The Verandah Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We have just returned from The Verandah, and can't recommend it enough. Reallly happy, helpful stafff, lovely beaches, one with good water sports, and excellent variety of trips that can be organised quickly at customer services ( Stingray city was great, Sunday night at Shirley Heights good fun, and Eli Ecco tour was not to be missed).The evening entertainment was not really up to much, and my only negative would be that there was not another bar open in the evening if you wanted to avoid this. However, we just ate later, as it didn't start till 9 and finished at 11.Snorkelling was very easy, and Long beach next door was within walking distance, and the Organised trips were plentiful. As I said, the one we did on the Ecco tour was excellent, when we saw turtles and Rays.Staff were great. Neville in the restaurant, and the very helpful Toy. The guys on the beach were really good with helping people with Sailing and boarding.in fact everyone went out of their way to make it a great stay.We will definatly be going back,, and taking friends with us.
Well it's not posh but it is a very nice laid back hotel. Rooms v spacious and clean. Food is fine but book well in advance for anything other than Buffet restaurant. Like to walk to Devils bridge everyday. Beach good especially like beach bar for lunch. Second visit so that says it all !
Booked this over a year in advance so we had expectations! Meeting up with lifelong friends to celebrate a special birthday.Overall really positive. Pluses - clean, spacious rooms. Good food in all restaurants although we didn't bother with Nicole's. Kids had a great time in the main pool and using the free water sports. Staff mainly friendly but I noticed many Americans tipping which seemed to elicit more favourable responses in some of the bars.Minuses - actually only one. We had a big group (16) and booking the restaurants was a right faff as you can only book 48 hrs in advance and the earlier slots go quickly. Minor inconvenience.I'd like to say we explored the island but to be honest we were so chilled out coming from chilly UK we just enjoyed the sunshine and cocktails.Would recommend to anyone who wants a stress free beach holiday.
On arrival, cold towels and rum punch. The resort isn't full, so an automatic upgrade. Lift straight to my villa door by buggy.The buffet dinner was excellent and is not best described by "buffet", more awesome spread.The rooms are large, clean and really well equipped.The grounds are impeccably kept, as are the beaches and pool surrounds.There was some vegetation clearance near the smaller beach, but this was not intrusive.The main beach is lovely, good size, slopes gently, and spotless.All food is fresh and cooked to order.Drinks are NOT served in cheap plastic floppy cups, but in glass in the restaurants, with a tuff-glass alternative for the beach.The staff couldn't do enough.I preferred the fact you were away from St Johns etc, it kept it really peaceful.We will be going back.
My huzzy and I went for our valentine's. While the service was great during the day I must say that coming to the end was not very pleasing. Whilst at the beach bar I overheard a dispute amongst the staff where the food server refused to take a drink order back to the guestShortly after the guests were blatantly being encourage by the food server to report the bar staff to management. What sort of customer satisfaction is this?Where is the unity amongst the staffI must therefore say I was very saddened to see this. And shouldn't the guest be free to make their own choices and not be influenced by another member of staff? I was very displeased sitting there watching that happening. All in all the experience was rather lovely and we do look forward to spending an overnight next time.
