The answer to this can be summed up in a few words ... within a couple of minutes of arriving at East Winds it was as though we had never left 12 months previously. When you return to a hotel you have visited before there is a bit of apprehension that there will have been changes from previous visits, any...

WHY ARE WE SO LUCKY TO HAVE HAD YOU BACK AGAIN? They say the true way to differentiate between a great hotel and a mediocre one, is the level of repeat business it receives. Your testament to the fact that you have visited East Winds Inn on numerous occasions is a great compliment for everyone at the resort, and we...

After 4 nights at Jalousie Plantation and 4 nights at Ti Kaye Village (see separate reviews), surely a week at East Winds could not match those standards. But they certainly did, exceeding our already high expectations. Once again, the great thing is the contrast in character; this is a really relaxed, spacious all-inclusive property. On arrival we were greeted by...

We went to this little touch of paradise last November for our honeymoon. Our choice was based on few things, we wanted a beautiful, romantic and peaceful place with the possibility to go around the island and do some activities. Of course Tripadvisor reviews have been very important. We stayed for a week and the weather was fine, rain for...
