We stayed in Condo #3 and it was perfect. The snorkeling out front and on this island is the best I've seen. We went out everyday and saw something new, everyday. Even though the week we stayed was on and off rainy, we still had a blast. So even the rain can't let you down at this place. We didn't have lightning storms, just pour downs, so we stayed out in the water and it was still crystal clear. The barracuda, we learned, likes to follow you. The last day there he followed us around and finally we freaked out and came in. When we did research, it seems they just like to follow sometimes, but don't hurt you. Just hide your underwater camera in your armpit and don't wear anything shiny. This place gives you a rental car with the room so we could go out and get groceries, and explore the island. We found a place called Spotts Beach where we swam with at least 6 sea turtles, went in town and took the Stingray City tour (amazing!), and drove up to Rum Point one night and had a few drinks and watched the Sunset. At the condo the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook and having a washer and dryer was great. I recommend this place for friends, couples or families with older children that like to snorkel, and relax and stay off the main, busy beach. Families that have small kids, I'd stay on the main beach. We had a family with young kids while we were there and the kids kept yelling they were bored and the ocean there is too rocky for kids to play in so all they have is the pool, which I heard one kid yell "I PEE'D, I PEE'D" while in the pool one day. Gross. So the parents, who looked worn out, were driving somewhere every day to keep the kids happy.
The only negatives I have are the mattresses are hard and you have no trash pick up or cleaning, which isn't that big of a deal except we didn't know what to do with the trash and it sat outside the front door all week getting nasty..we needed to ask about that, but never got around to it. Oh and driving was easier than in the states! Just may turn on the windshield wipers instead of the turn signal and vice versa a time or 10. ;)
The staff, the location, and almost everything about this place was wonderful and we can't wait to come back possibly next spring with my boyfriend and my friends husband.
Loved the condo, but didn't see the hotel rooms, so I can't really compare. Condo #3 had a n...

Thanks very much for your great review! It was a pleasure having you as guests, and we do look forward to welcoming you back. But, we sincerely regret that you didn't check with us about trash disposal, or read the "Guest Information" binder in your condo. Although daily housekeeping (including trash removal) is provided in all our one-bedroom apartments, condo guests are more "on their own", with their own dishwasher, washer, dryer, iron, etc., along with a full second set of linen and towels. And there's a trash enclosure at the corner of the condo parking lot for guests to place their trashbags in. Guests who may be too busy to check with our staff at the Inn office, are well advised to consult the "Guest Information" binder, which includes a wealth of useful information, suggestions, and the answer to virtually every question you might have.
