This was our first family long haul holiday and we chose East Winds based not only on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews (which are not wrong) but for the opportunity to relax and spend time together in a peaceful location.
East Winds provided everything we wanted and more, the beach front location is amazing and the gardens, grounds and poolside are so well kept. The quality and choice of food/wines just could not be bettered, our young son tried and enjoyed so many new foods, but there was never a problem in making him a more simple meal from the menu choices. The hotel's best asset is their fantastic staff, from first greeting and throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble for anyone(even small problems with our room sorted efficiently) and always with a smile.
We would recommend East Winds to anyone looking for a beautiful setting, quality food and excellent service in a peaceful location and so look forward to being able to return.
As some reviewers comment whilst the transfer from the International Airport by car is very scenic due to the roads and terrain of the island can be a little to far after a 9ish hour flight from the UK. We would definately consider the helicopter transfer next time.
