This was my 5th visit and we agreed the best yet. I have been with both family and mums and daughters trips and this hotel has been fantastic for both.
- The beach/sunset deck/pool area is absolutely idyllic. Great that you can sit on the deck or the pool and actually be by the sea. (Note most or all of the other comparable hotels have the pools at the back often all in shade)
- The beach is big, lots of space to sit and beach ambassadors who bring canapes, fruit and ice cream as well as come round for drinks orders
- Food is delicious (breakfast, dinner and deck all day menu all great)
- Happy hour cocktails
- Water sports boys (Jason, Roy and Keon) are all excellent, really helpful and very friendly.
- Good proximity to Holetown, approx a 10/15 min walk or a 5 min bus ride, we were a group of girls and felt very safe and the locals were so helpful.
- Sun loungers are very comfortable
Cons (or maybe points to note rather than cons):
- The wifi is good in the rooms but round the pool and beach is very difficult to connect. However I would point out you are on a holiday and if your wifi need is that desperate there is a beautifully air-conditioned computer room or you get better wifi on the chairs in the pool 'island'.
- Depending on who serves you some cocktails do seem to contain slightly less alcohol at happy hour
