The hotel location was great and easy to get to. We had a great time but we faced a few small issues and some improvements could be made. We would have liked to see more locally sourced fruits as part of the breakfast plan. I found a cockroach once in our room but was cleaned the next day. We had... More

We came to Sugar Ridge with Secret Escapes. Sugar Ridge hotel has a nice quality feel about it. Most accommodation is in apartments that are arranged around a leafy hillside overlooking Jolly Bay and the harbour area. Our apartment (no.6) overlooked the “Sugar Club” and pool area but apartments numbered in the 30’s to 40’s I felt had some of... More

The staff at the Sugar Ridge are without doubt exceptional. From the welcome at Reception right through to the cleaning and gardening staff everyone was very helpful and freindly. We went off season so it was quiet but that made it better as I had the pool to myself most times. Rooms are very comfortable and very clean. All problems... More

We spent a wonderful 10 nights at this resort in September. The weather was good - very hot with occasional rain showers. Perfect time to visit as it is low season so not crowded. The staff were exceptional and nothing was too much to ask for. The complex is built on a hill so lots of steps and steep climbs... More

We have just returned from 11nights at sugar ridge. The setting is beautiful and the hillside location allows for great views. Not being on the beach is not a problem due to regular shuttles to all the local beaches. The rooms were nice- the plunge pool wasn't very clean so we didn't use it. There was also broken glass immediately... More

Have stayed at this hotel a couple of times on business. The staff at the Sugar ridge are always very friendly and extremely accommodating. We had an early morning departure and they provided us with fruits and pastries to go. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The infinity pool and restaurant on the top of the ridge provides... More

On arrival you are greeted with warm smiles and a rum cocktail and the classic cooling towel to wipe the sweat from the brow. Its about 45 minute from the airport.

The staff at Sugar Ridge is just delightful every one always greeted us with a smile and ensured we had a great time often sharing local tips for restaurants and things to do and see. It is not on the beach but the very friendly staff will take you to any beach in the local area free of charge.
