“2 week stay”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Booked with aircanada vacations. Was picked up at airport. Friendly receptionist. Bags carried to room #79. Room basic and comfortable. Water drought on and had 3 occasions of no water til morning. Location peaceful. Beach ideal. Food plentiful and satisfactory. Drinks endless. Servers all friendly. Plenty of insect choruses at night. Had a good time. Another trip would go for non all inclusive in order to enjoy more of the islands eateries and pubs, of which there are lots. Rented a car at $50/day. Taxis are expensive. Lots of great beaches around the island. Got to visit the galley bay resort next door. Had to pay $122 for an afternoon that included drinks and food! Way too pricey. Nice spot but prefer the hawksbill

“Our 1rst time nude at a beach”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We were a little nervous about being nude on a beach, but after only a few mintues we were both comfortable, and my wife even lost her bottoms (which she said she wold never do). We got there in the morning and were the 5th and 6th people there. We walked to the end of the beach and found a nice private spot. the beach was fantastic and the water was nice. there were a few catamarans that came passing by close to shore (probably wanting to give the tourists a taste of nude beach) but if you stayed on your beach chair (which I did not) they wouldn't be able to see too much.

Our taxi driver told the lady at the hawksbill security gate we were just there to use the beach and no problem. we walked through the resort and it was almost empty. a short walk from security to the nude beach. It was great we would go back anytime and now we are looking for our next au natural beach on our next holiday.

Go, you will enjoy, there wasn't anybody there to just gawk, everyone was nude it felt totally safe and everyone respected each other.

“Beautiful peaceful setting”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is like stepping back in time to a stunning spot in the Carribean without any of the modern trappings - no TV, no newspapers - just peace and tranquility. Tough days relaxing on a perfect beach, should I have a swim in the clear waters of the Carribean before lunch or maybe wander through the beautiful grounds admiring the stunning views?

“Great Beaches - Awesome Privacy”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed on this resort so it was much easier to enjoy them!

The nudist beach is by far my favourite (sigh, for several reasons...)

I'll add a few pictures. I enjoyed them mostly because they were almost deserted.
