All inclusive meets boutique resort: the perfect combination for a relaxing and romantic holiday.
East Winds is the perfect small, intimate resort in the most beautiful setting with an amazing beach and a team who cannot do enough for their guests. While there may only be one restaurant the menu changes daily and the quality of the food and drink exceeded our expectations and we never saw the same dish twice. Excellent value and service. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a stay at East Winds.
Amazing Wedding, Amazing Stay!!
My husband and I had our wedding her and the staff went above and beyond what we had expected, giving us the wedding of our dreams! The staff were amazing to us and our guest through the whole stay! We honestly can't say enough about it! The rooms and resort were gorgeous, the food amazingly delicious, and the staff are the friendliest, most helpful and attentive we've experienced. This was the first time on the island for 80% of our guests and the staff at East Winds honestly couldn't have made the experience any better! We are so excited to go back for another stay!
First time visitors to EastWinds. We stayed for 12 nights in a Deluxe room, we would agree with all the positives in the other reviews including the staff, who are some of the best we have experienced. No issues with barking dogs and now in our top three Caribbean resorts.
Enjoyable stay but...........
Although we enjoyed our stay at The East Winds, its not a hotel we would return to, although there are lots of guests that do. The main reason is the dogs barking. we were concerned after reading other reviews about this, and quite understand its not the hotels fault, but when you go away for rest and relaxation, this spoilt it for us, you can hear the dogs anywhere in the resort day or night. We had a superior room which was large but was showing signs of wear, it had a very small bathroom not like the photo thats shown on the web site. The food was just OK, I was disappointed with the breakfast, you'll be fine if you like a cooked breakfast, but we never saw any of the home made breads that are listed on the breakfast menu. For lunch and dinner If you like meat and BBQs you'll be OK, if you are a vegetarian the menu is rather limited. All the staff are lovely, its a shame we couldn't see their smiling faces, too many to single out. The service at the pool bar was a bit "hit and miss" a suggestion to the management, have a service phone to the main bar that guests can use to order drinks rather than wait for a member of staff to appear. The grounds are lovely, and you must do the garden tour with Sylvanas, it was so interesting and he has a great passion for his garden. As I said we enjoyed our stay and East Winds must be dong something right because of the amount of return guests, but sad to say we won't be one of them.
Relaxing and Beautiful
Just back from beautiful Eastwinds. We stayed 14 days and it was a fantastic break. Rooms - beautiful and spacious, housekeeping outstanding. Good sized fridge re-stocked every day. Grounds - immaculate. Beach - quite small but beautiful and the sunbeds are very well shaded and never in short supply. Pool - spotless and bigger than it looks on the photos. Ideally located a few yards from the beach and bars. Breakfasts - couldn't be better. Lunches - varied, some bbq's, buffet type service, our favourite meals of the day. Dinners - 4 courses, proper silver service but very relaxed. Brilliant wines, different each night. Water sports - 3 hobie cats available, kayaks, paddle boards and pedlos. Also decent snorkelling. Good tuition available if required, at no extra cost. Excursions - we did the sunset cruise and the day trip on a yacht to the pitons, sulphur springs and waterfall. Both were great, but the day trip was really special. Staff - Eastwinds strongest card. All are very good, some exceptional. It almost seems unfair to mention some and not others but here goes; Joe - at the watersports, Taught me to sail the hobie cat and was just great throughout the 2 weeks. Miriam and Kerwin the two sommeliers/waiters, great fun and very knowledgeable about the wines. Curlin, Septima, Robert, Kirby, Windel, Selma and Sylvie all brilliant bartenders/waiters..... Natasha/Charms - two of the "bosses" very nice and courteous. Jayah and Mikel - brilliant beach/pool bartenders, great banter. There are lots of others, as I say all are very good. Music - some form of live music is usually played most lunchtimes and evenings, the pianists are outstanding. Improvements - so many guests return year after year, Eastwinds aren't doing much wrong! We would; Offer a Caribbean food option with the dinner choices in the evening, local dishes are perhaps not Eastwinds strong point. Provide a bit more "vibe" early evening and after dinner with some background music in the sunset bar, likewise in the pool bar between say 3 - 5pm. Covid protocols - all staff are still wearing masks. personally we would be very happy if they were not and we could see their smiling faces. All bars/restaurants are essentially outside. Likewise remove the perspex screen, between the kitchen staff and guests at breakfast/lunch (the setting is outdoors and we are all vaccinated) it actually makes it difficult to understand the chefs/servers on occasions, given the masks and screen. Likewise remove the (in our opinion) ridiculous rule that guests should wear a mask when entering or moving about what is an outside bar/restaurant, and when approaching the bar/serving counter. Just not necessary. If anyone was that worried about covid, they would not be travelling on a busy flight through busy airports on holiday. We are looking forward to returning perhaps when the jazz festival is on (think it is May time), our taxi driver really sold that to us and it sounds like the whole island is buzzing.......could be ideal for a week in Rodney Bay and a relaxing week in Eastwinds to follow......sounds like the perfect holiday!!
