we had the two floor duplex, second bathroom was great, especially a real shower! If only the shower curtain was a bit longer and wider, the floor would have stayed dry! Beds were a bit hard, and tv small, but it was vacation, and not the point to watch TV.(except it was bowl week for college football! ) Nice porch facing the pool and the beach, ample space and closet. Mini fridge was handy too. Nice staff, great morning breakfast included on the patio by the pool.
great location between the "square" of restaurants and the beach with small parking lot between. Only negative was that the beach faced away from the sun, so you'd lose sun behind mountains late in the day, around 4 ish. Also we got a bit tired of the vendors on the beach selling coverups and aloe foot massages. Water was a bit rough for smaller kids, but take a day trip over to Pinel Island, quieter beach, calmer water , short boat taxi for 7$ round trip. Restaurants and snorkeling over there, and hiking on the island if you want.
