Taxi to us? After you arrive in Antigua and pass through immigration and customs there are the normal amount of tourists pushing and shoving to go "I don't know where" be calm, you're on vacation, there is a nice local taxi dispatcher who will direct you to a taxi to us. The fare here is U.S. $ 28.00 for two and takes about 30 minutes.
Flight details? Please remember to forward your flight details, so we all will know when to expect your arrival. One usually arrives at Long Bay 1 hour after your flight lands at V.C. Bird International Airport.
What's Included? Prices quoted; are for the experience of the whole resort not just your room and are for two sharing, including full Breakfast daily, Dinner nightly in our world class Turtle restaurant, Gratuities and Tax (20.5%), along with our extensive complimentary features.
Rent-A-Car? Cars are available from all major rental agencies. Rent-A-Cars go for about U.S. $50.00 per day there is a U.S. $ 20.00 one time fee to purchase a local drivers license, this is more a tax then anything else. Insurance runs $15.00 but your credit card company may cover you. We can order the car for you and they will deliver it to the hotel the morning, after you arrive, that way you can do all the paper work in a comfortable setting. I don't suggest you get a car directly from the airport when you arrive, as the last thing one wants to do is get lost, while trying to find Long Bay, after traveling all day. If you decide to book with a company from your end request, that they deliver the car to Long Bay Hotel, on the day of your choice or we can book one for you, just let us know which day. We don't collect, commissions on sales, so you can be sure we will use the best agency available.
Currency? We use the Eastern Caribbean dollar, ECC, One U.S. = ECC. $ 2.60. Our currency exchange rate is pegged to the U.S. Dollar, therefore never changes, against the Dollar.

Day Tours? We are glad to offer shore and sea tours in addition to those we offer from the Inn. It is better to wait until you get a feel of our surroundings before you over plan your days away from " Our Idea of Paradise". We do suggest you book an island tour U.S. $ 80.00; for two 5 hours, which encompasses a chauffeured island wide road trip, to experience our islands Local flavor.
Electricity/Power? We offer both 220 volts, like Europe and 120 volts like America. The sockets are two pin flat plugs just like in America so we suggest you are VERY careful. We can loan you Hair Dryers, available at the front office. For other items small wattage transformers are also available. Most new electronic devices, Laptops etc. work on 100 to 240 volts check your Cell Phone or Laptop's AC adapter to see. We do have plug adapters.
Water? Water here at Long Bay, is potable. Water in general, in the islands, is a scarce resource, we encourage all to conserve water whenever possible. Bottled water is available for a fee.
Sun-Tan/burn? We are only 17 ° degrees above the Equator so our sun is VERY intense. On top of that our sand is truly white, reflects all the suns rays, so one can get a tan even in the shade. Suntan Lotion is expensive so bring Sun Block with you.
Check In/ Check Out?Check in is 2:00PM. Check out is 12:00 Noon. In some cases we are glad to extend check out until 2:00PM. Late check out after 2:00PM will be charged at ½ the daily rate up to 6:00PM. after 6:00PM the full rate will be applied. We suggest if you are traveling on a late flight to Europe you request a rate so we can pre-book your room for an extra night, otherwise a late check out option, may not be available.
From all of us here, we're hoping to serve you and introduce you, to our idea of "Island Style". Book soon!
Children? Surprisingly Long Bay is loved by Children. They like the small footprint of the Inn, although it still offers enough room for both parents and kids, to enjoy a super holiday. The Resort area is very safe, so worries of security, are blissfully absent here. Kids are people too, so rates for young ones are as extra guests sharing with a parent.
Dress Code? We are fairly casual here at Long Bay. We do however expect gentlemen to wear long trousers and shirts with real collars after 7:00PM. Jackets are not required. No Shorts after 7:00PM.
Tennis? Please bring your own racquets and balls. We do not offer a tennis Center. We do have a few loose strung tennis racquets lying around and some old balls but if you are serious about a match please remember to bring your own equipment. Flat soled tennis shoes required. Our Court is lighted for night play.
Beach? The Beach at Long Bay is one of the best on the Island for Swimming, Sun Bathing & Snorkeling. The beach is also calm and shallow, great for children or novice swimmers. It also boasts a Westerly view which is great for the afternoon Sunsets.
No Pool: With all the calm clear water that surrounds Long Bay, we feel, a pool would be an insult to nature & our environment.
Extra Beds?We here feel that Hotel rollaway's are designed as tools of torture, therefor, in our Cottages and Guest Accommodations we only use regular Twin sized beds as extra beds, they are bigger, harder to move around but they are infinitely more comfortable. All the cottages support Trundle beds, see example of a typical Trundle bed, right.
Internet Access! Yes we offer Wireless Internet access. Bring your laptop and it is FREE. Service is available in both the main Club House and at our Beach House restaurant. Sorry we don't offer service in the guest rooms or cottages.
Babysitting? We offer Babysitting, one of our staff who is off will be glad to come in and look after your children. Rate U.S. $ 8.00 per/hr. Please remember that since our resort is so small and comfortable, you may not feel the need, for a sitter.
