My husband and I stayed eight days in May. We prefer small luxury hotels. We were looking for R&R, beautiful beaches, privacy, good food and drinks. We found it all at OBB. Our room was clean and beautifully decorated - very comfortable. The king bed and linens were absolutely wonderful. Housekeeping service was reliable and punctual - same time every day. Pool was great. We did have two or three days when the wind was nil and the no-see-ums were biting. On those days we had to leave the beach/pool around 4:00. This was disappointing as it is our favorite time of day on the beach. The restaurants provided great food and service. One fine dining restaurant - great food and you pay for it...but worth it to us. The casual dining Grill also had good food at reasonable prices, however, the AC broke and did not get fixed for a few days. We sailed on the hobicat almost every day, did the "private island" lunch thing - loved that. Read three books by the pool, rode bikes, ate great. Best Pina Coladas in the world! This is not the place if you are looking for exciting night life. We were in our rooms by 11 pm at the latest. When leaving the airport for obb, Recommend you have the taxi driver ($80 cab ride) stop at a liquor store and grocery store for beer, etc and snacks for the room - you'll save a bundle that way. OBB is secluded and way off the beaten track. All activities can be arranged at the straw bar. We will definitely go back. We gave it a 9 out of 10 because of the no-see-ums.
