I had a great experience with Isle Blue. They stayed in contact after booking and made sure to finalize everything with me a few days before my trip. The villa was AMAZING and I was pleased with all services. I'll definitely be using Isle Blue again!
My best friend and I had a girls getaway and we stayed in the 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath O2 villa (called Stingray 02 on the site that I booked it -- Isleblue.co). I thought the pictures on the website were good...we were BLOWN AWAY by the villa in person. We both remarked that we couldn't believe we had the luck to stay there. You absolutely cannot beat the views. You can see the gorgeous blue water from pretty much every door and window. To be able to sit outside and just stare at the ocean...WOW. Every morning there was such a gift. Trust me, you want to stay here at least once when visiting Antigua. It's worth every dime. Now, on to the details (or at least the things I'd want to read about in a review lol): The staff - Ahhhhhhhhhhh, Bancroft! We miss him already! He took such good care of us and really made two single ladies feel safe and secure. Tamarind Hills has a gem in him and I hope they know it! Darren was our driver for most of the trip and he was great! He got us everywhere we needed to go safely and he was super nice and so sweet. We didn't utilize housekeeping (we were only there for 5 days and we just cleaned up after ourselves) but it is offered as part of the deal. Internet - It worked better than expected throughout the villa, inside and out. I had the strongest signal downstairs in the living/kitchen area but I was able to stream (with few interruptions) YouTube videos in the master bedroom, outside by the pool, and in the master bathroom. I have AT&T and an iPhone 8/iPad Air 2. I was able to make AT&T Wifi calls and send/receive text messages with no issues. Again, the strongest connection for me was in downstairs in the living/kitchen area. All TVs in the home are Smart TVs and they all worked well. There are ample power plugs throughout the villa, inside and out. We were never left saying "I wish there was a plug here". We did not need plug converters coming from the U.S. Everything plugged in normally. Kitchen - There are a ton of plates, bowls, spoons, pots, pans, etc. If you plan to do full on cooking you may be missing measuring items and things like that. We did some light cooking and had everything we needed. There is a coffeemaker, a toaster, a juicer, and a blender. The stove, oven, microwave, and fridge all worked well. The grocery store is literally a five minute drive away and was similar to what we are used to in the States. They had a few things for us in the fridge but if you want real food (even down to spices), you'll definitely need to visit the store. I read about ant problems in other villas but we didn't have that issue. We did have a fruit fly/gnat situation though when we left some dirty dishes in the sink overnight. Water pressure - I am used to being beat down by the water in my shower at home so it was different in the villa BUT it was not bad at all. Amenities - There is a grill (we didn't use), a plunge pool (used a lot - not heated), a boardwalk (used), an outdoor shower (used - worked well), and a washer/dryer (didn't use - we would have but there was no detergent). Air conditioning - I always worry about sufficient A/C when traveling abroad because I am used to it being ice cold in S. Florida. This was NOT a problem in this villa. Whooooo man, it gets and stays cold in there. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and that makes it even colder while sleeping. I have zero complaints about the A/C. It was perfect! The beds - They were definitely on the firm side and though I prefer softer beds I slept well. The pillows were squishy and nice. Other stuff - The villa is right between Darkwood Beach and Ffryes Beach. Both are within walking distance. Darkwood was nice, clean, quiet and the water was beautiful. There is a water park situation thing there that I saw lots of people utilizing. We ate at the beach's bar and grill and it was ok. Not terrible but nothing to write home about. We did eat at Sheer Rocks as well and this is place you need to visit while on the island. The food is AMAZING. While in St. John, we ate at Hemingway's and the food there was pretty good too. I'm already thinking about the next time I'm going to visit Antigua just to stay in this villa again. I don't see myself every staying anywhere else. We loved it!
