  • We were taken here as part of a private tour of the island. Tip from me would be to go early in the morning (as we did) and avoid the crowds. Spectacular views - an incredible island and beautiful...

  • Another beautiful spot in Antigua. Top of the mountain, great music 🎶 and cold drinks. Its $10 US admission fee per person. Then you can enjoy the stunning views of the English harbor and Nelson stockyards, while you have some delicious BBQ'd jerked chicken or burgers, hot dogs or ribs. We tried the chicken 🐓🍗 and ribs and it was fantastic. Definitely worth the short drive.
  • The manager was beyond rude. I made a booking weeks in advance and was told by the agent to call again a day or two in advance to confirm that the guest are still coming. We'll when I did, they couldn't find my booking. The manager who although seemed like she was trying to help was super aggressive from the start. She offered no apology for the lost booking and basically blamed me for not remembering the exact date I called and not remembering the name of the booking agent. She really needs training in costumer service. She was clearly stressed out or something but she kept rambling on and on and not really addressing my issue. Then when I tried to interrupt her to refocus her she accused me of trying to quarrel with her. To be honest this was the worst booking experience I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Anyway the end result of being verbally accosted by management, was her promising promising do their best to accommodate the party of 2 and will put them on the wait list. When the party showed up they said they never heard of them. Not shocked at all.
