Expert Review

Opened in April 2009, Cotton Tree’s four cottages – painted sea foam green and powder blue – each have two bedrooms, two bathrooms (with Elemis bath products), a sitting area, and a full kitchen well-stocked with snacks and drinks (alcohol is on hand, for a fee); all but one have sea views. Interiors forego the stereotypical “island” décor in lieu of sophisticated prints and dark wood furniture. The cottages all have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, a Wii console, and free movies via Apple TV. Outside, take a dip in the pool or hot tub.  Though just a few yards away, the beach is pretty rocky (and watch out for sea urchins) because it’s a protected turtle nesting site – but the hotel offers free shuttle service to nearby West Bay Public Beach, as well as other island attractions and restaurants.  You can also borrow a bike to explore the neighborhood. There is a tiny on-site spa hut with a single treatment room, offering services like exfoliating body scrubs and massages.  Cotton Tree can arrange all manner of other activities both at the property and around the island, from scuba diving to an on-site art class to a catered meal by the sea with an expert wine consultant.
