ROOM ONLY RESORTS
ADMIRAL’S INN – 4* boutique hotel within the grounds of Nelson’s Dockyard
BED AND BREAKFAST
Nicole & Adam’s studio accommodation is located in a peaceful hillside location with far reaching views across Dickenson Bay. The studio is within the grounds of their family home. Whether you would like to stay for a night or two or the entire duration of your stay, don’t miss signing up to one of the fantastic cooking classes at Nicole’s Table cookery school while you are there.
All Inclusive Resorts
Many all inclusive resorts are situated on idyllic beachfront locations. ‘All inclusive’ generally means all food in the buffet restaurants, local brands of spirits, wine and soft drinks are included in the price. Non-motorised water sports, entertainment, beach towels and sun loungers are also offered at no extra charge. Spa facilities, fine wine and champagne are usually available at an extra cost. Some resorts have a couple of additional menu choices which are chargeable too.
For those solo travellers who wish to explore the island and prefer to eat in a variety of restaurants then a ‘room only’ option is a good idea.
