Everything about Hermitage Bay is fantastic. The people were wonderful, the food was fantastic, the beach was serene and beautiful and the room was spacious and comfortable. We have been to many resorts and islands in the Caribbean, and without a doubt, this was our best experience ever. We will be returning again!

A truly remarkable experience. Sometimes when you arrive at a hotel I just doesn't live up to expectations and/or the pictures. Not so with Hermitage Bay. The entire team makes you feel welcomed and pampered from the moment you land at the airport (literally) until you depart. Beach - Amazing Food - Awesome Suites with plunge pools - to die for I'll make one final comment - I believe that part of the experience was the incredible staff. Not just 1 or 2 - it was everyone. Kudos to the entire team - it sets you apart and made for a very memorable experience. We'll be back.

Hermitage is everything we could ever dreamed of for our honeymoon. Top-notch views and service - could go on and on about the incredible food as well. You are treated like royalty here and all staff goes above and beyond with anything you may need. Plenty of things to do around like excursions if that is your style, but more than enough peace & quiet to relax. Cannot recommend Hermitage enough!

I cannot begin to express my thanks to all the Hermitage Bay staff, from top to bottom, for what I feel was an extremely successful trip during these trying times. The attention to detail this resort is known for carried right over into being diligent about every guest and staff member's health in this new day of constant cleaning and disinfecting. The entire property is immaculate. A great deal of thought has gone into laying out a strategic plan for keeping all of the staff and guests safe and healthy. Masks are the norm throughout the resort, with all staff. All of the guests followed suit and wore a mask whenever they moved about the resort and around others. We felt completely safe, yet not overburdened by the experience of wearing a mask. The restaurant, bar, lounge, and pool areas are open-air and expansive for the number of guests the resort will accommodate. If you want to escape away to a place where you can relax away from the day-to-day strains of this pandemic-Hermitage Bay is your respite. Now, the really good stuff. Since Hermitage Bay is setting a very high standard on their COVID protocols, we were able to have one of the greatest travel experiences we have ever had. All of the 5 Star reviews you read are accurate. Even before Lisa greeted us at the airport, I knew we were in good hands. Judith had worked with me back and forth for weeks over email. She made sure that everything was completely set up before we arrived. From a special suite request (suite 25), a 50th birthday dinner, an anniversary dinner, and in-room couples spa treatment, all the way down to extra diet cokes in our fridge. The service was impeccable! The food was delicious. The variety and creativity of the chef were evident in the menu changes daily. (We loved our cooking class with Sugar!) We often had Jilian as our server, and she was wonderful. So sweet, with just a hint of deadpan sarcasm, seemingly reserved just for me, first thing in the morning. This and my daily porridge started each day out with a smile. The beach is quiet and secluded. I never got tired of sitting in a lounger looking out at the yachts anchored in the small protected bay. Devin, Geron, George, Anthony, Stoney and Levique were wonderful and we loved getting to know them all. We never "wanted" for anything whether we were by the ocean or the resort pool or our own plunge pool. We were sad to leave, but like everyone said..."You must leave so you can return."
