Our Opinion

Last Visited By Karen, Travel Specialist

Arriving at East Winds, my first thought was how pretty the gardens were, with lovely cottages dotted about leading down towards the pool and beach.  I particularly liked the Deluxe Cottages with their lovely verandah - a really nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

I thought the self service swim up bar at the pool was a great idea, and the lovely loungers on the surrounding terrace looked like a very comfortable place to relax.  The open air spa and yoga pavilion set in the gardens added to the peaceful feel of the resort.

The restaurant and bar area are a lovely setting for a pre-dinner drink - as Champagne is included it would be a fantastic place to end a relaxing day!  Dinner was particularly enjoyable with a great atmosphere, enhanced by the accompanying pianist who took requests and really added to the ambience.

I really loved the feel of East Winds, with great friendly staff and such a pretty setting I thought it was the perfect resort for a relaxing, special break.
