Poor management ruined our honeymoon here.

Little Dix Bay is a nice enough resort, but there are nicer places to stay with less associated headaches.
We honeymooned at Little Dix Bay in August of 2008, and they made two huge accounting errors with no apology.
First, they overcharged us by $6,000. When we brought this to their attention, no apology was made, but the charge was removed. Three months later, a charge of over $1,000 was posted on our credit card with no explanation. Apparently, when removing the initial charge, their staff made another mistake. Rather than contacting us, they simply charged our card without notice. That was totally unprofessional.
Further, the pool was small, often dirty, and rarely staffed by waitstaff. The waterfront was pleasant, but the daily paper told guests not to go in the water due to jellyfish.
It was not the most plesant experience.

We returned for our third visit in 2005 (see earlier comment from 2002). The food and service continue to be among the best, and most consistent, in the Caribbean.
Althought he beach was slightly eroded in places from 2002, it is still sufficently smooth and wide for lounge chairs and beach walkers not to interfere with one another.
Two great additions are the hillside spa (wow!) and the pool complex near the terranc restaurant. Both are welcome additions that help make resort this resort exceptional. You must use the spa at least once-we recommend the couples massage with dual private massage,champagne, and fruit platter while watching the sun set over the ocean. It is also a nice place just to sit and enjoy the view and double (small pools) and hot tub in an even more secluded and quite location in this very private resort.
The prices in Ferbuary are a bit outrageous, but if you can forget about what it cost,easier once you are enjoying the peacefulness and relaxation. As before, we hated to leave even after 10 days. We know we will return again soon.

Little Dix Bay is currently in its final stage of new construction and restoration.
Some of the improvements include a new GM, talented "Bocuse" trained Chef Denis Jaricot, a new pool, additional suites and, of course, the friendliest staff I've ever experienced!
Being in the hospitality business for 20 years, my wife and I look forward to tranquility, and you can find it here. When walking off site you are met with the same friendliness and cordial salutations as if you were a resident!
Keep up the good work and I look forward to next season!
