We stayed at Aqua Bay Villas from July 17 to July 26, 2012 and had a wonderful time. This time we stayed in Azul Le Mur, which is a one bedroom villa with a kitchen, dining area as well as a living area. It also had a great deck with a dining area for two. I traveled with my husband and 10 year old son. The villa met all of our needs and then some. Towels and beach chairs are provided which was wonderful since we rented a jeep and beach hopped the entire stay on the island. The villa is in walking distance to town and we were able to walk into town nightly for dinner and shopping but I recommend renting a jeep so that you can explore all that the island has to offer. The villa also has a small plunge pool. The pool was great to cool off after a day at the beach. We also enjoyed using the grill by the pool daily.
The property manager Robin, was extremely helpful by picking up our family from the ferry and taking us over to the jeep rental company.
I would recommend sampling the many restaurants as well as touring the island by jeep. There are so many beautiful beaches and having a car makes it easy to access all of them
We all loved the villa and plan to return again next year with friends or family. We are already planning our trip to Aqua Bay next year!
