We love Antiguans, they are so polite
The photos in the promotion of this property are certainly not a true representation of how the property is now. Having said that we were delighted to be greeted by a very friendly group of staff members, who were very supportive throughout our stay. I hope they have fixed the problem we had with the cooker in Room 6. The property is fairly isolated if you have no car, which we didn’t, but there are a few eating places within a 10 minutes walk which we used to experience the local food. I can recommend Cool Runnings and Boy Boys, and for something more expensive Papa Zouk. You can walk, as we did often, to the nearest beach in an easy 30 minutes. The walk into St John’s takes about 25 minutes to the cruise terminal, but beware of the extortionate prices in this area. With a car you can easily get to all the highlights of the island. Sunday evening you must get to Shirley Heights, steel band and reggae group until 11pm with reasonably priced food and drinks. Many, many fantastic beaches. But my highlight of the whole week was the friendliness of the Antiguan people. Everyone says Hello or Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening. It’s so refreshing.
