Perfect spot.

Set in beautiful gardens with a great pool. Traditional entertainment. Reasonably priced very well presented food. Beautiful sunsets. Snorkelling, swimming, kayaking or just lazing on the sand. Friendly staff and great management. Ocean front Bure are the best.

Relaxing and memorable First Landing

We stayed for 10 days at First Landing Resort with another family. The beach appears unappealing at low tide but is actually quite fun to explore as long as you have reef shoes! The pools and grounds are lovely. What we loved most was that it was nice and quiet and being a bit smaller we got to know a few of the staff members quite well and they made us all feel special with their warm and welcoming natures. Also there are only 2 menus , pub and Restaurant so after 10 days you know them off by heart.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay at First Landing again but probably just for first 5 days then go to one of the islands for a change of pace.
Highly recommend as a resort to relax and unwind!
