Stayed at the Catamaran in February 2014 for two weeks and should have written this earlier. Don't go here if you want 5* Luxury - do go here if you want to be looked after really well and experience the real Antigua. Nothing was too much trouble for Fiona Bailey and her staff - Can I hire a car? No...

This is a fantastic small hotel with a private beach, amazing views and a wonderfully lovely staff and restaurant. I spent 5 nights here and enjoyed every minute, whether sitting on my comfortable patio overlooking the harbor, sailing one of their free-to-use sailfish sailboats, or sleeping with the door and windows open and listening to the water rush the beach....
