Nine rooms are on the beach level, with spacious terraces that lead straight out on to the sand. Spread out on the floor above, nine more have verandahs looking out over the sand and sea to the distant headland. All are decorated in a colorful West-Indian style, with white woods and sea-grass furniture, accented by rich blues that echo the color of the sea.

This is an easy vacation destination, all inclusive and most amenities and food were excellent. It’s ethos is defined by the presence of the owner (ate dinner each day on property) and the significant number of return guests fostering a nice sense of community with staff and first time guests.

It’s hard to even begin to describe how wonderful this resort is! From the moment we arrived, we were taken care of, from the upgraded room...beautiful suite overlooking the ocean with waves constantly crashing, to the delicious food served by incredibly courteous and friendly staff. They seemed to think of everything! We sailed Hobi Cats, used their stand-up paddle boards, played tennis, took yoga class and water aerobics class. Of course, we allowed plenty of time to laze at the beach and were brought cold towels and fresh fruit as well as drinks whenever we wanted. Although the resort was crowded, we never felt rushed or neglected. The crowd was a bit older, not many young families with kids, more older families with teenagers or young adults. We made lots of friends at the bar for cocktail hour. A very friendly atmosphere where people have been coming for years, but if you are a newby they won’t hold it against you! Highly recommend...we will be back!

This is where you want to stay out of the fray but be pampered every step of the way. 72 rooms, beautiful beaches on both sides of resort. Never feels like too many people anywhere! Unlimited water activities, spa, tennis. Dining is exceptional for an all inclusive. Special wine tasting once a week. Th emix of people is mostly American, British and some french and most were repeat visitors. One guest had been 45 times throughout his life and some only 15 so I guess this tell you Curtain Bluff hits all the right note without all the stuffiness! Worth a trip! Will return!

Curtain Bluff Resort Review

By: Don


Reviewed on: 07 May 2018

Perhaps the best Caribbean resort we ever visited. The staff is made up of all local employees who have worked at the resort for anywhere between one and 30 years (most at the higher end) and couldn’t possibly do more for the guests. The food is wonderful with daily changing menus with a wide variety of offerings. The owner roams the dining rooms at each meal and interacts with the guests to ensure that all is well. The included activities are numerous (scuba, snorkeling, water skiing, paddle boards and others). This is definitely a “don’t miss” experience and you definitely will not be disappointed.
