Recommend highly. From our initial email conversations with Glynda and Simeon to the outstanding reception/bar/wait service that Lucinda, Lily, Septima, Sylvia, Kirby, Windel, Haig, and Jervin provided, we couldnt have been more pleasantly surprised by the high level of attentiveness and friendliness of all of the staff - even those who we didnt know by name. The stream of attention...

Hello KerenHaugh Wow! What a great review. Even more than the delight at reading the review is the happiness we all feel as a team when a guest has a great holiday, enjoys lovely food and relaxation, has a few adventures and disconnects from day to day life. That is what East Winds is all about. See you again soon,...

As 99.99% of other reviewers note, East Winds is perfection. The setting is idyllic, lovely cottages nestled in the beautiful and tranquil gardens, the only noise the song of the many birds. Paths wind down towards the restaurant and beach, staff greet you with a friendly hello, and little lizards scuttle out of the way. The vibe is relaxed. And...

Yes, our eleventh time, and we've already booked our next holiday at this wonderful place. Why? Because of the staff - and we will NOT fall for the temptation to mention any names, simply because each and every one is part of the whole East Winds Experience. Smiles and friendliness, service and attention in abundance! Meals, whether at breakfast time,...

I seem to be in the minority when it comes to my memories of the food at East Winds. I will explain why my review is only a 3. Breakfast. Unimaginative, repetitive and uninspired. Eggs, baked beans burnt bacon everyday. Croissants stale and glutinous. Lunch, make sure you get there at opening or on non BBQ days the food is...

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.

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.

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.
