Very nice hotel. Better Beach. Fantastic staff, we had a couple of maintenance issues but we're quickly resolved and management called us to apologize and send a nice amenity.hatd to mention staff by name as all from cleaning to management were very courteous at all times, gave you privacy when needed however managed to be there when we needed them. Love the colonial style of the resort.

Very nice resort, we stayed at 3 properties between islands and we would have been happy to stay longer here, the views from our villa were spectacular and walking on the beach was one of her favourite activities. This place is an Eden for people seeking relaxation. Highly recommended.

25th Wedding Anniversary
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. When you arrive at this hotel you will see it is different from others that you’ve ever stayed at having a colonial look and a smaller more personal feel to it.
We arrived just before room check in time and our room was just being finished so we didn’t have to wait long to be shown to our room.
Both our response upon arrival at our room was WOW! We were in room 508, Ocean View Villa and it was outstanding!
We had a jet pool jacuzzi which was unexpected, lovely undercover seated area, beautiful pool which was bigger than I expected as you could actually swim in it, loungers and a beautiful well equipped room. The view was breathtaking and you could even see sections of the beach. I think this room is the highest located position room and this meant it had this magnificent view.
This hotel is spread across a hillside which allows it to have all the private villas presumably all with good views if they are not on ground level. This means that the paths from your room are steep in areas. If you didn’t want to walk they had a buggy service where you called reception & they sent a buggy within minutes. You did need to hold on as you did feel like you’re at a steep angle in the buggy but the drivers were all very careful drivers so I felt totally safe in them.
We ate at the Tomakawk restaurant and Saffron twice each over our 4 night stay and the quality of the food was excellent. We were half board and I’m glad we were as the prices were very high.
Breakfast each morning was so good we spent almost 2 hours just taking our time trying several different courses, taking in the amazing view and I even had a champagne with my breakfast each morning. It wasn’t just sparkling wine either but proper champagne!
Most bits at breakfast were buffet style but you could order off a menu your eggs/omelette or a number of other selection of things.
If you wanted fruit you simply put what bits you wanted on a plate and then then it was all prepared for you! The doughnut’s were the best I’ve ever eaten!
The staff at this hotel were exemplary. They all really care about you and go out of their way to make your stay special.
Considering we only stayed 4 nights, the staff made us feel so welcome we felt we’d known them longer.
We attended the managers cocktail evening on the Wednesday night and this was a lovely way to get to speak to management and see other guests.
We were checking out on the following day and had been told due to a large party arriving we had to check out by 12 noon but the manager sorted this so we could check out by 3 pm. This meant we felt like we almost had a full day to enjoy before we had to leave so was greatly appreciated.
The beach was the best beach we’d seen. The sand felt like you were walking on flour. Although it wasn’t suitable for swimming, we didn’t mind this as it meant you had big amazing waves to watch and listen to.
The hotel isn’t suitable for children or anyone with mobility issues unless you’re maybe in a beachfront villa.
I visited the spa for a massage and this was excellent. Stunning views from the treatment room and a very good standard of treatment by Dewi.
The only thing letting this hotel down is the cost of drinks. We’d visited another hotel on the same island before arriving here & I’ve made the same comments on that review even though their drinks were cheaper than here! I accept that this is a high quality 5 star hotel and that costs will be higher, but feel the mark up is excessive.
We visited the Conservation centre where Nina went into great detail on all the work they do as well as seeing all the tortoise they have. I think this is important work that’s being done and hope the hotel keep working hard with them.
We’ve been to many good quality hotels around the world and always like to try somewhere new each time but this hotel is the first hotel I’ve truly wanted to revisit.
I would give this hotel 6 stars and am looking forward to when I can go back.
