The restaurants and bars all have a really great atmosphere and the food is just excellent.
Reef View Hotel
We stayed in one of the suites...it was incredible. Chloe met us at the airport, she was the best. She made our stay seamless.
Great location and the view was amazing. The staff were very friendly.
The palm bungalows were spacious, clean and located close to everything.
Lovely food, lovely beach, service was superb. The 24hr transfer service was very thoughtful.
Vishal & Katy Krishna
The entire stay was flawless. Pool and pavilion were amazing and all organised activities perfect. Staff extremely professional and friendly.
Loved Peninsula 8 with the space, buggy and private plunge pool it offered.
The staff were amazing. The hotel was beautiful. A great experience and a wonderful way to relax.
I liked having access to all the facilities and the ease of traveling around the Island.
Although a very large hotel everything was well organised i.e. getting to and returning to airport, mealtimes, nice big swimming pool, free buses stopped at the hotel. The bar was sometimes a bit on the quiet side.
We loved our whole holiday and will be back.
