Friendly with great views

lynlitvack (Thornhill, Canada) on Jan 27, 2023

Know what you are getting then you won’t be disappointed. No lifts so upper floors are 5 flights but they bring your bags. Clean staff are great shout out to Brendalee. Rooms are serviced daily and if we did not get to clean dishes they did. We had a Jr. Suite and made breakfast and lunch, enjoyed eating and playing cards on balcony with great breezes. Staff from wonderful girls at front desk to grounds keepers say hello with a smile at every request and passing by. Bed was very hard and at a request they put a topper on it. Beach clean great for long walks. Ocean can be rough but in front of Sandals where rock break wall is the ocean area is calmer. Pools cleaned and good choices as one is on far side of property and ok for swimming lengths. Bar seems very popular as I don’t drink that’s all I can say. Restaurant is ok service is very good and when we arrived it was their Thai night and Rocksie helped us choose. Rooms are fresh simple but all you need with the Jr S giving you coffee maker hot plate kettle dishes fridge larger than a bar fridge. Sink cutting board, pots pans all perfect for simple meals.

January vacation

Northsoutheastwest99 on Jan 25, 2023

Had a wonderful vacation at the Bougainvillea. Rooms are very clean and housekeeping comes in daily to change towels and make the bed. Beach is all sand with no rocks. Water can be a little rough but if you walk a very short distance to the reef it is calmer for swimming. Special shout out to the reservations team as my request for a ground floor room due to medical issues was honored. We also arrived very early in the morning and Miranda at the front desk was very accommodating. Our room was even ready before the 4 pm check-in time.

Lovely place, hard to think of detractions

Philip S (Toronto, Canada) on Jan 25, 2023

Father and adult daughter, for a short-ish winter getaway (from Toronto)... Lovely, comfortable and relaxing place. Our suite was a bit drab, but no bother as one doesn't spend much time in the rooms anyway. The grounds are very pretty and easy to navigate. I appreciated how the pools are divided into parts depending on if you have young children, are using the pool bar, etc. A few more loungers in the pool area would be preferable. If you're a beach person it is literally steps away. The beach had plenty of loungers and was clean; however, you can't walk too far without encroaching on other properties' beachfronts. There aren't really any places to eat or shops readily accessible by foot... And this is my one complaint of Bougainvillea: only one restaurant. The restaurant was lovely with great food, but it gets tiresome for every meal. I am used to staying at places where there are at least a couple of options. A coffee bar for the morning, and snack bar for afternoons (i.e. just a burger, maybe an ice-cream), would have made the days perfect. The staff are very friendly, and there was even a resort cat! We got great weather, so absolutely no complaints there. I would recommend the "Bougie" for a relaxing getaway for adults, for sure... If you're taking older kids, they may get "bored" after a couple of days, as there are no activities to speak of. I would definitely return, depending on who I was travelling with and the occasion.

6 stars if possible!!

Christie T (Halifax, Canada) on Jan 22, 2023

If I could give this place 6 starts I would! We spent 10 glorious days here over Christmas 2022. We were a family of 8 occupying 3 rooms. The resort is absolutely breathtaking, the food was amazing, and the staff were a delight. We have had many family vacations over the years, but this by far was our favourite. I would return today if I could! Thank you Bougainvillia for making our Christmas so memorable….we will be back!!

Wonderful Winter Vacstion

Frank P (Long Island, New York) on Jan 15, 2023

This is true resort. It has everything you want and is in a great location. The staff is amazing. The restaurant on the property was on of our favorite. Don’t miss the Saturday Thai dinner or the Oistin fish bake on Friday.
