I have nothing to complain about. The resort is absolutely beautiful. The accommodations are beyond expectations. We stayed in a lagoon villa. You can literally step off your porch into the water. If you are looking for privacy and luxury, this is your place.

Bit of a trek to get too but what a great place. I was fortunate to stay in the Fleming Villa with friends and had it exclusively. The service is excellent and the resort very exclusive. Add in a bit of James Bond mystique and you have a special holiday destination. One for every bucket list.

We stayed in a two-bedroom beach villa for two weeks and want to immediately return! We loved everything about this resort from the gorgeous villa to the lagoon where we swam, paddleboarded and kayaked and the restaurants where the food was delicious and the sea where snorkeling was such fun. However the outstanding feature of Goldeneye is the people who... More

We rented a lagoon cottage for a couple days and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was clean and the lagoon off the back was really nice. The outside shower was a nice change from an inclosed one. The first time you see the property approaching the bridge it will bring a smile to your face! Let's change that... More

Tonight will be night 3 of 4 staying in a lagoon room. The rooms are great and having our own kayak right off our own little dock is pretty sweet and unique! My favorite part of the room is the (screened) open air shutters, looking out from the bed onto our deck over the lagoon and the outdoor shower. The... More
