I've had the luck to be able to travel around the world. Very few places have ever connected so deeply as did Goldeneye. From the moment you arrive, you begin to feel a warmth and tranquility surrounded by tropical beauty. The staff are genuinely warm and friendly, the accommodations are an understated elegance, the food is fresh and amazing and... More

It is always tough to find the right balance in the Caribbean between informality and functionality but Goldeneye nails it. It is the antithesis of the 'jacket and tie for dinner' style of hotel (that has it's place in the market) so if you want to kick your shoes off for the week and really wind down in the most...

We purchased a day pass to visit Goldeneye. As James Bond fans we were keen to see where Ian Fleming had lived and written many of his books. The site was beautiful, the staff welcoming and we had a wonderful day, but had no opportunity to look around Ian Fleming's house or learn more about the history of his time... More

I have nothing to complain about. The resort is absolutely beautiful. The accommodations are beyond expectations. We stayed in a lagoon villa. You can literally step off your porch into the water. If you are looking for privacy and luxury, this is your place.

Bit of a trek to get too but what a great place. I was fortunate to stay in the Fleming Villa with friends and had it exclusively. The service is excellent and the resort very exclusive. Add in a bit of James Bond mystique and you have a special holiday destination. One for every bucket list.

We stayed in a two-bedroom beach villa for two weeks and want to immediately return! We loved everything about this resort from the gorgeous villa to the lagoon where we swam, paddleboarded and kayaked and the restaurants where the food was delicious and the sea where snorkeling was such fun.

We rented a lagoon cottage for a couple days and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was clean and the lagoon off the back was really nice. The outside shower was a nice change from an inclosed one. The first time you see the property approaching the bridge it will bring a smile to your face! Let's change that... More
