South Point’s accommodations are comprised of 23 condo-style waterfront suites that overlook the Caribbean Sea and Falmouth Harbour marina. Housed in five individual 2- and 3-storey buildings along the coast, each of the 23 suites offers immediate access to the pool, jetty, and small private beach. Resort facilities are reserved for guests only, creating a peaceful, secluded oasis in the midst of Antigua’s most popular destination – outside of the capital, St. John’s – English Harbour.

Nothing to show.
A decent sized room with separate seating area leading onto a veranda overlooking the marina but the lighting is extremely poor with insufficient low wattage ceiling lights and grey walls, washed grey ceiling and grey covers to seats. Hopeless for shaving or putting on make-up. They provided us with an additional standard lamp but it made little difference. They provide tea & coffee but only enough milk for the first day after which you have to buy your own at an extremely high price so best to go to nearby supermarket. They provide 2 x 350ml bottles of water daily but if you open additional bottled water in the fridge they charge an exorbitant US$6 (incl. taxes & service) for a 250ml bottle! We had surplus EC$ at the end but they insisted on converting to US$ at a rate of 2.7 when the fixed rate is 2.6. Overall we were disappointed.
We had a quick one night stay at South Point. We were scheduled to stay in a 2 bedroom suite which was unavailable, but the switch to two adjoining one bedroom suites was handled seamlessly. The hotel’s willingness to pick up a cake at a local bakery and have it in our room when we checked in was much appreciated. Although the room was not available when we arrived several hours early, we were greeted warmly with a delicious welcome drink and offered bag storage, immediate use of the pool, and local lunch recommendations. The location is gorgeous on English Harbour, with views of the boats on the water and hillside beyond. The staff was responsive, and more importantly warm. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for use, and a delicious breakfast is included in the room price. From our multiple communications before arrival to everything about the stay itself, the entire experience was fantastic.
Beautifully appointed rooms, extremely friendly staff with the perfect mix of being attentive but relaxed. Has a lovely pool and little beach area with paddle boards and kayaks so you can explore the harbour and float amongst the mega yachts that are right outside the property. Restaurant and bar are open to public but the private areas for residents are strictly enforced, which is to be commended! Excellent on site restaurant and don’t miss a cocktail in the lobby bar looking at the boats you can’t afford. Great location for the livelier nights in the harbour but private enough to avoid the party if you choose. I would certainly return , only point that could be improved would be a more proactive drink service around the pool as the phone they give you is not visible in the sun, a minor gripe as overall it’s an excellent choice. Mosquitoes were quite active as it was rather stormy and lots of rain in the days before we arrived. They do provide off spray but I would suggest some citronella candles on the balcony would be a welcome addition.
