This is an amazing property for those who are looking for tranquility. It's the opposite of the other big resort hotels. Only 30 rooms at this boutique hotel. Attentive and friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are simply wonderful. The pool is very large and lots of lounge chairs. The hotel's dinner restaurant, Shima is an excellent option. Don't miss the shuttle to the private beach club. It is a small slice of heaven. Gym, spa, and fitness studio on site.

Delightful Retreat
A pure delight. Rare that my husband and I return to a place, as we are adventurous spirits, BUT—-Island House is magnetic.

Had an amazing time. Property was beautiful. The private beach at club made the weird check in everytime arriving to beach worth it. Staff were ver attentive and helpful. Maybe too enthusiastic with trying to enter room while having a matinee! The credits hadn't rolled yet and even when said no staff tried entering so we took to making sure door was bolted.

The best hotel experience I have ever had in my life! From the moment we arrived the staff were so friendly and competent, they accommodated all of our requests and often exceeded expectations quite often. I went to celebrate my partners 30th birthday (and secretly propose to her) and the staff excellently helped me curate a wonderful experience. I can't wait to come back again!

8/10 Very good

Limited food options and timing. Drinks being served until 1am with food ending at 10pm is a big miss for the hotel. Also, please offer local fare as well.
