Yes that is what it feels like. This was our third visit and what a wonderful time we had with friends old and new and of course our amazing friends on the staff. So much laughter! Great food and our ocean room was lovely. It was my husbands birthday whilst there and he had the best day ever. A lovely cake, Junius’ rendering of happy birthday, Rowlands impromptu dance with him at breakfast - the day was magic Hopefully we can make a brief visit next year to see you all again Our regards and best wishes to everyone of you
Truly fantastic location and service
My wife and I visited here for 6 days for our 12 year anniversary. We left the kids with the grandparents and ventured out on our own. East Winds provided a wonderful spot to relax, enjoy the island, the food, and each other. The grounds are magnificent. Just sitting on your porch in the morning is enjoyable. The food is spectacular! I highly recommend taking the sailing trip to the Pitons, mud baths, and waterfall.
I have reviewed the experience of dining in this hotel many times and each time it becomes harder only because I am running out of suitable superlatives. We have had dinner twice in the last couple of weeks and the experience is totally to our liking. Everything about the evening is just so and needless to say will be returning in April when we are next on island. Meanwhile, thanks to all the staff who have contributed to our enjoyment and made us feel so welcome.
IMO - more that perfect
This is not your typical all inclusive, will not be for everyone though if you’re looking to chill, not be hassled for excursions, enjoy carefully selected exquisite menus, have a choice of sun loungers & like to only hear the sound of the wildlife around the pool, this’ll be for you. If you’re here to party, will be very disappointed
If you are looking for clean lines, Scandinavian minimalism in the rooms, white gloved butlers and silver service, look elsewhere. If you are looking for Caribbean charm, spacious and well equipped rooms, a warm welcome and top notch hospitality then you might have just stumbled on the place for you. This was our seventh sojourn at East Winds and each stay compels us to return. For those unfamiliar with East Winds, allow me to try to describe it. The property is a 90 minute taxi transfer through the rain forest from the main international airport. East Winds itself has thirty rooms/cottages, all set in lush gardens on a hillside sloping down to the beach. All accommodation is air conditioned and well equipped with fridge, mini-bar, tv etc. All rooms have been renovated/refurbished to a very high standard in the last couple of years. WiFi, a tiny fly in the ointment previously for some, is now a single integrated system which worked well. The staff at the resort are second to none. Nothing is any bother at all. The restaurant has enough room to accommodate all guests in one sitting, so lunch and dinner can be taken at leisure without any pre-booking of time slots, an annoyance that we have experienced at similarly priced hotels in the Caribbean. Food is really excellent with a buffet breakfast, buffet and bbq lunches and a four course served dinner with three options for each course and a couple of wine options each night(two each for red, white and rose). The wine options change daily. The beach and pool areas have ample sun beds and these are all placed so as to allow you more than enough shade, personal space and privacy. What makes East Winds unique are the staff. From booking to departure and at every point in between all interactions with the resort staff are friendly and faultless. Whether as a returning guest or as a first time guest, all of the staff do their utmost to make you feel welcome, comfortable and happy. All have an uncanny intuition of when to engage with guests and when to allow guests their own time and space. In past reviews I have named staff but that seems a little unfair to those not named as all try equally hard to make guests happy. One mention though, good luck to Roland who started his first week as we were departing. East Winds is our happy place and I think that many guests feel the same. There is an East Winds guest’s silly smile on even the most stern of faces. It is a smile that says “ we’ve found something quite special here, and we’re a little bit chuffed with ourselves”. I don’t like people but at East Winds I find myself chatting away with people that I wouldn’t even consider chatting to outside of the property. This time I even chatted to people from Wales an Scotland, breaking my golden rule of not conversing with the colonials. I am starting to waffle, so I will conclude. Thanks to Judith and all at East Winds, you have something very special and with each visit it becomes even more special. Regards, Simon and Carol
