This is lovely hotel, its comfortable and relaxing but not over the top. The rooms are large and minimal. The only drawback is some of the staff in the restaurant can be unfriendly but that should not put you off coming. The beach is fabulous and a week here does charge up ones batteries.

We were here for our 20th anniversary. The room was beautiful, in the morning monkeys would walk across the roof to the palm trees for nuts. The restaurant was one of the best on Barbados. The beach was narrow as many are now in the Caribbean. While we were there turtles were nesting on the beach. All water sports were...
