The junior suites were fabulous - our preference is the upper floor because of the vaulted ceilings. The food and service was tremendous and the hospitality of the staff was exceptional!
This was a getaway with my wife for our 25th, and the hotel is pretty much dominated with couples getting away from it all.
Shirley Heights best view of the Harbours - English and Falmouth is spectacular and Sunday Nights live entertainment should not be missed. It is a short 5 minute taxi ride. We danced the night away to a great band - eat early at the hotel and head up as it ends around 11PM.
Christina arranged for us to participate in the Extreme circumnavigation of the island on a powerboat with a stopover at Stingray City - great day. Lunch on Green Island and the stopover at Runaway Bay were the true highlights. Seeing the Island from the water really shows its beauty.
On Friday night, we decided to forget dinner at the Inn and go and party with the locals and tourists at "Seafood Fridays" at Nelsons Dockyard. The food and music were great and then ourselves and another couple headed off to Abracadabra and danced until 2 AM - as they played all the hits from today and the past. Really enjoyed ourselves.
The Inn entertained the Prince and Princess of Monaco for 11 days at the New Year and they coined a drink after there stay - and thoroughly enjoyed "The Prince".
Great sheltered Harbour for swimming, walking the beautiful beach and tranquil to catch up on a good Read. The library has ample books to choose and we left a few for you on your future visit.
Well lite tennis courts, although I must say never got around to it.
The desserts look awesome, although not my fancy because "I am sweet enough". The wine list certainly was well represented and the starters and mains were very nicely prepared and presented - with most of the vegetables locally grown.
My passion is snorkeling and the Harbour is home to a massive sea turtle with many catching a view of him. I saw his head and top of his shell as he came up for breath, although never got a chance to see him underwater.
The Pillars of Hercules (see pictures) right at the entrance of the Harbour has some of the best snorkeling around and it is worth the walk, swim or paddle over. If walking make sure you have at least flip-flops with you.
Highly recommend this for couples, looking to celebrate and re-connect after all our busy lives.
We have spent a lot of time in the Caribbean and this Island with the English influence and the tremendous friendliness of the Antiguan people make a stay at "The Inn" as it known throughout the island a tremendous getaway.
I cannot speak enough about the staff!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set on a postcard-lovely bay on the island of Antigua, this split-level resort features a hilltop building overlooking English Harbour and the picturesque waters of the Caribbean Sea. The Hotel has its own white sandy beach, with a small but lovely private dock. Clear emerald blue waters are encompassed by the magnificently lush green landscape of the surrounding hills. This semi-enclosure induces a feeling of privacy and seclusion. ... more less
