We have just returned from ten days here and cannot compliment the hotel enough. It is our first trip to Barbados and we had such a good time we are already looking at booking next year. We booked a signature “Oceanfront ‘ room so had the luxury of being within feet of the sea and a Butler.
Beautiful location and excellent service throughout the hotel. A special mention to Shane who looked after us so well on the beach everyday.and Roger the driver. See you next years!

Best Vacation Ever!!!

I literally just got home from the airport and couldn’t wait to give this resort a positive review. If you considering staying here...don’t think, just do it. I planned a surprised trip for my wife as a honeymoon gift. I contacted the hotel directly and spoke to Tawanda Thompson (Guest service manager). She was an angel sent from above. We chatted on the phone, about how I wanted to make this trip as special as possible for my wife. I requested the beachfront suite which was... amazing!!!
I have to mention Charlene and Rosalene (not sure if I got the name right) but they too were super helpful. It was a team effort, and it all came out perfect. Tawanda, you created a plan and everyone pitched in to execute it without any issues.
From their fast track pick up at the airport to the luxury car waiting as you exit the airport. To the warm and abundant smiles waiting to greet you as soon as you enter the resort. I am lost for words. But I can say this is my go to resort whenever I am on the island.

Fantastic Hotel

Stayed at this fantastic hotel in September
It was our second visit in 10 years and we wondered why we had left it so long!
The staff are absolutely fantastic and the service and food outstanding!
The general manager JC was friendly and amenable to all guests
It was truly a great place to stay
We were sad to leave but will definitely be back!????
