Relaxing times.
Wonderful location! Quiet and out of the bustle of other beaches. This secluded hotel is a simple oasis from the other, more touristy, beaches. Welcoming and accommodating staff, and beautiful sunsets!

The hotel is situated in a beautiful area with tonnes of wildlife, a great beach and pool. Breakfast was included and the food provided was really good. I was really looking forward to the Yoga classes offered Monday to Friday, unfortunately I only got to attend one class due to the instructor having an emergency. It was unfortunate that there was no replacement instructors, as this was a key reason I booked this hotel. I still hope to return to Sugar Beach in the future.

Very Good 8.0
The beach and infinity pool were amazing. The service was good. The restaurant food was inconsistent. The room was nice but had a lot of very large ants. The cable TV did not work but they had free DVDs at the front desk. The beachfront yoga was only 15 minutes even though it was supposed to be an hour. Maybe because i was the only person there. The staff kindly provided us with a take-away breakfast since we had an early flight.

Gerald, us2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
We loved the privacy and seclusion of the property. The front desk and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant menu was fine for about 2 nights, but if one stayed longer, it was limited. Some of the lounge chairs were looking a bit worn. We would have liked the pool to be accessible for evening swimming. The pool area was completely dark by 7 pm. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sugar Beach Hotel.
