We have just returned from a week at The Inn, over New Year and had a fantastic time staying in one of the four beach cabanas....and they really are right on the beach giving the holiday a special feel.
The rooms are very nice and comfortable with walk in shower - our shower overlooked the beach.
Air con a little noisy so we used the ceiling fan, but temperature was fine in evenings.
Christina, guest services manager was superb and very responsive to helping us, especially as my girlfriend is a veggie - she organised a fantastic NY eve menu with the chef for her for which we were grateful, as did Sheralyn who stands out as a waitress in the main restaurant for dinner - we enjoyed her company and excellent service. Staff in general are very good and the likes of Tussy and the girls in the reef restaurant are also very nice.
The shuttle boat to the English harbour is handy and Vere who operates it is a very laid back and pleasant chap. We felt that this location in its own little bay with privacy but so close to the English harbour made it the perfect address for us!
The beach scene is superb, loungers nicely spaced although we were sat right outside our cabana, which leans me towards recommending this form of accommodation for ease. Free water and fruit kebabs were a nice touch during the day too.
Couple of minor points, bit annoying that there is an ironing charge as the hotel doesn't provide an iron for you and we felt that there could have been a wider selection of veggie options for dinner, although lunch options are better for veggies.
The above would not and does not stop us from recommending the Inn as a superb choice, which is very personal and very relaxing as a resort which carried a very mixed age of clientele over the Xmas period.
The Inn seems to get booked up with lots of repeat business so act quickly if you want to find room at the Inn!
