Stayed here June 26th to June 30th and I would not have stayed anywhere else ! First off, the weather forecasts for "isolated or scattered showers" is [--], it was pure sunshine every single day and before I arrived as well. I chose this hotel initially because it had it all - a sandy beach to lay on, a dock to jump off and get onto the dive boat, a yard with picnic tables for bbq-ing, and of course a deck that wraps around. I ATV-ed around the whole island and saw other places which cannot beat this! Not only were the accomodations very comfortable ( me and my boyfriend got the private room with private bathroom on the 2nd room with air conditioning), but the feel of the entire place is friendly, chill, fun, it always had everyone in a great mood. The air conditioning is quiet and got us too cold every night - I would actually be turning it off mid-way , but worth getting if you're "always hot" ! And tons of brownie points for the bar downstairs, it wasn't a deciding factor for me to have a bar or kitchen at the hotel because I love to venture out to other places, but I was at the bar so much! whether it was passing through, or to talk to people, to grab water, and beers of course, or checking out the menu, it definitely is a hot spot for all the guests. They offer breakfast of whatever you want which we pre-ordered the day before, and offer great meals for lunch and dinner. Dessert I didn't personally try, but everyone was raving about the pies. And another surprise was a locked area behind the bar for storage of all the diving gear. Captain Morgan's (the dive shop affiliated ) picks you up right at the dock, and drops you off right there, there are bins of fresh water to soak your gear in and a huge room to hang everything to dry / for the next day. Please check my review for Captain Morgan's as of course I dove with them during my stay and loved it. The beach was perfect, they have floaties and a canoe and pretty shells to pick. You can snorkel and see tons of fish especially under the dock. I was warned about the mosquitos and that is everywhere on the island so bring bug spray or buy it at the store. I laid in a colorful hammock everyday swaying and looking out at our beach and gorgeous scenery. The owner Kevin did a great job and it would be super cool if they eventually built a 3rd floor for more rooms and a higher rooftop to see more stars. Many people I met wanted to stay here once they arrived but all the rooms were taken - of course - I jumped onto the reservation as fast as I could ;) Had a great time, best vaca ever ! Going to spread the word out !
