Although it's a long way from the airport (where I was working the next day) it's totally worth the drive. The staff are friendly on arrival and will take your luggage to the apartment, offer complimentary drinks, and are interesting to talk to. Obviously the apartments are hot and sweaty, the ceiling fan can't overcome the heat of the plantation.... More

Beautiful location for a wedding and the staff was excellent. The plantation was a different exotic experience for the island. The dinner choices were a bit limiting but the free breakfast was great. It felt like you were truly in paradise!

Amazing hotel with great, friendly staff, stunning location, great food and loads to do on the doorstep. Makes a great alternative to the generic chain hotels and beach properties. The chorus of birds and insects at night is stunning. Such a great week away from it all, we loved every minute.

This place has the friendliest people. The facilities are somewhat aged and lack air conditioning. We found that was not a problem at night with the cool breeze. You need to bring converters even though it is advertised as both European and American outlets. Actually the entire cottage is wired European and they provided a transformer plugged into one outlet... More

“Stayed at the Papaya cottage - what a climb! I was with my partner who was on crutches and it was exceedingly difficult. Not recommended for the non-physically fit! But the cottage was splendid and the resort is beautiful. Very warm and caring staff also.”

“Some rooms require a steep walk, I didn't mind that, but check for a cottage with less of a walk if that matters to you”

“The rooms are actually cottages. If you have trouble walking/climbing, you might stick to the cottages that are not in the hills.”

“If you struggle with stairs, ask for a ground-level room or at the very least a lower level (so you don't miss the view).”
