we have just returned from 2 weeks at this hotel it was our honeymoon -on our 2nd day we returned to find a bottly of bubbly in an ice bucket with 2 glasses waiting for us. The staff were very friendly (except for Andreus behind the bar who really ought to consider finding another job as he seems to hate working there- judging by the puffing and blowing and inability to crack a smile).
We thought the food was just lovely I would recommend you try one of the omelettes from Wayne in Rachels at breakfast and the girls working in Drifters were just lovely especially Keither, Amy, Jackie and Keisha.On my last day I was feeling a bit under the weather and nothing on the menu was appealling to me so Amy arrange for the chef to make something light for me. Unlike 'meme33' review our towels were changed almost daily, The rooms were clean and more than sufficient.
Drifters bar is on the beach and we too had the privelage of seeing the baby turtles hatch. The entertainment was pretty normal for hotels.
The races were on when we were there and the racecourse is across the road - it was a definite must.... they call it Bajan time ie everything is laid back and happens when it happens and this also applied to the races which ended up with each race being 20 mins later than it should be - but this was quite funny as the whole race meeting was extended by about 1.5 hrs !
I would recommend you avoid the tour operators tour of the island and go to the hotel just a few hundred yards away called Coconut Court and go book Teds tours - hes just sooo entertaining and its definitely worth the money - also his friend has a catamaran, its cheaper than Virgin trip and he will only allow 14 people so it was roomy very enjoyable and again worth booking. You really should go to Big Hals carpark Tues or Wed in St Lawrence Gap - for the most entertaining night of karaoke with some amazing local talent.
Avoid the government buses unless you want to stand for your journey and just go on the reggae buses - white privately owned minibuses - certainly an experience.
All in all we really enjoyed the holiday and this hotel - however I really do have a fear of birds and felt like i was in a Hitchcock movie at breakfast time - blackbirds all over the tables - you could not move away from the table - if you needed to return to the buffet room as the birds would be there in a heartbeat taking your food and drinking the milk (after they removed the clingfilm from the jugs) and at lunchtime they would be over by the food containers - if flapping and squawking birds dont bother you then you will enjoy this hotel and holiday.
