    We booked this last minute for Christmas with out two daughters and we are so pleased we did , the hotel was amazing . We had two rooms on the second floor and we could see the amazing sunsets. The rooms were clean and extremely spacious and had a lovely balcony. The COVID restrictions were handled very well and we felt completely safe. The food was varied and very god quality. The family particularly enjoyed the steak at the Pavillion restaurant and I enjoyed the daily afternoon teas. The treatments were lovely and it was nice to have a little break from the sun. Special mention to the wonderful nurse who took our temperatures every day, Shannon in the main restaurant , Javid in the Pavillion and our lovely cleaning lady ( rooms 210 and 205 ) We would recommend this hotel and will go back when restrictions are lifted.

    Absolutely first rate from start to finish . I cannot gush enough. I went on my own but have made friends for life ! . The Garden room I had is the most basic but with no single supplement it’s much less expensive and still perfectly nice . The staff here are so incredibly friendly , expert , attentive and kind . The hotel is so well run . The daily included treatments are really first class and the beauty staff are really skilled . The classes and hikes are really well run and varied - I particularly enjoyed the daily hikes , yoga , stretch , pool volleyball , acqua fit and carribean dance on the beach . Their COVID-19 preparations and protocols were immaculately managed so you felt very safe but still normal and the in house nurse spoke to and checked every single guest each morning . The entertainment and sports programme is second to none . Unbelievable . Best holiday I’ve ever had . Thanks so much especially to the cleaning staff who kept the place perfect and to the amazing body guards ( sports and activities leaders ) and to the spa staff and Natasha the best yoga teacher . Can’t wait to get back .

    Not our favourite, but was fun.

    My husband and I aren't the large resort type of people, but where else are you going to get an inclusive 55minute treatment with each day you stay? The gym is fully equipped and there is a lot to do in order to stay active. You do not need to be a gym body to enjoy the place, as there are so many activities you can do outside of the gym, such as water sports. The trainers are amazing and genuinely passionate about what they do. My husband took golf lessons with an ex-pro golf player and also had a body consultation with an ex-pro runner. If you don't want to do activities, you do not have to. The negatives of this place are that you have to work on the hotel's schedule in terms of eating, as food isn't available 24hours (incl. no room service). The fridge has no other refreshments except for tea/coffee and water. We had filled in all our information on the portal prior to arrival, including my dietary requirements, but we had to repeat the form on pen and paper upon arrival. No one checked for our covid PCR test certificates, despite us asking if they want to see it. They asked us to email it over and had not provided an email and were a little too relaxed about it for my liking. Face masks were hardly imposed, therefore much of people staying were walking around mask-less, I didn't feel the safest here. My dietary requirements were filled in prior to and upon check-in (Gluten free) and we were still given wheat biscuits daily with our tea and none of the staff at the resort were informed of my requirements, and I still had to repeat myself at TAO, in which we made a reservation for. The resort is very Clicky, if you don't play a specific sport or take part in an activity, the people who did, will not talk to you. It felt like a first day at school. Only on our 5th and last day did we have people talk to us, and that, only if we spoke first. Their breakfast was amazing and had a great spread for all dietry requirements. But if you're coming here and expecting a west-indian experience, you will not get that here, unless you're at the resort on their 1 day a week west-indian night. I felt like I was in Spain with a bunch of British people rather than the Carribean.

    This place is not for everyone. You need to be the type that exercises daily, enjoys massages & spa treatments daily. Its a great place for this!!! Staff is super friendly, helpful and engaging. Had a grumpy staff member at the front desk when we arrived but I got over it. Food for all inclusive is amazing, there are some up charges at Tao, their best place but all fairly priced. Wine....yeah one of my major complaints. All inclusive wine is way subpar for the price your paying a night. There is an additional wine list for an additional charge that is not too pricey. But many of the selections are old and should not even be sold, had a Pouilly Fuisse from 2014...it was undrinkable. They really need to get rid of some of their older wines. Did some diving and the staff was fantastic...Melissa was such a joy! Beach is very nice with great service. Rooms are small and need some updating. The hotel was very good about covid safety. Gave 4 stars only because of price and rooms, otherwise this is a top notch vacation.

    My husband and I and our 2 adult daughters spent Thanksgiving at the resort and my husband and I stayed through the first week in December. We all agreed the experience was fantastic! We have traveled domestically during the Covid outbreak, but we had some trepidation about traveling overseas. We felt very safe at The Body Holiday. The resort was meticulous about following protocols designed to keep the guests and the staff safe. The staff is amazing. Without exception, they were courteous, engaging and provided excellent service. There were not many guests during our stay, but the resort made sure that our experience was not diminished. It truly felt like a private paradise. They offered a full array of fitness classes and other activities, the beach was lovely and the beach service attentive. The food was varied, fresh and delicious. The spa was wonderful and we enjoyed all of the included services and several additional services as well. Our fellow guests, mostly from the UK, were unpretentious, inclusive and really just lovely. All and all an amazing vacation during difficult times. Honestly, were it not for our dog and our aging parents back home, we'd still be there. Thank you for a wonderful respite!! We hope to come back soon
