My husband and two young daughters recently stayed at the Oyster Box Hotel. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The level of professionalism of the staff, from the receptionist to the gentlemen who carried our luggage, the lady who turned down our suite, to the waiters in the restaurants, they all resonated the greatest level of service encountered. Our daughters loved the children's area, and I really appreciated the fact that we were requested whether or not they could allow them to have sugar whilst in their care. The restaurant staff were also extremely patient and accommodating when we fed our rather 'fussy eater' children early in the evening.
When it comes to the view, I believe it is one of the top locations in the world. I am not usually someone who can sit at the beach all day, but I found it very difficult to tear myself away from the pool area. Our daughters had the time of their life at the pool area and we could sit gazing at the beautiful ocean and Light House being able to relax and soak up the ambience.
Thank you Oyster Box for one of the best holidays of my life. I will see you again very soon.
