We absoloutely LOVED this hotel! From the moment we arrived for our (originally) 3 night stay we were so impressed! The welcome was friendly and informative, the gardens are immaculate, the pool area so appealing-surrounded by plants and spotlessly clean. The rooms are simple but everything you need and very spacious, and again really clean! Each with their own patio...

Clean, organised, friendly and spacious accommodation. Pool is a perfect place to end the day after a busy time walking and exploring the island. Great value for money. Is away from some of the hustle and bustle but central. Bus stop just up the road so access to the island is easy. Plan to come back with our kids. Thanks...

A really nice privately owned resort, the owner was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The whole resort was really well set up so it was pleasant sitting outside looking out onto gardens. The pool was central to all the rooms and was a pleasure to sit by with plenty of shade. We hope...

We stayed in a Superior Queen Bure and were most pleased with the accommodations. Very clean, lots of room. Exterior grounds well maintained and pool and BBQ area excellent. Kim was very attentive on check in and even brought extra ice from nearby.

Absolutely loved our stay. Island Leisure Resort is as relaxing as it sounds, from the friendly staff to the impeccable rooms. No bugs in sight! Nothing was too hard for the staff and they were very helpful when I lost an earring at the pool. We loved the champagne and chocolates in our room when we arrived that we got...

We stayed for 2 nights in October. The Bure was lovely, aircon was appreciated and the pool was bliss... The hosts were helpful and there's a snack bar onsite that serves the staples (chips, beer etc). We will return!
