One of the Best in the Caribbean

Posted Nov 30, 2015 on Orbitz
One of the biggest draws to this property is there are no children. It is couples only. Therefore, peace and calm surround you. Of course, you will have to put up with the screaming children on the plane ride to and from the island unless you fly private. Also, for boat charters, this is a convenient location. For both of these reasons, this resort beats Jumby Bay. Jumby Bay actually tries to attract families with childrens' programs and, boats won't go all the way to Jumby Bay for charters because its just too far. We never expect the worlds best service in the Caribbean. Let's face it, it's the Caribbean, not Europe. But, we were surprised at this resort at the real desire to please, which we seldom encounter in the Caribbean. Of course, there were minor incidents like bringing items at meals that were not ordered instead of ordered items, then getting 3 different stories about why. Room bars are restocked daily with everything you request: you fill out a request sheet every morning at breakfast asking for liquors, juices, etc to be put into your fridge that day. Facilities were beautiful. The beach and restaurant were never crowded, even at full resort capacity. There were always available beach beds and umbrellas: no mad rush at 7am to get a place on the beach like at many of the rat race resorts. If you want privacy get a hillside bungalow.

Wonderful Stay!

Posted Jan 20, 2015 on Orbitz
We loved our visit to Hermitage Bay. The hotel is perfect for couples looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway. The hotel's small size ensures that you can truly relax in a beautiful and lush setting. Unlike larger resorts, you don't have to fight for lounge chairs or prime reservations for dinner. Everything is very relaxd, and the staff is incredibly attentive making sure that you have the perfect, stress-free stay. The accomodations are comfortable and quite spacious. Having a beachfront villa enables you to be just a stones throw from the water. The hillside villas are slightly further from the water but have spectacular views with plunge pools that are perfect for the afternoon sun. They are all done in gorgeous dark wood with a very natural feel to them. The food at the hotel was quite good for the Carribbean and certainly plentiful. There were lots of interesting options at all meals. The only downside of the hotel is that the beach has a lot of shells on it. The water is gorgeous (calm and warm), but you don't have the soft sand that you find at some other resorts. Otherwise, it's a beautiful and quiet private beach that is perfect for relaxing, paddle boaridng, or swimming.

Great Honeymoon Spot

Absolutely beautiful hotel! Service was impeccable and the villas were very clean. Food is excellent as well but the evenings are very quiet at this hotel. Opt for the hillside villa for the plunge pool and stunning views! Only real complaint was getting used to the loud birds that would start just before sunrise...you're definitely immersed in nature here!

Beautiful location, excellent staff, good food and drinks, just a great way to relax and enjoy life. There really isn't much more to do here than relax, but maybe that's not a bad thing

great hotel for a romantic getaway

Posted Mar 26, 2013
Pros: room views and splash pool
Cons: Beaches were great, but if I have to be picky, I've seen nicer/smoother sand
Location: A++ all around! Great service (for the islands), great rooms/views, good beaches, and great food.
We've stayed at some more expensive resorts in the Caribbean like Caneel Bay and Little Dix Bay, but none matched the service or room/view for Hermitage Bay. We paid extra for a room high up on the hill and it was worth every penny. The walk isn't quick, but you need to burn the calories from all of the great food and drink somehow!

Simply the best

Posted Dec 17, 2012
Pros: the wonderful staff, excellent food, and gorgeous settings and accommodations.
My husband and I just returned from 5 days at Hermitage Bay. We have taken a number of beach vacations over the years, and this was, quite simply, the best ever. Best food, accommodations, staff, setting. Our only regret was that high winds made the snorkeling less than ideal (also, apparently, there are fewer fish around in December.) But we could not recommend this resort more highly.
