My wife and I went here for our Honeymoon in 2011. Everything seemed new, neat, and organized. It was well-maintained, and the price was right, so we got the best room they had, which was a nice split-level (bedroom downstairs, family room area upstairs) overlooking the ocean. The on-site restaurants were all very good, and the staff were all great...

Having previously been to this hotel in 2008 we wanted to go back in Feb 2010 but were told by Virgin that the hotel refurbishment would not be completed before May 2010. We subsequently stayed at the Sea Breeze which is a little further south towards Bridgetown. During our holiday we took a power boat trip up the coast and...

This hotel was supposed to be a virgin exclusive hotel at 4 stars. I have never seen a hotel run like it! My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon here, and the food wasn't great at all, and faults reported for our room were not sorted throughout our stay. Missing tiles in the bathroom, freezing cold shower, not...

We stayed at this hotel in 2008 for our wedding. We upgraded our room and it was lovely and had a stunning view. My inlaws didn't upgrade and I have to say I didn't like their room at all very dark and dingy. Food and service were fine. We got married there and the wedding was perfect. Everything was done...

We travelled to the Escape Hotel and Spa in February to celebrate my partners 50th birthday and to watch the England v W Indies test match. True, prior to refurbishment the hotel was tired in it's appearance but this was more than compensated for by the friendly staff and the service they offered. We had the best 2 weeks holiday...
