Our Happy Place in the world, the resort is beautiful, the grounds are lovely, staff just amazing and have become friends over the years, they always remember us. The food is great, good selection. Lots of activities, Fire dancing, Island Night, sailing in the lagoon, (my husbands really happy place), paddle boards, 2 beautiful pools. Just an amazing place to chill, enjoy the sun, friendly staff, walk to town or just read a book - see you next year everyone. Janet Shane and Katie

We were a party of 4 adults and 2 primary age children. The staff were warm, friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to help with transport and suggestions of things to do. It was a pity that the food other than breakfast which was very good, did not live up to the same standard. Amenities are ideal with children's club, tennis, canoes, etc. Shame was that the pool was not heated and unless you were constantly moving in the water it was not enjoyable. I can recommend but with so many alternative destinations look hard before you choose.

This is a 4star low-level resort like hotel not far from town.
We were greeted by a member of staff dressed in a traditional costume and blowing a conch shell.
Reception was rather slow because we arrived rather early.
The rooms were spacious and clean and the bathrooms were fine. There is free wifi, tea and coffee and a flat-screen TV.
The hotel grounds are well worth a walk.
The restaurant is big and serves good meals including a good breakfast.
There is another bar/restaurant area next to the lobby.
Getting to town is easy and is walk able but in the hot sun you might prefer one of the taxis contracted to the hotel.
A very good place to stay.

Stayed here for seven nights, resort was a great 4 star place, staff were friendly and room was spacious and clean. Pool was a good size and there were lots of activities for the kids. Kids club ladies were great, making arts and crafts and traditional skirts with the kids. Grounds were well maintained and catamarans were fun to take out into the lagoon. Kids eat free with any main meal which is was great. A few negatives
1. Very limited amount of pool loungers - if you didn’t get to the pool early you had to sit on the ground.
2. Breakfast food and selection was disappointing - exactly the same food for 7 days straight and food pretty bland (although made to order omelette were great).
Overall a relaxing stay - surprisingly not too busy with a handy location close to town.

We had 3 days at the holiday inn the staff at the front desk were very welcoming and helpful as we had paid for our parents room as a gift the lady was wonderful. We stayed in a bungalow the accommodation was beautiful and perfect. It was our daughters birthday the awesome staff heard the family wish her happy birthday about 10 minutes later all the staff came out with a cake and singing happy birthday to her.Not to mention the man who place burnt sticks into the shape of a heart saying happy birthday Emily. Highly recommend.
