5 out of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

Pros: Friendly, complimentary shuttle, restaurant
Location: Horse riding with Rainforest Riding. Lobster at Keeping It Real. Emerald Pool. Breakfast at Corner Cafe
Of course the accommodations are not equivalent to US 5 star, but in comparison to the area, you could not ask for more. The atmosphere and hospitality was phenomenal. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, we were made to feel like family. The driver, Malcolm, entertained us the entire ride by telling us all about the island. We were greeted at the door by name, given a tour of the hotel while being escorted to our room which was sufficiently comfortable. The view was magnificent. The owners were personally available at any time for any reason from the complimentary shuttle rides to friendly conversations. We ate at as many restaurants and cafes as we had time for, but The Champs restaurant was by far the best. While we were there, they were in the process of installing a swimming pool and updating the rooms. Even more to make this place the best choice. We will choose this place for our next stay on the island.
