As independent travellers we have visited most regions in the world and rely on word of mouth from friends and Traveladvisor to book our first boutique hotel in the foreign country for a few days and to determine likely spots to travel to and for accomodation.
I received a phone call back immediately from Edgar the owner of Old Harbour upon my initial enquiry followed up with immediate email exchange to confirm our booking.That's service.
Edgar put us up in the Princess suite which was lovely.
Jude the travel co-ordinator organised onward accommodation for us and also a caring respectful and safe driver in Josie.
For our anniversay to our surprise the staff organised a beautiful sheaf of flowers in the morning and an anniversay cake with candle at our evening dinner on the lawn beside the pool.
The food was excellent with guests from other hotels vising the restaurant.
The staff were couteous and efficient and the hotel meticulously clean and serviced.
We commend it to all travellers
