We visited Antigua for the first time the day after Christmas, staying through the New Year. This property is absolutely gorgeous. It was fully booked for the holiday season but that had no impact at all. The property is very intimate and allows for maximum privacy while still providing a very nice, warm ambiance in the lounge, the restaurant and the grounds in general. The staff is wonderful. We knew this before we even checked in as I had dealt with Sherma for many weeks prior to our arrival with a host of questions. I read a negative comment about Wesley - It could not be the same charming, funny gentleman who did so much to make our stay memorable. If you wish to go out and about, Christina knows every treasured spot on the island -- all of her recommendations were spot on!
The room was spacious, spotless and chock full of amenities. The pool is lovely and overlooks the beach and water. The beach has lots of nice, cozy places to relax - complete with hammocks.
The food at the Inn was wonderful. Breakfast was buffet or a la carte with options to fit a universal palate. Dinner at the formal restaurant high on the cliffside was tasty with a great selection of local ingredients.
The location of this property is fantastic. There is a free water taxi that can take you around the cove and delivers your within steps of lots of great restaurants and bars. A short hike on a nearby trail takes to Shirley Heights with breathtaking views of the harbor.
New Year's Eve was a blast -- a great party with one of the best bands on the Island. We could not have ended 2011 and welcomed 2012 in a better place. We left Antigua having made lots of new friends and looking forward to returning soon.
