This place is great....Just been for a week with my lady.
Simply stunning location, super friendly staff. If you want to be left alone for a quiet peacefull time. We may have been lucky as was not to busy. We had the pool to ourself for days. Rooms are great for the price. Cleaned daily. Jet powered air con. Fridge TV, mozzy net and quaint....I stayed in a cottage.with a stunning veiw..Breakfast is fresh and a good choice.
The pool is clean and great for a dip in this sun trap. And the 'trust' bar is well stocked...i even got the 'margerita's ' on!!
I have been all over the island, and would say english harbout is the place to be...especialy if you cant stand 'resorts'. Staying here your within walkng distance to all the resturants ...2 lovely marinas full off stunning views, history and culture. You can jump on a number 17 bus ...and your 30 mins over the island to St' Johns...Taxis are everywhere...
You can hire transport in the marina...we had a renagde jeep with some friends we met....and drove round the island ...Get yourselves to 'Half moon bay'....stunning...
Or nip to the nearby mountains....great bits of rainforest. Shirly heights is nice...great views.....but if you want quiet do not go on a Sunday evening....its like a cattle yard....with all the resorts bussing people in for the sunday BBQ....
there are some great walks with bits of ruins here and there from the old colonial days....all round english harbour..3 beaches...Pidgeon, Windward , and Galleon....all quite different and all worth a anfternoon..
But without a beautifull quiet base to work from like 'The Ocean Inn' you may find it different...but if i one day return to Antigua I know where i going and its here..
I even asked my lady to marry me here. It is for you ...if you are laid back ...want no hasle..do not want to be waited on hand and foot.
So would thank all involved at this establishment....and keep up the good work.
