on their 3rd visit and a much older couple who said that it wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to Peter Island.
Yes, it was a pain to travel to get there- 3 flights w/an overnite in Miami, then the ferry trip to the island. On both ends we had 2 hour travel delays which makes the trip even more trying, but luckily, we did not miss any connections. Next time flying into STT instead of Beef Island might be a better option; it may be the only option with AA.
As I said, I just LOVE this place, and I just think TA's contributor, Needs to Relax212's title "Perfect for napping, ocean staring, relaxing, and reading" says it all. That's just what we did!
I would suggest the balcony rooms. Beachfront was really nice.
