CB is an old colonial hotel, the only nod to modern is the rooms, although don't expect to find a tv. The setting is gorgeous, two beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters. All day water sports where you can go diving, water ski, even inflatables. Food was at times exceptional, others it was mediocre. After two weeks it felt rather... More

So Happy that for the most part you both enjoyed your honeymoon at CB. Since your recent visit we now have a beach concierge service to help with guests requests while on the beach, so getting a cold beverage, towel and or snack happens quickly and frequently. More

The staff treats you like family and the food was outstanding. Curtain Bluff is on the south side of the small island of Antigua. (which is 9 miles by 12 miles). Roads are narrow and... More

It is always a bit difficult to be delayed due to flight issues, but at least you were able to return to CB for a bonus day.

CB is fortunate to be located between two pristine beaches, the rooms all located along our surf beach, which is cooled by the tropical trade winds, making AC hardly necessary. The calm beach is the place to either relax under a cabana with a cold drink in hand or be active and head out on a hobi cat, play a... More

This is not your typical caribbean all-inclusive resort. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was excellent. We had a room directly on the beach, which was just blissful.

We stayed here recently as an incentive trip with a group from my husband's company.

The food is 4 stars, the rooms are large, clean and comfortable. I was there in January 2016 and it could not have been better. The family was involved in tennis, snorkeling,swimming and the spa. The mini bar was stock to personal taste.

Thank you for your review. You are so right about the wine tasting and cooking classes, they are both great experiences with staff that really know their food and wine. Cooking classes are especially great as you can combine learning how to make a wonderful dish and pair it with an amazing wine from the cellar. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Flanked by water on both sides, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky promontory (bluff) that juts into the sea between two beautiful beaches. One is calm, ideal for swimming and watersports; the other beach is washed by ocean surf. 72 Rooms and suites, all with staggering seascape views, are spread out along the Surf Beach and up the bluff. There are two restaurants: the open-walled Tamarind Tree serving breakfasts and candle-lit dinners, and the Beach Cafe & Bar, where barefoot-casual lunches are enjoyed one step from the sand and a few feet from the water's edge.The resort's exceptional facilities include a championship tennis center, a fully equipped watersports center (scuba, Windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing, Hobie Cats and kayaks), a squash court and fitness center. When it's time to relax, there's our tranquil spa overlooking the sea, a beachside swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swaying in the shade of coconut palms.With the exception of a few above-and-beyond luxuries (Cuban cigars, vintage wines, spa treatments), everything is included in the room rate, making it one of the best values in the Caribbean. ... more   less
