Actually, the name says it all; its like your own private hermitage for a slice of time. The food was outstanding. All employees were both friendly and professional; nothing was a problem. As an example of this attitude, our suite had an expresso machine. Neither my wife nor

I'm planning to visit in February. Are the plunge pools heated? (I read that heaters were being added.) If not, what is the average water temperature in the afternoon/evening at this time of year?
I don’t believe it is heated but like the pool and ocean you acclimate to the temperature quickly. It’s very refreshing. We used it daily.

Is alcohol included ? Where is the closest place I can jet ski or go Parasailing?
Hello, yes our rates are inclusive of all made-to-order, a la carte meals (daily menus), soft drinks, house wines and premium spirits, including Grey Goose, Johnny Walker Black and Tanqueray, for example. We offer a number of reserve wines and deluxe spirits as well, however these are charged in addition to the standard AI rates. As for parasailing, the closest option is at Dickenson Bay which is about 35 minutes from Hermitage Bay. Jet Skis are available at the nearby Jolly Beach, which is about 10 minutes from Hermitage Bay.

Is your resort "Adults Only"?
Hello! Apologies for the delay. We do welcome teenagers 14-16 years of age, when sharing a suite with their parent(s). It is very rare that we have any teens in house, however.

how is the snorkeling? can i snorkel from the beach?
Hi Diane. We do provide complimentary snorkel equipment and you may snorkel just off of our beach, where there is a coral reef. If you want to see more sea life, however, we recommend that you book a snorkelling excursion to Cades Reef or similar. We would be happy to provide recommendations and pricing if you send an email to info @ hermitagebay com. Thank you! Stephanie

"Not a bad room in the place. "
"Go for the hill side villas with plunge pool for ultimate privacy & outdoor space"
"The Villas on the mountain was excellent! The higher the better if you like view and privacy!"
"Room 24 had an incredible view. "
"The bed is wonderful, and leaving the louvers open at night, provides a soothing background of waves crashing on the beach. Great sleep."
