We stayed at Stonecliffe with our three children and give it mixed reviews. The property and the views are very nice. Our room was clean and the pool area was good for the kids. The downside is the food and the distance to the main part of the island.
The breakfast is similar to a buffet you would find at a 2 or 3 star hotel rather than what you would expect from a good bed and breakfast. The lunch, served poolside, is average quality and high price. Dinner is a set menu.
The property is about 2 miles from town and, unless you brought bikes or don't mind the walk, it is expensive to get back and forth with a family.
We'd only stay there again if we got a better price. It's expensive to get a family back and forth to the main part of town. Given the quality of the food you'll want to go elsewhere to eat, so count on trips to town.
