We were looking for peace, quiet, seclusion, and tranquility and got them all. Add to that the excellent service from Wayland and Lisa-Ann, our butlers and it made for a memorable experience. We had a semi-private beach available to our house and the white sand was like powdery sugar . They give you your own golf cart to roam the island as well as your own boat to go exploring the dozens of surrounding cays and will even pack a picnic lunch upon request. You can also hire a fishing guide for a 1/2 or full day or just a regular guide to take you around the islands. I would rate the food very good overall and excellent for the Bahamas considering my visit to Atlantis in Nassau last yr. left me severely disappointed in the cuisine category. They also provide you with a fully stocked fridge and pantry including alcohol.
The water is pristine and warm, and there are enough activities for those not wanting to lay on the beach or comfortable hammock all day to keep occupied (fishing, snorkeling, tennis, etc.) The only drawbacks were the lack of a spa and the mosquitoes but it's so relaxing a massage isn't necessary and mosquitoes are generally expected down there. Lastly, bring lots of cash (boat hires, tipping, shopping, etc.). Oh and the 2 dogs others have complained about, I think, added a touch of charm to our experience.
The best part was spending quality time with my lovely Telma. Hi babe!
