This was our honeymoon and we absolutely loved this place. From the moment you set foot into this hotel, you are treated with respect, attention and a genuine warmth of affection. The staff were amazing, the food was truly worthy of michelin star rankings- the accommodation was fabulous- we had one of the panoramic villas (38) and it was heavenly. Turn down service each night with a special thought for the day, fully stocked mini- bar, very attention beachside drinks service as well as getting your lounger "just right" for you- we cannot fault this wonderful location at all. It is exactly what it says it is on the website- it is for couples that want to enjoy tranquility, fine food, great service and low key entertainment. We had a romantic dinner on the beach to celebrate our first wedding anniversary ( one week) and it was truly the most romantic setting ever.... now what to do for our two week anniversary back in the uk???. We cannot praise this venue highly enough- truly fabulous.

Room Tip: all are fabulous you cannot choose a bad room- but we loved ours, which was 38.

This was our second visit to this wonderful resort. The first impression was so amazing that we arranged to return the following year. Now we look forward to our next visit in 2014. Hands down, the service, staff, location,, facility, food, and overall excellence I would give this resort a 5+. They welcome you back with warm and heartfelt greetings. Beach accomodations are the best ever !

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms are for easy access to pool, restaurant, sand, ocean, dining areas and bar.

We loved the hermitage Bay. The staff had this wonderful ability of appearing with what you want without being intrusive. they really cared that everything was ok for you. We went the second day of the season so there were a few tiny glitches We had a beach cottage which was fabulous with and outdoor shower that was lovely. The air conditioning was noisy and next time for I hope we will go again I would choose not suite 16 as its by the hotel road which meant the one or two cars that passed by were heard. This is an all inclusive resort which I generally dont like but this was very good. Breakfast could be in your room or by the restaurant on the beach. Lunch by the pool or the restaurant whatever you wanted and the choice small but varied. The cocktails were amazing and the wines served good. This is a very picture perfect romantic place. lovely beach and inviting pool. we took a boat ride which was lovely. Highly recommended

Room Tip: both the beach cottages and hillside were very good. the latter having plunge pools. Avoid suite 16 and those beside the hotel road. the air conditioning was noisy

We have traveled extensively in the Carribbean and Hermitage Bay is one of our overall favorites based upon relaxation, landscape, view, beach, rooms, food, and staff. It is everythig pictured on its website and more. The views are stunning and the bungalows incredibly private, incredibly romantic! While the hotel does offer a few bungalows on the beach most are built up on the hillside affording gorgeous landscape and ocean views. All the hillside bungalows offer a good sized pluge pool and wrap- around porch with daybed. The bedroom is spacious, well appointed, and air conditioned. The bathroom is also spacious with modern sinks and fixtures with a free standing bathtub. Connecting to the bathroom, in a partially enclosed structure is the outdoor shower. It is fabulous showering while flowering vines dangle above you. The location is awesome if you are looking for privacy and relaxation. There are no other resorts visible as far as you can see. The beach is protected by hills so the Carribbean is calm. We explored 4 beaches by taking a 5 minute kayak ride from our beach then walking over some rocks to additional beaches. We felf as though we were the only inhabitats on Antigua.
We found the staff to be friendly, fun, and accoddomating. Ruth in dining, Jemal in guest services, Levique the bartender, and Anthony& Devon at he beach are just a few of the wonderful staff! The lobby is simple yet welcoming. Although there is only one restaurant and one bar, the food was outstanding with beautiful presentation and there was live entertainment nightly.
There is no night life to speak of here and its about a 40 minute drive to find it. If you are looking for clubs and partying this may not be the place for you.

Room Tip: As high up on the hill as possible for views and privacy. The bungalows on the beach would have a nice view but no private plunge pool and less privacy.

We visited Antigua in July for a most relaxed anniversary. The service was impeccable and the facility a true escape. Our plunge pool kept us cool yet comfy in the sun. Wonderful mountain views in one direction and a wide bay in 2 other directions. Large footed tub allowed long leisurely soaking seeing the same views. Screens kept bugs at bay (npi) as well as mosquito netting placed nightly over the bed.

Every morning a restock list for snacks and drinks was presented at breakfast. By the time we got back up the mountain on the golf cart the abode was reset. We kayaked, sailed a Hobie, went snorkeling, gathered shells, swam in the bay, and sight saw any time we wanted. We were left wanting nothing as every meal was exquisitely prepared to order. Each meal was shared with a few diners and topped off with sweet little birds snatching crumbs left behind.

Nights were quiet, slow and exactly right for us. Probably 75% of guests were honeymooners and no children. We made one trip into town planned for 2 hours but after 1 we found our shuttle and went back to heaven. We met one young couple heading to Sandals for a night of fast partying but no one else had any desire to leave.

The public roads are rugged getting there but the best advice is to use them twice. People are very service oriented. Ask for Levique at the bar. A wild and crazy guy!

Room Tip: Select an upper level with a pool. A walk down is not bad but a cart ride up is better.
