We just returned from a week at East Winds and found it to be a unique experience, quite different than anything we have experienced over the years from larger all-inclusive resorts. First of all, as the only American guests during most of our time at East Winds, we truly enjoyed sharing time with our new British friends, who were most...

We were looking for a small, quiet all-inclusive resort and we found it. The best thing about East Wind is the staff. Desmond picked us up from the airport and gave us a great overview of the island. We were warmly welcomed at reception, given a cold drink, shown around the resort and were shown our room. We stayed in...

We enjoyed our ten days at East Winds. Cottages in lovely tropical gardens. Good food, great service. A very friendly and relaxed hotel. We met many people that were there for the third time or more which says a lot for the way the hotel is run and upheld its standards. The pricing includes everything. The weather Jan/Feb was very...

Agree with all previous reviews. Staff ensure the rating of this hotel, food excellent at breakfast and lunch but evening meals were hit and miss if not fish lovers and portions small. Wines not always to our taste and no choice in evening as they were chosen for you although there was a selection of two whites and two reds....

Hi Lynda G Thanks for the review and fr giving us 5 stars. You are right that we do have amazing fish in the Caribbean and it is a real strength of the menu, I am sorry that fish isn't your favorite. It is worth knowing that if we have a guest who would prefer a different choice of menu...

We stayed for 12 days in January. We were looking for a small, quiet, all inclusive hotel that would be friendly and relaxing. We certainly found that. And more!!

Enjoyed an idyllic stay for 12 nights at Eastwinds in November. It is a gorgeous place to chill out and relax - wonderful staff and friendly atmosphere overseen by the MD, Judith.

We had a great 10 day stay. The hotel sits within a beautiful garden, has a wonderful, elegant beachside restaurant. The rooms are little cottages dotted around the grounds. exceptionally good food, and a lovely beach. But the key is the staff. Not just professional, but individually charming. You end up making genuine friends with them all. Just one example...
