We rented Villa 89 for a family Thanksgiving vacation. Janice, our cook, made the most wonderful breakfasts and her Thanksgiving feast was a real wow! Jamaican jerk turkey will become a favorite at our upcoming dinners. Cecil, our butler, was a fountain of information, always available for rides to the main hotel, and made any of our "problems" disappear. Joy... More

A five night stay with my wife pre-Thanksgiving meant the resort was only moderately busy. An upgrade to an ocean front Hibiscus suite was appreciated. A drippy vent above the bed -- condensation? -- was a problem on two separate occasions. Very traditional and conservative furnishings.

yes indeed it was one of the best hotel we ever stayed and we are still missing those relaxing moments at the pool. We tried both of their ala carte restaurants the Sea Grape terrace and the Il Giardino and their cousin was excellent. In my opinion the Deluxe Ocean room was the best value for our money!
