Where to start.... this was our last stop of our honeymoon and if it was the first we would have probably stayed for another 2 nights. From being Welcomed by the owners to the day we checked out was just amazing. Being in the hospitality industry myself I could not fault anything. Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped....

What can I say, we had an amazing stay, all the staff are amazing and friendly, the breakfasts are to die for and the local knowledge is second to none. We will be back again next year and I have booked for my parents to visit in November of this year.

However as more guests arrived we felt were rushed through the check-in procedure and weren't... More

Thanks for your lovely review and time taken. My staff are deserving of so much praise. We certainly hope you do COME BACK to our lovely village and Sandals GH. The outdoor shower options are wonderful...but yes, winter showering outdoors could be more challenging! Wish we could have summer all year round! More
