This hotel has had some good reports and I now know why. Definitely worth the long drive to the bay from the airport, which is kept as private as possible with a manned gate at the top of the hill. If you want to stay on the resort to unwind and relax it is definitely worth upgrading to half board as there are not many places close to eat. Lunch menu has plenty to choose from, and the portions are massive and well cooked and presented. The evening meal is cooked to order and is simply lovely food, the steaks are lovely and tasty and tender and the fish was also beautifully prepared. If you want to get around a bit there are excursions which the receptionists were able to book for you or hire a taxi, but we opted for a car to do our own thing, and again this was arranged by the very helpful receptionist. (couldn't believe petrol was only 30p a litre!)
Very pretty island, but it does take longer than you would imagine to get to your destinations, not due to heavy traffic, but the terrain, but well worth the journey. As reviewers have mentioned before, the Argyle waterfall is very pretty and so too are a lot of the bays dotted around. We did arrange to be picked up and taken to Newton George's garden (about 1-2 miles away) to see the humming birds. It was an amazing sight to see so many buzzing around feeding, and trying to take picture of them. We were a little surprised to be given a bill for 120 tt (£13+) for the experience bearing in mind fuel is so cheap, and close to the hotel.
thank you all at BWI for a lovely holiday, we were especially pleased we didn't get much rain, only one day, and the mossies were not too bad either if you put the old deet on!
