Not sure about 5 star
Unique location accessible only by water taxi so getting charged an extra $200 for the privilege of getting to and from the hotel mildly amusing or if you’re remotely budget constrained a bit of a cheek. However service at the bight cafe venue was truly dreadful for a purportedly 5 star hotel. Being told to get your own sauce from the bottle rack wasn’t great (waitress could just as easily have brought it over rather than pointing to their location in a pretty aggressive manner) but the ‘manager’ of the day (English and red headed) seemed so much more interested in serving 2 young ladies their second bottle of champagne than a couple of hotel residents it felt plain rude. Check out was a farce with the duty manager attempting to charge for dinner and breakfast meals when we had booked half board And then telling us we didn’t understand before finally (bit of an argument ensued) taking the additional charges off the bill. If you do go there make sure the hotel includes dinner bed and breakfast (you are a captive audience so may as well)

We had the most wonderful 3 days away in paradise - the staff were fantastic and friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The food is exceptional with a highly skilled team of chefs who were happy to catering to individual dietary requirements. And thanks to Natalie and Elaine for their help to make our special day so wonderful too!
