We were at the Cloisters for 4 weeks. We found all the people in San Pedro to be very
friendly and hospitable. This beachfront location was ideal for us. Its about a 10 minute
walk to town(best along the beach as its cooler that way). The Cloisters is just far enough
out of town to be very peaceful but close enough to be able to walk to town. The Cloisters
has its own bar and butch the bartender was always very nice and helpful. There is also
the Jolly Roger bar next door which has snacks or meals. We really loved the Palapa bar
which is about a 10-15 minute walk to the North of the island along the beach. It is a two
story bar set at the end of a dock and has a wonderful view of the sea and the reef.
Food and drinks are great there and again the bartenders are extra friendly. We don't
normally drink much but this was a great place to get to know people in the area.
The pool at The Cloister is just the right temperature and is well maintained and as
we were there at a quiet season we had it pretty much to ourselves. We generally
walked to town for groceries at Richies ' Supermarket and then were given a ride back
with our groceries. It was necessary to pay the toll for the bridge which was $5.Bz.
We loved our view of the sea from our sundeck and we loved the constant ocean
breeze....we found San Pedro to be a real paradise and we made many friends there.
Bob and Mattie took good care of us . We had daily maid service from Nedia whom we
grew very fond of.....must not forget to mention Jimmy who did all the maintenance for
the condos. He is a particularly nice young man and we appreciate his willingness to
help us and his friendly daily greetings.
