Positive Reviews

Paradise Found

This sumptuous setting provides guests with the exclusive hideaway they are hoping for. Nestled in lush green gardens, the resort boasts two private coves with water sports equipment, swings and loungers. Guests love chilling in the garden-side bars and dining al fresco on elegant outdoor terraces.

Ocho Rio Nights

Highlights for guests include romantic, candle-lit beach dinners and unforgettable poolside chocolate parties. Reviewers rave about the 1920's décor and the atmospheric jazz performances at speakeasy bar, The Rabbit hole, which hosts a popular karaoke on weekends.

Subsea Splendour

The clear, blue waters of the Caribbean are a draw for reviewers who come to earn certification in scuba diving or improve their qualifications. The diving is delivered by competent and well-organised staff. Spotting glorious, multi-coloured sea life while snorkelling delights numerous guests.

Negative Reviews

Vanishing Smiles

Although this five-star resort's staff still receive many positive reviews, some returning guests feel that the team aren't as friendly as they once were. A few travellers have mentioned that recently the staff banter can seem forced, with employees reluctant to converse and a little curt at times.

Lazy Lounge

Most reviewers don't mind the slowed-down island pace at this exotic resort, but a few travellers find staff a little laid-back for their liking. Some cocktail hunters have their dreams dashed by day-dreamy bar staff missing-in-action at opening times. Other guests encounter a piano bar without a pianist.

Murky Waters

Reviewers noted the murky, algae-filled Carp pond as an example of some of the grounds and buildings needing a bit of love and care. Some guests who stayed in suites with private pool would have liked it cleaned more regularly to meet the impeccable standards maintained elsewhere.
