Beautiful hotel in so many ways - really magic setting with tranquil gardens. Food was exceptional - from the breakfasts to wonderful local seafood at dinner. The staff we amazingly attentive and had the gift of being incredibly efficient yet still maintaining a relaxing Bajan atmosphere.

Very good 8.0
Disappointing experience....
Disappointing experience. The hotel looks like a dated English style country club - small and boutique yes, but the design is poor. Even though the hotel was not full, we got a room right at the rear of the hotel, which just happens to be near the main road. This meant we got little peace due to the road noise and services also located there. Not quite what we wanted from a Caribbean experience. Food orders at the beach bar took very long to organise, however the cocktails were amazing. Dinner was actually quite prompt and the food was great. The hotel is nothing special in terms of design. I’m sure there are better hotels on the island, especially for the rates they are asking.

Beautiful property and incredibly friendly staff. Our stay was just too short and I can see returning for a longer stay
Ted, us1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Th resort was absolutely wonderful - the food was outstanding and the staff was beyond nice and helpful! There are a few things for consideration - the hotel could do a better job giving information and options on activities to do - boat tours, snorkeling, hikes, spa treatments at the sister hotel etc. As someone who doesn't know what the island has to offer, you rely on the staff to help guide you. The other thing, which is sort of out of the hotel's control is the presence of children. Since the property is small and you will either lounge at the pool or beach, if they are in both places, it's hard to escape their noise etc.
