20 of us, including 9 kids, went to Golden Clouds for a family reunion/vacation. (The kids ranged in age from 3 to 19.) We all had an excellent time. The staff was friendly and helpful, and Miss Blossom's food was really good. We especially loved the Christmas dinner she cooked, with turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, etc. And she makes great cakes. We loved snorkeling through the reef right off the beach and we saw squid, puffer fish, eels, rays, etc. We left the villa a few times - to go Dunne's Falls and to Reggae Beach - but we mostly stayed on the property because there was plenty to do and it was so peaceful and relaxing. The rooms, especially the upstairs suites, were lovely and have balconies overlooking the ocean (and good air-conditioning and new bathrooms). We played a lot of basketball, tennis and shuffleboard. Our only complaint was that the tennis court isn't in great shape. But we really highly recommend Golden Clouds.
