We stayed in a private rental on the North Finger.
The resort feels safe and many of the private villas are well kept.The supermarket on site is definitely a bonus - and with careful attention to pricing you need not pay the earth to eat - though that said its almost as cheap to eat out for a main meal, as to to cook one yourself...and definitely avoid the familiar branded makes of pizzas and other pre-packed foods etc.
However, in all honesty I would not stay here again mainly due to; firstly the mossies - we were never able to enjoy sitting out in an evening due to begining bitten intensively. Thinking about it possibly the worst place for mossies is to be near an area of still water....on which most of the development is based ! Possibly if the villa was located beach front (VERY expensive) or on the open harbour area we might of faired better ? We will never chose a harbour development again when selecting a villa.
Second, we did get fed up with the intensity of the beach sellers and hawkers on the south beach. The North beach is much smaller and quiet, but we were somewhat put off by the native tarantula like spiders.
Would recommend the Italian on the North Finger - lovely hospitality and great food.
