We spent 14 idyllic days at East Winds in March. I would simply say that all that has been said about its excellence and the lovely folk that provide the wonderful service is true! Our first action on our return was to secure our booking for 2014 - need I say more?

I've never been moved to write a review of a holiday or hotel before. However after this experience, I felt compelled to spread the word about a truly unique and wonderful hotel. We only stayed for a week and wish it had been much, much longer. From our arrival, we were treated as valued guests and with a combination of...

We returned to East Winds for the second time, hoping and praying that our wonderful experience of our first visit would be repeated…well, it wasn’t…it was exceeded!

I'd had reservations about staying somewhere "all inclusive" but the very high quality of everything, and the fact it's really ALL included made it very relaxing and absolutely hassle-free. Excellent food, staff as good as everyone says, and all the facilities were great. We had a half-hearted go at the fitness trail in the mornings and added to the entertainment...
