Probably the best family holiday in the world!

Sutton, United Kingdom

Our first visit to East Winds was in April after making our decision on reading reviews fromTripadvisor. We were blown away by the quality of everything that East Winds delivers. The quality of the staff is fantastic. Friendly, efficient but with a professional approach. The food was great and the wines of very high standard. A mimosa was even served at breakfast if requested! I would not claim to be a world traveller, but regularly take a couple of breaks a year to recharge the batteries! I could quite easily say that this is the best combination that we have ever found on a holiday. Every single member of staff did go that extra mile and take real ownership. The location is wonderful. The beach, pool, restaurant and bars are stunning. The accommodation is scrumptiously clean and the beautiful gardens are cared for lovingly. Food is well cooked, well presented which reflects the care and quality with flexibility to accommodate what suits. A Sommelier is at hand to give well balanced advice on wines. The wines that we tasted we thoroughly enjoyed! The beach bar was particularly good for pre/after dinner drinks which on some nights had a fantastic singer! The trips which were organised by the hotel were brilliant and were chaperoned by either the Head of “Good Vibes “ or someone from the water sport team. We were so impressed with the whole set up that we took the family(12 in total) back in August. The family just loved it. Ages ranging from 11yr to ##!. They were so impressed! There are so many things to mention. Lunchtime with the talented Steel Band, Managers Champagne Reception. We also thought that it was exceptionally good to see the Managing Partner walking the grounds/beach and engaging with her guests. The whole team ethos was about delivering the quality and service. Like everything it is subjective based on what you are looking for. We found the whole experience second to none and the dedication of the team make all the difference, as they were the best! We will be back!

Paradise Found!

Near Whitstable, Kent

What can I possibly say that hasn't already been covered in recent glowing reports? This was our first time at East Winds (and indeed in the Caribbean) for our family of four with two teenagers. We had very high expectations, both from the brochure (Virgin) and Trip Advisor; but these expectations were exceeded! East Winds is a wonderfully idyllic paradise! From the moment we arrived when we were shown around the public areas, we realised just how lovely it is! We stayed in the deluxe cottages, which were just as depicted in the website photos. There was always a good supply of hot water for post-swimming showers, using the courtesy Molton Brown products. Mosquito repellent was available in the rooms, although we also used our own. The restaurant was beautifully located within the beach area. Breakfast was a generous buffet, including breads, muffins, pastries, porridge, fruit, yogurt, cereals, hot options and freshly cooked dishes from Paula; my favourite was the banana pancakes! Lunch was a hot and cold buffet, or a BBQ on some days. An additional light fare menu including chips was available, but we never needed to sample this. Dinner was more formal with a choice of three dishes for each course, comprising of a meat dish, fish and vegetable option. Every meal we ate was beautifully presented and tasty. We particularly enjoyed trying different varieties of fish that we had not come across before. The two beach areas were pretty and peaceful. A recent TA review queried the beach bar service, but we can definitely confirm that the ever-cheerful Windell and Haig, to name just two, served our choice of drinks right to our sunbed without us lifting a finger!! We had fun with the snorkelling and kayaks, and Jo and Wesley were clearly experienced with the Hobie catamarans. It's possible to walk around the bay along the shoreline towards the noisier and more commercial resort nearby. Other reviews have mentioned the great pool and self-service bar, with endless towels. The Sunset Bar, unsurprisingly named as it has the perfect view of every sunset, was a lovely place to chat with fellow guests or just to relax and read, and pass the time until the gorgeous dinner. The Bamboo Lounge was also a lovely communal place for the cocktail and champagne evenings. I have to mention the wonderful staff though, as they really add to the homely and welcoming atmosphere. Every staff member, from management (Judith, Charms, Merle) to the gardeners, tending to the lovely shrubs and flowers, were cheerful and wished us a good day. Theresa gave us a lovely massage in the tranquil spa, and the early morning yoga and pilates classes set me up for the day ahead. Simeon was the perfect guide on the nature walk, sunset cruise and all-day boat trip, arranged through him at the Good Vibes kiosk. The restaurant staff were an absolute joy each day, with too many to mention individually, although I must say that we witnessed Titus going "above and beyond" to take care of a lady who required some assistance. We are very grateful to Miriam who went out of her way to help our daughter, and Elie who ensured that I did not forget my coconut!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the little part of paradise that is East Winds and we will definitely return. We now understand why so many people return year on year. Thank you, all at East Winds! You truly gave us a holiday to remember!
