My wife and I spent a week at East Winds in October this year and we loved every minute! The taxi journey from the airport was quite long, but the taxi driver (who, like everyone else we met, was very proud of his island) made it fun with his interesting facts on the island and its people. When we arrived...

THANK YOU FOR YOUR 11TH VISIT AND THE GLOWING REVIEW We recognize that there are many choices on where to spend a 10 day holiday in the Caribbean, but when guests return 11 times to the same resort and are still so complimentary about their experience, that really says something.
