Amazing location on a very private beach. This is some of the best swimming you can find. Quiet, but within walking distance to a great restaurant next door and a local market. Next door to the local college. The restaurant and bar are quiet but very good. You can take a taxi easily to any of the towns on the island. The staff is very professional and friendly. It seems like the locals are very friendly. Don't forget to pack a bottle opener and lots of sunscreen.
Stayed one night due to bad weather and a canceled flight. had a great view from the room, however, the room was full of ants. Breakfast was very disappointing. There was no bacon, no bagels in fact four things we ordered were not available. Coffee was cold. Very pleasant waitress was very embarrassed and said she had no one to complain to. Very disappointing would not recommend.
This review is for those considering a day pass... I booked a day pass for $110 with high hopes, but was sadly disappointed. I could not believe it, but it's true that you can't even use the hotel towels for that price... The place was pretty with a lot of statues, but it was very dated and a bit run down, in desperate need of updates/renovations. The beach was nice, but the stairs to go down were old and worn and sometimes crooked. There were also areas of the beach where you could see broken concrete. The beach loungers were supportive, but again, some were broken. I'm sure this place was beautiful when they first opened... I assumed I would not encounter food issues as other reviewers had since I was not subject to a time constraint. Unfortunately, I was wrong... the free 2 course lunch that comes with the day pass is the bare minimum. First of all they have 2 different menus. If you're visiting with a day pass, they won't even let you see the other menu, not even to order food and pay for it. The day pass menu is so basic, consisting mostly of sandwiches (that don't mention fries or sides of any sort). I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was literally only seasoned with salt. They did not include the vegetable it was supposed to come with or even tartar sauce... just fish & chips, literally... we ordered the sherbet for dessert that was supposed to come with cream and fruit.. we never even saw dessert & of course the restaurant conveniently closed once we received our orders. Other customers who were staying at the hotel were also dissatisfied with their food/orders... Cambridge beaches let's you use their facilities for free with spa service, willowbank, grotto bay and many other comparable resorts offer day passes for a fraction of the cost. I thought at least the food and service would justify the hefty price tag to spend the day at this resort, but it's really a complete ripoff!
Cole at the front desk made our day by accommodating us last minute and providing us access to the beach, beach chairs and towels. After visiting the Horseshoe beach and seeing it overcrowded with all the American tourists, we went to elbow beach that didn’t provide beach chairs/umbrellas. So we ended up here around the sunset. Cole, you are the best!
We were a group of 8 purchasing a "resort for the day pass" coming to port on a cruise. Upon arriving the entire lobby was under renovation with workers everywhere and materials all over the floor. We didn't see a hotel guest at all and felt we were the only party there. No-one met us on the beach for assistance as promised by the front desk. No towels are included! Restaurant food was good and service there was wonderful. Unfortunately I do not recommend this for a good resort experience for the monies we paid for "Resort for a Day"
