We ate from both of them and the food was fresh and delicious. There are 3 swimming pools here on the resort and immediate access to the beach. There is designated smoking areas and security walking around the resort. They also had live entertainment with dancers along with a DJ who was plays good music. My mom got married here at the beach and it was beyond beautiful. The wedding decorations and sand ceremony was so dreamy and the photographer was very friendly. He got some really amazing photos throughout the ceremony. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, all of the staff offered excellent hospitality. I loved it here and I would definitely come back! Read less

We stayed in a fab junior suite room with views overlooking the sea..Bougainvillea really surpassed our expectations and accommodated us with greets of smiles and warm handshakes. The walks along the beach was one of the highlights of our evenings and the calm of the sea at this time of the day was a welcome contrast to the daily lashings of a boisterous but refreshing sea. The west coast seem tohave more tranquil, gently loping water at their beaches but the beach at this resort is wonderful. Great for young and old to pretend to be surfers or just 'play' with the waves. This trip was to celebrate 25 years marriage/anniversary and although we originally wanted to stay at the resort where we honeymooned back in 1993, (Heywoods, then Almond Beach), Bougainvillea gave us a superb experience to mark the occasion with champagne on arrival. My husband and I have travelled to many countries and stayed at various resorts with good service but this is the first time we have ever decided to return to a resort previously stayed in; next month we'll be back at Bougie, again. We are optimistic that we will have more of the same brilliant service like last year. Read less

I have today returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel, on a bed and breakfast board in a junior suite with balcony, I went with my girlfriend. The hotel is just fabulous, if you are looking at reviews thinking about where to stay, I think it is safe to say you will not be disappointed here. On arrival we were greeted with a rum punch which was nice after the long flight. Luggage etc. was all taken care of and we were shown around our room and how to work the TV, fans and air con etc. The breakfast is plentiful, and you can choose in a buffet style from a range of hot or cold food, eggs are also made to order so things like omlettes etc. are available too. The staff were helpful and friendly, very attentive and I can honestly say I have never seen a team work so hard anywhere in the hospitality market, so the management should be proud. There was evening entertaiment too, but we did not stay for this as we were too busy out exploring. The pool bar is great for relaxing and speaking to other guests, Jose was great for the banter and cocktails and Nicholas was very friendly and attentive too. We ate there a couple of times and the food was good, the hotel is also situated right on the beach so you can go for a nice stroll too. I have nothing negative at all to say about this hotel. There was no lift to our room which was on the fifth (top) floor, but this did not bother us in the slightest as we are quite active anyway. Some of the older guests I noticed had lower floors which made sense. I had a massage from Nikkita who works in the spa and it was the best I have ever had. The gardens,beach and pools are constantly being seen to and cleaned. I am not sure of the mans name, but there was a tall slim man who worked on the gardens tirelessly and he always made an effort to say hello which I thought was a nice touch. Perfect for couples and families, we will be going back to this hotel without a doubt. Read less
