What a beautiful spot in Antigua! The resort was small but packed a big punch with character. The staff was amazing and so friendly. The owner, Chelle, was constantly chatting with all the guests making sure they were happy. The food was marvelous and this is an all-inclusive. Rooms walked right out to the beach. Loved it. Great activities included...

We just got back from a week at Curtain Bluff and highly recommend it for families or couples looking for a laid-back but luxurious island resort. It's hard to come up with any useful comment that others haven't posted already so in confirmation of things others have said before, I'll confirm that the resort is truly exceptionally. The food is...

Our experience at Curtain Bluff had to be one of the best vacations ever taken. Accommodations, food, drinks, amenities, services all top of the line. We had two vacations at Curtain Bluff. Our first visit the resort didn't have a pool. Upon our return the resort installed a pool that we enjoyed very much.

The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. The staff was friendly and always available to meet any of your needs whether you wanted to go diving, water skiing, tennis... or any one of the many activities offered. The food was great and the guests my wife and met there were wonderful. I can't wait to return!

I was very impressed with this resort. Relaxing, great tennis courts, took a very memorable trip out to the reef! The rooms are spacious, comfy and clean! Food was incredible and we met the nicest people while staying here.

Our location between two beaches and the incredible Cades Reef at our door step, a quick 5 minute boat ride makes CB it a water lovers paradise. With so much included from water skiing, to snorkel and dive trips to Cades Reef, to paddle boards, Hobi cats, water bikes, kayaks and the list goes on.

It has been almost ten years since we stayed at Curtain Bluff....after many years of wonderful Spring Breaks with our children. We returned this Spring with a sense of nostalgia and not a little anxiety. Surprise...you really can go back! This small, intimate hotel remains luxurious, the rooms updated, the surroundings immaculate, the food outstanding. The additions made over the...

So glad you returned to CB, after a 10 year hiatus. We are pleased you enjoyed our many upgrades, with a major renovation just around the corner to start in 2 weeks time. When you return you will see an updated reception area, Tamarind Restaurant, Library and Sugar Mill bar, all lighter and brighter from top to bottom. We say...

Let me first say that a week vacation with the family at Curtain Bluff was fun, very relaxing, and we built lasting family memories.

Thank you for your very in depth review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your first visit to CB and rated us 5 stars overall.

We just came back from Easter vacation at Curtain Bluff. We have been to many resorts in the Caribbean, not cheap at all (Beaches, Turks and Caicos or Paradissus Palma Real in Punta Cana as an example) and all I can say, this one is special. It may not be the fanciest, the most modern, the most luxury one, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Flanked by water on both sides, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky promontory (bluff) that juts into the sea between two beautiful beaches. One is calm, ideal for swimming and watersports; the other beach is washed by ocean surf. 72 Rooms and suites, all with staggering seascape views, are spread out along the Surf Beach and up the bluff. There are two restaurants: the open-walled Tamarind Tree serving breakfasts and candle-lit dinners, and the Beach Cafe & Bar, where barefoot-casual lunches are enjoyed one step from the sand and a few feet from the water's edge.The resort's exceptional facilities include a championship tennis center, a fully equipped watersports center (scuba, Windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing, Hobie Cats and kayaks), a squash court and fitness center. When it's time to relax, there's our tranquil spa overlooking the sea, a beachside swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swaying in the shade of coconut palms.With the exception of a few above-and-beyond luxuries (Cuban cigars, vintage wines, spa treatments), everything is included in the room rate, making it one of the best values in the Caribbean. ... more   less
