My husband and I love to travel and reviewed many many hotels before finally choosing East Winds for our honeymoon. We were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived the staff was so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable (we had an ocean view room with a beautiful view of the beach). The beach was never crowded...

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at East Winds this past March. It is by any normal assessment a beautiful property with very nice amenities, friendly staff and excellent food. First the good.

Hi World_citizen7 It sounds as though the experience at East Winds fell below your expectations and I am so sorry to hear that. At East Winds we have worked hard to create a private and fairly low key holiday, restful and tranquil. It's always a big disappointment for us when guests are not happy. We are closing the hotel in... More

This was our first trip to this hotel and I hope it will not be the last. As a family of four, we booked two deluxe garden suites. These rooms are semi detached so the hotel recommended two together for us which worked well. The rooms were clean and spacious and had a lovely outdoor covered patio area ( shared... More

East Winds could be an absolute gem of a hotel, but I'm afraid there are a number of areas that need addressing..

This was our sixth visit to East Winds and we were sorry (and slightly alarmed) to hear that shortly before our arrival, Jesse had moved on.

This small hotel with only 30 rooms that are effectively semi detached 'cottages' set in cultivated gardens, has some of the best food and drink we've ever experienced at an all inclusive resort.
