Just returned from a 2 week visit and will return. Concerned about the November weather but sun every day with whispy white clouds and temperatures mid eighties low nineties. All english speaking guests and staff made it easy to make friends .The hotel is on an incline so you enter on the 5th floor which is where Rachels the breakfast and main dining area is as well. We had a pool access room on the first (ground) floor which in reality is access the 3ft 6in deep river which goes in a complete loop. The main pool is small and again 3ft 6 so no good if your into diving etc. You can leave the room via the pool access door but must remember to lock it via the inner handle first.You are not given a key to enter via this door so have to go around to the front door to enter with the card key providing that is you have'nt forgot and left it in the room!
Food was acceptable both in Rachels and Drifters with a variety each day. Location of the hotel was ideal with Bridgetown and more local shops and restaurants (if you fancy a change) all close by. Buses are plentiful for travelling anywhere with bus stops close by. Surprisingly the only fast food chain that has made it on to the island is KFC although they have a McBurger equivalent called Cheffete if your into that.
Took previous reviewers advice and took our beach shoes which are needed even for light paddling on the hotels pebbly beach. Better sandy beaches for swimming close by though. You must take the free shuttle which goes 4 times a week to close by Carlisle bay. It really is beautiful plus you get free sun beds and drinks. We travelled all around the islands beaches including Crane which is rated top 10 worlds best but thought Carlisle better,
Early sleepers so did not see much of the entertainment at Drifters but we could here it finish at around 11 each night.
Must mention the frogs which although the size of a postage stamp can make an incredibly loud whistle throughout the night. So if your a light sleeper then take earplugs.
Check out my pictures. I've tried to include some a bit different from already posted.
