It’s very difficult to find a fault! We stayed here for three nights in March, just before the virus crisis caused travel restrictions. My husband had booked the trip as a surprise and well in advance of our arrival, the staff had been very helpful in setting things up. While we were there, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful almost without exception. Our Ocean View Suite was huge, clean and comfortable. The ocean view itself is through foliage, but it’s a very short walk to the ocean. All the food was excellent. We ate in the Tamarind and stayed for hours after the meal, drinking our wine sat in the sag bags in the sand. We ate at the buffet one evening and also did the beachside private dining, surrounded by a heart-shaped lighting ring. Every meal was great. We were lucky enough to get seats on the outside decking of the main restaurant/bar area on six out of our seven attempts (the buffet, three drinks and two breakfasts). Try for this if you can - the view over the beach is perfect. Great cocktail menu and plenty of wine choices. Not a huge beer choice, but cold lager was fine in the 30 degree plus heat. We loved Barbarons beach and walked it end to end every day. It’s not a beach for swimming (at least not when you swim like us!), but really interesting, with lots of coral and shells washed up and a backdrop of varying greenery. There is a small area roped of for swimming at the rocky end of the beach - look out for the rope swing! We were surprised how quiet the beach was. We both felt that the location was a little bit of paradise and were sorry to leave. We hired a car to get around, which was well worth it. While the island is small, the roads mean that it takes longer than you expect to get from a to b. We drove around most of the island. For us aside from Barbarons our favourite beaches were Cap Ternay, Intendance Bay, Carana, Port Laney and especially Police Bay. Highly recommend this place to stay.

We had a two nights stay. It was a nice stay and wonderful experience but on our first day we noticed the hotel manager being very rude towards a client and the next day it was towards a young foreign staff in an open area. Spoiled our mood a bit.

We had a one night stay in a beach room. It was a lovely resort, very beautiful. The staff was extremely helpful and we had lovely drinks on the beach the evening. The rooms are spacious, however the bathroom was a bit odd. Breakfast was lovely and we cannot fault them on service. The swimming beach is very small however and I think it is worth a mention.

We spent 11 nights recently at the Avani and had a wonderful time. We had an ocean view room which was very comfortable and the best bed I've slept in for a long time. The staff was so helpful and personable, always doing their best, nothing was too much trouble. We are missing Joanne's wonderful eggs in the morning- she always remembered who had ordered what, and always with a smile. The bar service was great with Thushan inventing different cocktails for me! We would happily return, a very relaxing stay.

Room Tip: I was very happy with our ocean view room, definitely prefer over the garden view room.
