We were very appreciative to be upgraded to a large suite for our 6 night stay. There was a full kitchen and washer/dryer and safe. The WIFI works well in the rooms and by the pool. The shuttle bus is reliable as long as you book and takes you to Georgetown, public beaches and shopping centre which is useful if...

Had a last minute trip on a weekend were everything on the Island was booked...except the Holiday Inn. We were able to secure a two bedroom suite. Each room had a separate bath, with the Master having a Jacuzzi tub and shower and rather large vanity. Plenty of storage and a generous amount of hangars. Room also has a full...

We spent the week in a condo in West Bay but after bad weather at home forced a change of flights and an extra day in paradise (I know, so sad, lol), we used points for a free night here. Free or not, it was terrific. The king suite was newly renovated and smelled of fresh paint and appeared brand...

My husband and I spent a week at the Holiday Inn for our honeymoon. We paid extra for a suite with a kitchenette, which was great. We did end up washing some of the dishes before we could use them as we could tell there was lipstick or food residue left on them from the last guests. We were pleasantly...

If you like to snorkel then go right from the dock at head out towards deeper water. About 100 feet from the end of the dock there's a wall that drops off into the deep. There were plenty of fish there to see and it was very easy to get to, only about 6 feet deep.

Dear FloridaNYSP Thank you so much for your reviewing of our hotel. I am pleased you enjoyed your experience here. You are the first person to review about the snorkeling and it is greatly appreciated. Most people don't know how great the snorkeling is on the North Sound, especially our dock area. There is so much to see even if...

The Holiday Inn is a good base for exploring the island. You'll want a rental vehicle as the shuttle gets booked up and doesn't take you to all the great area attractions. We stayed in a suite overlooking the pool and water. Would recommend the upgrade. The front desk manager Omid is great - went above and beyond.

We just returned from a weeks stay at the Holiday Inn and it was absolutely wonderful. The suites are up to date and fully equipped-even laundry facilities.

The room was excellent, the yard was excellent, however, there is no beach here. There is a great pool and great area to jet ski. Beautiful wharf to walk out on. The property is out of the way and you need a rental car to stay here if you want to see anything else on the island.

I traveled with a friend here in January 2017 and we had a great experience. The front desk was very helpful, the rooms were clean/big, and we had a decent view (see attached pic). We regretted not spending more time by the pool as we did not realize there were water sports on site (kayaking, canoeing, jet skis) although no...
