Week AI in Feb
I chose this property due to it being adults only, all inclusive & in St James. It’s not a massive hotel which adds to its charm, all the staff are friendly professional & really makes an effort to help. Our cleaner offered to spray our room as unfortunately mosquitoes were out in force 🦟. I’d say more of an older clientele, I took my mum and for us it was fine. It’s a great base & you can walk into Holetown in 10 mins. Buses are bds 3.50 per person per ride whether 2 stops or into Bridgetown - the regular or reggae (usually yellow or white - more or an experience with music & a lot more busy) we also went to the cricket- bus to the bus terminal & 10 min walk. It’s only cheap to watch & really good fun even if your not an expert or massive fan. The hotel has 2 restaurants main restaurants plus beach bar. The Sunset restaurant - mixed between al la carte & buffet, definitely go there for bar b q... ribs were beautiful & entertainment outside that night good fun. Enid’s (not opened Monday) traditional Bajan... recommend fish of the day & Black Belly Big Tyme (think that’s it). Cocktails great - even though only a few specials on the menu all the usual ones are all available, strawberry daiquiris particularly delicious as was the Hit Man they made me with Gin. We did go to the piano bar (11-2am) after hearing good reports, we went on our last night & weren’t disappointed (karaoke) was a sing a long that night and very entertaining. Also ask about the free water sports... we only found out about these by another holidaymaker... you can have 1/2 hour speedboat rides north or south of the island & also a fishing trip, unfortunately the fishing trip was booked 4/5 days in advance so didn’t get to do this but the speed boat I did twice and got to see some well known properties with knowledgeable skippers. Also the morning walk at 8.15, We went with Adam through the golf course & got to see wild monkeys as well as lovely views and interesting trees & flowers. More
Pictures don’t tell stories
Just spent a few days at this property - arrived off a red eye and although they were aware the night porter may have been a little lean on the resort information. Nobody volunteered any either. The staff gloss over a very mediocre property and are it’s only redeeming quality. Food is overpriced hostel food and one of the taxi drivers that they get to drive you about Mr Vaughan may like to a little more honest about his prices they seem to fluctuate on what suites him on the day. Overall I would not be back. More
Ambience is amazing, views are also! Service top notch. Very very expensive, be warned! I have to admit, it quite took our breath away, the prices!! Also the waiter told us it would be better if we tipped him cash separately, when we had already added €100, he said they only get a small % the rest goes to management. Made us feel uncomfortable as we didn’t have enough cash on us? So it did spoil the end of the evening a bit. The food was fabulous, best steak I’ve had for ages, crab starter also, can’t fault the food at all. But the cost has put us off somewhat.More

Overall the resort was beautiful and the staff were friendly and obviously take pride in what they do. A word of advice to management: add $10 to the room rate if you must and just give everyone in-room wifi. At this point in time, nickel and diming people for wifi comes across as backwards. Room- Clean and tastefully decorated. Large balcony was a welcome and unexpected surprise. Food- Appeals mostly to British taste buds. Enid's was always a hit. Sunset lounge could be hit or miss but was best on buffet nights (especially BBQ night). It fell into the trap a lot of restaurants worldwide do: not sticking to the local cuisine they excel at. When we've been to France and Italy, we wouldn't have dreamt of ordering Caribbean food. Even if we could have gotten it, it would have been disappointing. Final note about meals - 2pm is too early to end lunch. Entertainment - It was ok. Day time scheduled activities were often cancelled. I suspect this was down to lack of participation as the average guest is age 70+ and inactive. Nighttime entertainment tended to be the same dated songs repeated by different singers while the same attention-craving extended family of guests put on a "show" for everyone on the dance floor. Again, I suspect the resort is just playing to their base but some variety would have been nice- game nights, karaoke etc. Drummer boys and their dancing companions were the best. All in all, a nice place where everyone is trying their best. If you're not retirement age, it may not be the most exciting time but still a decent time.More
Worst welcome ever
We arrived on Christmas Day for a stop over on our way to palm island resort. We expected a night of luxury and relaxation... Unfortunately when we arrived our treatment was terrible. Apparently there was some confusion about our payment via Elite island resorts, so the decision of the duty manager, Mr Nicholas Lovell was to leave us sat for one hour in the reception. At no time were we offered a welcome drink,even though it was Christmas Day and we had been travelling for 9 hours. It was very upsetting to be treated this way. Nicholas Lovell was evasive and unprofessional during this time. Eventually he made us pay twice for our stay. Our money was eventually refunded with no apologies or explanation from elite island resorts. The staff in the rest of the hotel seemed very pleasant,and we also had a nice meal,such a shame that one individual can spoil the whole experience. We would never go back under any circumstances.More
