Not so good lunch at the Beach Bar
Reviewed 2 days ago

We joined an old friend here for lunch and they had a buffet on which we didn’t fancy. The A-la-Carte menu didn’t have much to offer for us pescatarians so we ordered fish and chips! The mahi mahi arrived and looked like a couple of pieces of leather. We switched it up for fish off the grill in the buffet which was much better but they didn’t even garish our grilled fish and chips with a piece of salad or anything. The drinks were hotel expensive and the whole bill was astronomical for what we ate and drank. Then to add insult to injury after dropping $300 they wouldn’t let us use the beach chairs!! Not impressed.

A lovely week in Holetown

Wonderful hotel with lovely, attentive staff and a high quality of food. The location is first class and the beach is just sublime. Being close to Holetown there is a vast array of extremely good restaurants within a short walk or short taxi ride. I would recommend Lone Star, Nishi, Tides, The Cliff and Cin Cin By The Sea. All are just excellent, however make sure you book as they are very busy even on a Monday night !

We absolutely loved the hotel and it was made even more special because of the kind and caring staff who went over and above to make our stay so amazing!! Michael by the pool checked in with us each day and made us feel so welcome. We would love to visit again! Highly recommend!!
