Overview

Classic Caribbean all-inclusive on Antigua’s southern tip, with two private beaches, a championship tennis center and a pair of top-notch restaurants

The Look

Flanked by water, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky bluff jutting over the sea. Everything from the ribbon sun loungers to the concertina blinds exudes a 1960s-style glamour, but easy-to-come-by hammocks, a splurge-worthy spa, beach bar and abundant rum drinks — for an all-inclusive price — make it easy to unwind here, too.

Bed & Bath

Updated annually, the 72 rooms and suites are decorated in an ocean-blue and sand palette that mirrors the colors of the beach. Deluxe Rooms are located right on Surf Beach while Bluff Rooms offer room to spread out at 851-square feet. Both include private terraces, as well as refrigerators, air conditioning and oversized soaking tubs.

Beyond

There are two private beaches, one for swimming and one for water sports, and there’s a freeform saltwater pool with chaise longues on which to unplug and unwind. For a similar degree of repose, the resort’s hilltop spa offers such sea-inspired treatments as its signature caviar and pearl facial, which is applied against an uninterrupted backdrop of Montserrat and the ocean. When the sun goes down, the resort comes to life. Guests don their finest loungewear and head for the Tamarind Tree restaurant for executive chef Christophe Blatz’s take on the classic chateaubriand with bearnaise sauce and a glass of Côtes du Rhone in the plantation-style dining room, which has whirring ceiling fans and a toe-tapping live band.

Tennis in luxury

The best all inclusive resort in the Caribbean. I have been there over 20 times for tennis week and the service and food and experience is wonderful. The staff is great and very friendly and helpful in every way

Luxury without the stuffiness

This was our 3rd visit to CB and we've already booked again for next year (and are talking about fitting in a few days in the spring). It's that special.

From Leon who is some kind of mind-reader (I swear he showed up at my beach chair the minute I started thinking I might need something from the bar) to everyone at Watersports who entertained my husband for the week (Thank you. Really.), to Michael who attended to us on the surf beach, to everyone at the front desk, as well as the ever-present Chelle and Wendy and Rob and Michael (the night manager)--CB is about the people who work to make every day special whether you've been to the resort multiple times or this is your first trip. I know I haven't mentioned everyone (the dining staff is so professional, and the chefs went out of their way to accommodate one of our group who has special dietary needs)--I'm afraid that list would never end.

...I just remembered how beautiful Ezra and crew keeps the grounds. The landscaping is stunning. I kept stopping to admire the flowers every time I went anywhere.

...Also, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the meals exceptional, and the activities are varied and plentiful. Thanks so much for providing us with such a great week as a family--those memories are priceless.

Not Top Class

1. Accommodation excellent (room 31) comfortable and clean.
2. Airport Meet and Greet very efficient; excellent
3. Reception and check out very efficient; excellent
4. Recreational facilities excellent apart from the so-called putting green which is in a poor condition.
5. Sea Grape Restaurant excellent. Very good food always as requested. Service excellent, fast and friendly. But why not open every evening ? It’s a shame to not use such a good facility.
6. Tamarind food and service very inconsistent ranging from good to indifferent to poor. Most meal orders went wrong ... items missing or not arrived. Service sometimes very good but mostly rather poor and seemingly not friendly, even somewhat rude. Some meals so poor not to be worth having ... example: lamb served thinly sliced small portions which were 50% plus fat not meat. Cooked breakfast usually arrived while only half way through previous course.
7. The House “champagne” (as described by CB staff) though good is not champagne, it’s Blanc de Blanc. This is misleading. The house wines in the inclusive package were rather indifferent at best and not of the quality expected in a hotel of CB’s standard.

Overall: good but could do very much better to live up to its self styled reputation as the best on the island; needs to improve the Tamarind food and service. Needs to upgrade the “house” wines.
