Do I have to tip?
No, tipping is discouraged (we feel it would compromise our famously friendly atmosphere). Instead, a service charge of 10% is added to your bill at the end of your stay. If, however, you would like to further reward our staff, please make a tax-free donation to The Old Road Fund, our non-profit program that benefits the local town, Old Road, and its worthiest causes.
Is there a dress code?
We like to describe the atmosphere at Curtain Bluff as the perfect balance between “relaxed” and “sophisticated.” To maintain that balance, we ask our guests to wear at least shorts and cover-ups at breakfast at the Tamarind restaurant and a shirt/cover-up in the Seagrape restaurant & Bar for lunch. In the evening, for dinner, some people get dressed to the nines but, at a minimum, we ask our gentlemen guests to wear long pants (trousers) and a collared polo shirt.
In Summer ( June 1st onward) children under 12 are permitted to wear smart shorts and polos in the Tamarind Restaurant.
Is there phone and computer access?
For those guests traveling with their computers, tablets, PDAs, etc. there is high-speed and Wi-Fi wireless internet access in all the rooms and the library.
There are two dedicated Media Rooms with a total of five computers, free Internet access, and phones, plus a sitting area and wide-screen televisions with VCR, cable and dish networks. Please note: at the request of our guests, there are no TVs in the rooms.
The computers in the Media Room near the Tamarind restaurant are loaded with the latest video games.
Are children welcome at the resort?
Of course. Our staff will bend over backward to accommodate any special sleeping arrangements (children sharing a room), dietary needs or preferences. All our activities are child-friendly, there are babysitters available, and there is even a TV/Games Room where our younger guests can gather, play computer games, Tweet, etc.
Do the restaurants cater to vegetarians?
