We went in search of rest and calm after a tough year. We got exactly that, along with many delights we had not anticipated: the exquisite gardens with 100 named plant species; surprisingly good sailing; the hordes of tiny tropical birds clamouring for the daily teatime cake by the pool; just the right level of delightful company from fellow guests...

Very relaxed atmosphere and not a child in sight. On top of this, the food is outstanding and the nightly pre-dinner champagne a lovely addition

Arriving at East Winds the welcome is great. First impressions are of the wonderful gardens in which the 30 rooms are located. Then the peace of the place as you walk to your inividual cottage.Cottages are airy spacious and comfortable. At night the only noise is of crickets and tree frogs. The setting is on a smallish but adequate beach...

If there is one potential problem in forever returning to a favourite holiday destination - and this was our 15th visit (buy 15 get one free??) - it is the thought that maybe, just maybe, things won't be as brilliant as the last time. We know every inch of the East Winds complex, and since completing all the main tourist...

The food here is wonderful. The wine is even better - a choice of 5 good quality wines at each meal. The bed was very comfortable (the best I've slept in for a while), the room was spacious and the staff were exceptional. (And I promised to mention Leron for introducing us to some of the local rums, and Titus...

THANK YOU FOR THE GLOWING REVIEW We greatly appreciate your positive comments and remarks relating to your 11 day stay at East Winds Inn.

My wife and I recently returned home from an eight month trip around the world to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary.

Having stayed in some Caribbean resorts where the staff were very variable it was a joy to stay here where all the staff were wonderful - always happy and helpful.

We stayed here for 1 week as part of our honeymoon and it was amazing. First of all can I recommend the helicopter transfer from the main airport, it turns the prospect of a dreaded 1.5 hours coach ride into a 7 minute delight! It cost around £230 for 2 each way. The hotel is like a little bit of...
