We’re certainly pleased you loved Sugar Ridge so much you wanted to turn around and come right back, but we were certainly glad you spend some time with us. What makes a great vacation is simple rest and relaxation, and we believe that starts with a wonderfully comfortable bed, bedding and pillows. We hope you can find a peaceful sleep... More

Found it difficult to say whether this was average or very good, it's somewhere in the middle with some excellent elements and some not so good. Feels more like a business hotel than somewhere to spend your holiday. We were there for two weeks but most people come for a few nights and there were quite a few people there... More

It would appear from your review there were uneven moments in your two week stay with Sugar Ridge, and some we wish we would have heard about while you were on site. We’re surprised that you did not like your dining experiences in our restaurants as most guests typically find just the opposite – that our menu is diverse and... More

The best trip ever! I totally enjoyed Murphy visit. The room was beautiful! I would return again and again! The staff was extremely acommodating. The online pics does not do this place justice. The resort is very maintained. And the pool is simply beautiful , .

Arrived at Sugar Ridge on the 24th Sept 2016 for a two week stay. Rooms clean and comfortable, staff very friendly especially Carleen who serves breakfast and also runs the pool bar. Not ideal for anyone who may have walking issue our room had a little uphill walk and 59 stairs to reach the room.

Attractive hotel on hillside above Jolly Harbour. Longish uphill walk to room but hotel will take you up in a van on request. Private verandah and plunge pool. Fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer.

Sugar Ridge is the perfect vacation resort; the decor and the ambience speaks volumes! The staff is professional, friendly, and very accommodating. It's everything in one place, the pools, spa, gym, and the restaurants. The beach is a quick ride down the hill and I found the best places to shop!
