We recently visited Desroches Island. Beautiful island and our villa was stunning. However we were very disappointed with the service as the people were not very helpful or friendly. This is understandable as they were soon to have no job due to the closure of the hotel soon as the four seasons hotel is taking over. We were made to...

This was the most surreal destination I have ever been to. From the minute we arrived I felt relaxed and all my stresses were washed away. We arrived on the charter plane, all the staff waiting on the runway to greet us like we were some sort of royalty. Elitsa drove us through the island on a golf cart (they...

As the resort closes in the New Year for further development we are submitting this review as a thank you to the team on Desroches for two wonderful weeks from which we have just returned and also as a plea to the new owners not to change things so much as to lose the charm of the island.

We had the most extraordinary holiday here. We've been before but this time, we upgraded to a 3 bed villa and that made the holiday super special. I was almost in tears when I left, especially given that the resort has been sold and will be closed for a year as from January whilst it is being renovated. Go there...
