This is not my first year at The Body Holiday one will it be my last. This is a place I come to laugh, play, work on my body, work on my mind and make new friends. My room is 154 and you should ask for this block of rooms. They are not the biggest but they are so sweet and so close to the water. BH is as clean as clean can be and the gardens are lush. The amenities are top notch and the food is truly amazing and with Aussie Chef Alan at the helm food is just getting better. There are idles of options from Uber healthy vegan and all refined free to the best salads and delicious decadent desserts. Wines are lovely and cocktails fun. I have never met someone who is not returning and that says a ton. Do not miss a trip to the ITAL Gardens for a hike, veg pick, prep and eat experience. I guarantee you will think it is worth the price. Check in with me if you have any questions. Oh and find Samantha in the restaurant, and Stacia the masseuse and say hi.

This all inclusive resort really does have it all. The Staff and Service are truly exceptional. It feels like they all enjoy working there and it's obvious that many have been there for a long time, and were greeting returning guests so warmly. The amount and quality of activities is incredible including the water sports, the extensive exercise class schedule and the off-site activities. There's really no reason to leave the resort.m The food was very good, and in some cases exceptional. Lots of food choices throughout the day and many at lunch and dinner. My only "complaint" would be that it's hard to get into Windows because it's such limited seating; I wish we had known that in advance so that we could have booked before our arrival. Having a spa treatment every day was a dream and the massage therapists were excellent. We had a medical emergency while we were there and the management staff could not have been kinder and more supportive in helping us manage a difficult situation. Read less

As a Travel Agent I am pretty well travelled and consider myself a harsh critic, particularly where staff and service are concerned! However Bodyholiday you have niche product here with a winning combination of sport, spa, good food and excellent service and All Inclusive too. I normally wouldn't consider AI now our family are adults but we were all very impressed. I think overall your product, your staff training and attention to detail is exceptional. Stunning location. Extremely well kept property, clean and well furnished throughout. Rooms were lovely, well furnished and a good size. Very comfortable beds. Staff throughout the property remembered guest names (even first timers, who are in the minority here, as it is so very popular with returning guests). The beach flag drinks ordering service was great, prompt and friendly and I never once felt like an All Inclusive customer getting a cheap brand or small measure. Beach ambassadors were friendly and keen to help sort beds together etc. Activities were wide ranging and very well run throughout - around 36 to choose from every day! Watersports were well run, frequent and available. Inclusive Spa treatments ranged from exceptional to okay depending on the therapist, as some are young and need more training! The food selection was fresh, wide ranging and varied and just the right sized portions. The piano bar was a great place for pre dinner drinks with a fabulous atmosphere. The wish to phase out single use plastic was also encouraging and evident too. The non tipping of staff during the holiday is also a really lovely touch. I wasn't aware of it and tried to tip the staff member who carried our luggage to the room. She refused the tip and said we could make a donation at the end if we felt service had been exceptional! Brilliant! Well done Bodyholiday thank you for a brilliant holiday I will recommend you whole heartedly to many of my clients! Read less
