When we arrived to Fregate Island, we had high expectations (as we had seen many incredible photos)! Our expectations were exceeded.
From the moment you step foot on the island, you are in complete holiday mode. No request is too small or too large for the staff. One day we asked to have breakfast in the treehouse, another day we asked for lunch on the beach. The food at each of the restaurants is of an incredibly high standard so we spent our three nights / four days trying all the different items on the menu.
The rooms are incredible especially the private pool which comes with each of the villas! By far the largest private pool we have ever had in any Hotel. It was beautiful how private each of them were as well, we were not able to see any other villas from our room!
It is amazing that this slice of paradise exists where tortoises room the island freely. We loved driving around the island in our own golf buggy passing the tortoises on our way!
This place deserves 5 stars no matter what, it is simply a nature wonderland which has been preserved excellently. However, there were a couple of dings, which I believe are being remediated.
Food quality wasn't up to the level we had expected AND requested. I.e. my wife is very health conscious and had requested avocado and other food to fit her diet... it took the manager to get in a boat to the main island to get this, but that was a couple of days.... this was the low season, so not that many guests, but we had requested this as we always do. However, we did have wonderful meals, especially in the tree-house and also the the owners estate.
Diving will be AMAZING if you go during the good diving moths, we didnt however it was still pleasurable and the equipment is good. At the price I would have expected two-tank dives, but due to the shallow dives, they were 50+ minutes both days and quite good. First time I saw a Spanish Dancer (we saw two).
The beaches are wonderful and you can have your own beach for the day, the birds are plentiful and so are the tortoises. My wife loved the yoga and she is a yoga instructor herself.
We forgot the plush-toy tortoise (and have a grandchild who would love that), so Management agreed to send that to us in NYC as well a Fregate Cap, which is my standard souvenir from these places. Have not received it yet... but there is a long distance to NYC.
No matter when you go, this will be memorable.
