We've thoroughly enjoyed both our stays at The Retreat. Our family has two introverts and two extroverts...the beautiful thing about this spot is it caters to all types of vacationers!
The accommodations are among the best that I've seen. Clean, large, quiet, well-equipped and right on the beautiful beach. BBQs are available, there are plenty of beach chairs and quiet spots to sit, and the pool is really great.
If you're craving a bit more action, just duck next door to Rum Point, where there are many water sport options, yummy food, killer Mud Slides and plenty of people watching. You can beach walk your heart out, play beach volleyball or sleep in a hammock. Things get much quieter after 5pm when the cruise ship visitors go home, but if you want a bit of nightlife, you can head to Kaibo or do the hour drive into Georgetown.
If I had a bucket of money to spend, I'd probably spend it on a condo at The Retreat - in all my travels, this spot feels most like happy home. Until that happens ;-), we'll continue to squeeze in a trip every year or so - it really is heaven on earth.
