TERMINATION OF FREE AIRPORT TRANSFER SERVICE

Dear Friends, we have always tried our best to offer thoughtful, convenient service and good value for money to all of our customers. For the past several years we have been providing free airport transfers, a free shopping shuttle service to Bridgetown and a complimentary bottle of Pirate Punch in all guest rooms on arrival. Unfortunately, present times dictate that we make some necessary changes to the way that we operate our business and sadly, we are no longer able to include these free services for our guests. That means that there will be no more free airport transfers, shopping shuttle or bottle of Pirate Punch provided for any guests booked to arrive after September 22nd, 2020. This policy will apply for all guests, whether booked directly or via a tour operator. We are truly sorry but hope that everyone will understand and appreciate our reasons for making these changes.
