After our fourth visit to East Winds I now feel suitably qualified to offer my opinion on this piece of Caribbean paradise, although my 4 visits pale into insignificance from some members of the East Winds repeaters club, I was reliably informed that some people are approaching their 20th visit! For those of you who are statistically inclined, the current... More

We booked East Winds hoping for a restful and relaxing stay with a touch of luxury and good weather and we weren't disappointed. The cottages are beautifully appointed throughout the grounds and the only noise at night was the sound of tree frogs and other night time creatures. Whilst some people have reviewed the accommodation as "tired," we felt that... More

The East Winds Inn, what can I say about this place. It is an utterly gorgeous experience and special place to be. Although all inclusive hotels can be sometimes restricting due to eating in the same restaurant everyday, this place beat it. The food changed everyday from buffet to BBQ and all was enjoyed basically on the beach. The open... More

This was our third visit to East Winds and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and a true delight every night. We particularly enjoyed the piano entertainment.

This is without doubt the best place I have ever stayed. Judith and her team were discretely attentive to all our needs and made us feel like VIPs and old friends simultaneously. Great location, lovely rooms, great food and brilliant watersports. Everyone was brilliant but special thanks to Nico, Windel and Septima for being especially great. I hope to return... More

We love East Winds! We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks there; we have visited a few times before, but this visit surpassed our previous experiences – it is a very special place and offers a holiday quite different from the many other all-inclusive hotels on the island. To help other travellers, I thought some background information about... More

We stayed at Eastwinds in mid-July, a family of 4 with children aged 10 and 15. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eastwards. The staff, the food, the location (beach/grounds) and the friendly Caribbean atmosphere all combine to make this a truly relaxing experience. I'd recommend to anyone other than those with very young children, but is especially great... More

This was definitely a location for the middle-aged/older couple, but it doesn't mean it wasn't good fun. I went with my family for my mum's 60th birthday and me and my sister (both mid-20s) were by far the youngest there - but this didn't detract from the experience. The rooms and bathroom were beautiful, and we were given complimentary champagne... More
