The staff really make this place. There's an easy charm to Cecil, Kemlin and Paul (the owner), it's not too intrusive but rather engaging. Yes the restaurant is perhaps over priced and a bit of a work in progress but it will get there. The setting is relaxing and encourages you to switch off. It's clear Paul is slowly putting his stamp on the place but I hope it maintains it's intimacy as he does so. The all inclusive resorts are comparable to large Cruise Ships but the Admirals Inn is more of a cool sailing boat that allows you to have some input as to what course you take in Antigua.
