It’s the height of hospitality — where you feel like part of the family. This is true at most great hotels, but even more so at the best family-managed properties in the Caribbean. Indeed, the Caribbean stands out in the sheer number of high-quality, family owned and family-run hotels.  A passion for the Caribbean always plays a large part in getting them here. And a commitment to running a great business and treating guests, employees and neighbours like their own kin is the secret of their success and longevity. Family-run means the family doesn’t just own the property — it means you see the family active in the property during your stay.

This Caribbean institution run by the Garzaroli family reaches the zenith of hospitality. A guest here receives some of the finest service anywhere in the region. And it’s been that way for decades.
