Curtain Bluff, Fun for the whole family
August 12, 2011
I just visited Antigua July 23-27, 2011. We arrived during Carnival on Antigua which made the arrival process a little more crowded than usual and it took a while to get through customs & immigration and get our luggage. Once we made it out of the airport, we were whisked off by private SUV transfer about 40 minutes from Curtain Bluff Resort.
Curtain Bluff is a beautiful all inclusive resort that sits by itself on a bluff with ocean on both sides boasting 2 separate beaches- One is great for body surfing the waves which roll into the shore, the other is great for snorkeling, water sports and children. Every accommodation has a stunning view of the ocean. There are only 72 Rooms and Suites. My Junior Suite (#44) had a King Bed and living room area, fully air conditioned with ceiling fans in the vaulted ceiling above the bed and sitting area with a terrace that literally stepped into the sand. You could hear the ocean crashing onto the beach about 40 steps from the patio. The bathroom has double vanity, with a walk in shower, large tub and separate water closet. They have plenty of connecting rooms and suites for any family size from 1 Bedroom to 4 Bedroom. One of the beauties of staying here is there are no phones or TV’s in the rooms. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the property. They will stock your fridge with certain drinks if you let them know your preferences. They also offer laundry service for a fee.
The great thing about this resort is there are tons of things to do while you’re there. About 10 minutes from the resort there is a zip line course. On property they have a championship tennis center, a fully equipped water sports center offering scuba, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing, Hobie Cats and kayaks, a squash court and fitness center. They also have daily snorkeling trips to Cades Reef.
We took an Aquatics class in the pool which sits right off the tranquil beach. The large freeform pool is set back in the jungle.
The spa was a little slice of heaven. As you’re getting your spa treatment, you can hear the waves crashing below against the rocks. This was one of the best massages I have ever had!!!
There is one open air restaurant with a menu that revolves nightly, so during a 7 night stay you won’t have the same entrée at dinner. The beach restaurant is great for light fares during the daytime while you’re at the beach.
I would recommend this resort for anyone looking for a relaxed, laid back Caribbean destination where you can stay as busy as you want or just spend the week vegging on the beach! There were couples, families and single travelers.
We enjoyed the live music both nights we were there. Depending on the crowd at the resort, you could even have dancing.
The owner Chelle and the General Manager Rob are always present and very personable.
Curtain Bluff will be closed from July 30- October 28th 2011.
