Stayed here for 5 nights and we would not stay here again or recommend. The property grounds are very beautiful and while it has 4 pools on property and a restaurant, you will not get the feel of "a resort".

Stayed here for 5 nights and we would not stay here again or recommend. The property grounds are very beautiful and while it has 4 pools on property and a restaurant, you will not get the feel of "a resort". If you are comparing it to an international chain like Marriott or Hilton, it is not 4 stars by any means and you'll be very disappointed. Rooms are clean but noticed our AC vent was dirty. The most disappointing part was the restaurant, for the number of villas on property, they need a bigger restaurant with more menu options. The service was EXTREMELY slow. Apparently the restaurant is sub-leased and villas not owned by the same owner. Prices and decently priced and we enjoyed the coconut shrimp. Location was a disappointment as well. You have to walk across the street to the beach and not many restaurants around. Where the hotel is located is also less vibrant part of the island. For the price we paid, it was not worth it. Glady we ventured out - holetown has great food options as well as other parts of the island Read less

Really loved our stay at Beach view. Apartment's are great with every amenity you need. Maid service was probably the best and most comprehensive we have ever had and we have stayed in Hundreds of different establishments. Everything was left spotless and replenished daily. Lovely pool areas and plenty of Beds and Umbrella's . Gardens are kept immaculate. All the staff we met were excellent and it is clear this is down to the Leadership of the Lovely family that own the property and run it with a Passion and you can tell they care about the environment and the local wild life. A special mention to Kate who runs the hut and provides excellent frozen meals along with a range of products you need and was so kind & helpful to us. This resort will certainly meet your expectations. Read less
