“The Beach Experience everyone needs”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The Moorings is peaceful with no crowd. There is no such thing as fighting for optimal space on the beach, lounge chairs, hammocks, paddle boards, or kayaks. There is plenty to go around! Children are permitted to stay on the property so if you are looking for a completely child-free atmosphere, it's not guaranteed. During our stay it was extremely romantic, beautiful and the weather and calm waves couldn't be more perfect. Thank you Natasha and Moorings staff for a wonderful beach experience!

Room Tip: The Honeymoon cottage has a perfect layout and a wrap around porch to snooze on if you've had to...

Nothing but praises, the place is magic, the staff is incredible and you genuinely feel as if you are part of a wonderful family...

I wish there were more stars to give out.

The added room service with a astonishing delicious selection makes the Moorings go from best to "more best"

The Moorings was the perfect destination for a getaway. The setting was spectacular and very tranquil. The accommodation was very private and the resident cats made us feel welcome! The staff were lovely and helpful with reservations etc. We enjoyed biking to nearby local stores and exploring the area.

First off, the spa staff was extremely helpful with accomodating our group of 11 friends who wanted to get massages. They worked out shifts of two that worked with our very strict sun-bathing schedule.
After checking in at the spa, we were directed down towards the beach where a beautiful cabana awaited us. The massages were absolutely fantastic. The products smelled heavenly, the scenery was perfect, and they paid special attention to our specific needs. I have never felt so relaxed and spent an hour in a luxurious half-conscious state. Bliss.
After hour massage, we had the chance to enjoy the beach and the pool while our other friend received her treatment. The pool area is lovely and the beach is perfect. Plenty of lounge chairs and hammocks.
I wish I could have spent the night here. The staff was so friendly and the ambiance was perfect for a relaxing beach vacation. We saw a mix of families and couples. If you are looking for relaxing time in the sun, definitely look into The Moorings.

In our view, the true measure of success in a resort is its relentless pursuit of excellence. The resorts that stay on top never stop working to delight their guests. In this, our 4th stay in this island paradise, the Moorings continued to exceed all of our high expectations. First and foremost, the staff is always exceptional - blending the right amount of service with a sincere respect for guest privacy. This year, complimentary daily housekeeping was added by guest request. We choose not to partake, but it was a lovely offer. Second, the grounds remain a serene, quiet, elegant, nature preserve. We picked a ripe star fruit and orange from the spectacular fruit trees on the property and enjoyed them with our homemade cocktails. We watched Magnificent Frigate birds and ospreys soar right above our heads as we kayaked out from the Moorings private beach. The other guests we met also return year after year to experience the unique relaxation and peace this former coconut plantation provides. Wonderful for couples of all ages and those families who enjoy scenic tranquility and each other's company. A special tip: For a truly memorable day of fishing, go out with Captain Matt Pribyl for the best backcountry experience ever. The office can arrange it for you. This retreat is truly unique and it remains our favorite place for our annual winter sojourn. Thank you Kelly, Natasha and James - your hospitality always makes us feel completely at home! See you next year!

Room Tip: Try the North and South Lodges for exceptional value.

Let me just say there are no photos that can do this place justice. If you want quiet, peaceful relaxation, this is your place. Beach is incredible. Hammocks and chairs make it easy to relax. Heated salt water pool is outstanding. I honestly just don't have enough words to say how amazing this place is. Also, be sure you visit Amy and the girls at the spa. They are just so welcoming, and you will leave feeling so relaxed!!

We stayed at the North Cottage for a Sunday and Monday night in December. Everything about the check in process was really lovely and easy. I did very little research for the trip- but liked the very hands-off process of getting us into our cottage where we could set up and throw on bathing suits and check out the beach. Which was absolutely gorgeous! Plenty of kayaks, paddleboards and chairs that are just there for the taking ("Just grab one and put it back on the beach afterwards"). Really ideal peaceful setting, which is why there was a professional photo shoot there. According to the hotel literature this happens often- in order to keep costs for the cottages lower. There was a pretty decent sized professional children's wear shoot (equipment, people) happening but the people were very sweet & respectful and their equipment didn't ruin our time- it's a pretty decent sized private beach. We just sat pretty far from them when we were vegging out and were more than fine. Our cottage was very nice with a decent kitchen and living room and tiny bathroom- chill and clean lodging with a nice balcony. We also made it to the VERY quiet pool and tennis court which was in very nice shape (they gave us balls and racquets). Stay here. Wish we could have been there longer. Will definitely be back.

Tips: Housekeeping is not automatic- do request it each day as needed. Stock your fridge with lots of fruits and drinks. Go out on the dock to the hammock at night and sway under the stars.
