My hubby and I stayed at the Gems in February 2014 and were pleasantly surprised to find how quiet this place was. We were in town for a dive class, and stayed at the Gems for 8 nights. It was a very relaxing and welcoming experience; Hance made us feel more like special guests in his home than customers at a hotel.
Our room was very well decorated, and I liked the bath products provided. We had a great view and our own balcony with steps to a path leading to the beach. We actually ended up being the only guests on a couple days of our stay, and basically had the beach to ourselves. While snorkeling, we even saw a couple sting rays!
Sandy's cooking is as legendary as the other reviews say, and I highly recommend her curried mutton for dinner. It was awesome.
This was a great place to stay.
