Quiet, tropical feeling resort. Food in the restaurant was first class. Beautiful views. Friendly, relaxed staff. Big bedroom. Only issue was other guests walking on the deck past our bedroom window , had to keep shades down which detracts from enjoying the view.

OK Family Stay
We stayed at Carrington in one of the 3 bed villa's. The house itself was spacious and clean but a little tired around the edges. The AC was great ( needed as temp near 30 outside ) and views wonderful. Very self contained and as such feels quite removed from the facilities of hotel, which require's a drive to get to. We were there when very quiet so not much atmosphere and the restaurant at vineyard told us that food was unavailable 2 hrs before closing time as they had had a slow day and where closing early. We enjoyed our time there, pool is great, and less than 10 min drive to awesome beaches makes up for some of negatives.
