Great Suite, fantastic beachfront views, would go back again (1st full week of October 2015).
"We have stayed at the Royal West Indies since the late nineties. But this time around we decided to rent the Calabash suite.... a second floor oceanfront location. The difference was that we knew exactly where we were staying on the property (great amenities, clean and access to various kinds of information about the island and the resort). We definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great getaway."

"We stayed at the Hodge Lodge with my two sons ages 9 and 13 and another family with a daughter 16. The house is beautiful and very well furnished. I recommend doing as much cooking as possible there as it has everything you need or want. The boys spent days fishing in the private lagoon and snorkeling on the private beach. They saw all kinds of fish inculuding a shark and a baracuda. The use of the golf kart was a huge hit. The house has family games which we played everynight at the large round table. We spent sometime at the Como resort. It is stunning. The spa is perfect and the pool is a fun place for kids. The beach chairs at the resort are luxorious as are the towels. The prices are also exhorbitant so be prepared. This house is very secluded. It is a private island getway in every respect. A dream!!"

"We looked at every villa before choosing this one. What a great pick! The villa is beautiful, clean and very well kept. The owners did not skimp on bath towels, bedding, beach towels, cookware, dishes, etc. It is nicely decorated with a great beach feel and perfect for relaxing. The pool area is great with the big shade cabana and views of the beach. The landscaping is very colorful and lush. The cabana on the beach is a great addition. When i walked by other villas, the people staying there had to drag out various chairs to the beach. So nice touch!
Cari came and cleaned midweek and did a great job. AFter watching her scrub, you know that it is very very clean there. When we were leaving, she was back as well as the gardner, pool person, etc. Like a well oiled machine. She also knew I was a bit nervous about walking in the dark to the marina and when we arrived, there were 4 new flashlights. Kudos Cari!
That being said, as is stated, only the bedrooms are air conditioned. If you are traveling in the warmer months as we did, the living areas/kitchen are extremely warm. Even with all windows/doors open and fans going, it is stifling.
Also if you have little ones or elderly, access to the bottom floor bedrooms is by a narrow spiral staircase. When arriving, you should carry your bags to the side door on the bottom level otherwise you will taking bags up the front staircase then trying to get them down a narrow spiral case.
Construction is on going. It doesn't look like its going to end for a very long time. It did not bother us though. The workers do more sitting around and arguing with each other than working!
Having TV's in each bedroom would be nice.
Thanks Cari and Debbie!"

"This house is amazing. As soon as you drive through the gates, you are surrounded by everything that says 'vacation'. The house is perfect for entertainment but at the same time you can find your isolation if needed. All rooms open up to the inside and outside for easy pool/beach access. Everything is decorated beautifully and comfortably. It was hard to leave the amazing infinity pool because the view of the beach was extraordinary. But the beach is second to none. The house is equipped with rafts, paddle boards, other floaties, and toys that can be easily carried to and from the beach which is only a few yards from the house. Overall, this house has everything you need to keep you entertained and relaxed! Beautiful views and not far from resorts, restaurants and the town. I will definitely go back!"
