A cottage style hotel in the popular Cupecoy Bay area. One or two storey buildings configured as studio rooms with minikitchens, set in tropical gardens. Spacious rooms well maintained. Many units have views over bay. Pool and bar. Gated, controlled access, parking. Cable, internet. Staff very helpful. Good value.

Got this room for my wife for a couple days before a tough exam time. Room was clean, smelled good, everything worked, king size bed was comfortable, shower was apparently the best. I did of course stock the fridge and set the room up. But, she didn't want to come back to our place down the road after 2 days....

My girlfriend and I really loved this resort. They are almost like small studio apartments. There is a lower level and an upper level each of which have a little outdoor patio area.

Dear Caroline T, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review of the Summit on TripAdvisor. I really appreciate it.

When my friends and I stayed here when we visited and had the two story villa at The Summit and it was hands down the most beautiful place I've stayed! We were practically right on the water with access to a beautiful pool and bar down below. Great place to stay!

Very comfortable, clean, quiet. Nice location for access to the school and easy to walk many places. Good food near by and easy walk to a couple beaches. Expect that this will be our first choice for any future visits. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Nice to have coffee available in the office anytime.

At least six times I have stayed at Summit, beginning 2008. Once again excellent for my needs. I love the ability to cook my own meals and afterward to sit on the porch or at the pool to see the wonders of the sky.

The hotel was very clean, which is important. The studio was spacious and comfortable. I was disappointed that the restaurant was closed and the yard needs some work, lawn needs cutting etc. Overall a good experience.
