Like most I read but don't review. Having read some of the negative reviews I felt I had to put fingers to keys.
We had a deluxe courtyard view room, these are nearest to Rachel's restaurant but aren't noisy. As an upper room they get either morning or afternoon sun on the balcony, something you don't really get with the poolside rooms.
We found the staff at the hotel brilliant, speaking to people that had been before, over the last year or so since Virgin took them on they've come on leaps and bounds. They were all well informed, friendly and reasonably efficient.
The food - breakfasts, a good mix of traditional english cooked, cold meats, and the star being the 'eggs to order' bar where great omlettes were made.
Drifters - For lunch there was plenty of choice and variety each day, if you stay more than a week you'll get repetition but always 3 or 4 good dishes to choose from which incorporate Bajan as well as world favourites like Lasagne.
Rachels - we ate from both the a la carte and set menus and thought the dishes were great, perhaps a better rotation of dessert would be my only criticism. Less Coldplay though please!
The entertainment in Drifterswas better than the dodgy club singers you usually encounter too. If you want a lazy beach holiday with really needing to leave the hotel you'll be well set. If you want boring corporate, stay at the big name hotel down the road, if you want a little quirkly but clean stay here. We will definitely be back.
Criticisms - The pool could be open a little more than it was. Drifters at night was occasionally not as well staffed as it could be leading to a bit of a wait for a drink (this was the exception though). Also, towels especially face cloths in the room was a bit hit and miss.
