The condos are clean, quiet and have enough kitchen utensils/pots/pans to easily make meals. Our one bedroom also had a washer and dryer which was a nice surprise. The only complaint I have is the unit we stayed in had the worst kitchen layout I've ever seen. Most people might not notice but I love to cook so it irriated me. Our first floor unit had upgraded lounge chairs so that was definiely worth the trade off for the kitchen! Maid service is extra but they will change the sheets and towels midway through your stay without opting for maid service. Plus there are extras in the closet.
When we arrived our luggage didn't but the staff at Carib Sands worked with the airlines to get our luggage to us and when all but one bag came they went the extra mile on a Sunday to ensure we received it, even after their business hours. They also arranged our car and diving before we arrived, and worked with us when we requested modifications.
You can walk next door to Captains Table for dinner or drinks and they also have live music some evenings. Diving is down the street at Brac Reef Divers. They will pick you up or you can drive there. It's about a mile down the road, looks like it's right next door on maps and it is not, so beware. Brac Reef Resort where Reef Divers is located, also has evening activities and a very nice bar and restaurant.
If you're not a diver there is wonderful snorkeling right outside the door of the condo in the reef sheltered bay. The water rarely gets deeper than 4 feet and the temperature varies from bath water warm to occasional cold patches. We saw litters of baby stingrays, eagle rays, spotted and chain moray eels, tons of baby fish, huge conch, lobsters, large tarpon and baracuda.
Grocers, bank and licquor stores are all within a mile of the resort.
