We splurged a little and opted for the three bedroom/ 2 1/2 bathroom villa the M3. With two pre-teens and an overworked husband, this unit gave us exactly what we needed. Yes, it was a little more expensive than some of the other units but it was spectacular. As the saying goes, "You get what you pay for" The unit was beautiful with an amazing kitchen/eating area. Comfortable beds all with ceiling fans and air conditioning. Some reviewers suggested that the units were old and needed "attention" but ours was perfect. Perhaps spending a little extra allowed us to be spoiled. The snorkeling was great especially at low tide. The beach was wonderful and not as busy as near by Jobos. We liked ours better as it catered to some local families and an array of visitors from various countries. The wind was a welcome treat as we were told that it was unseasonably hot for the time of the year. The information that was left in our unit with suggestions for restaurant, attractions and beaches was a welcome tool for our 5 day stay. We will definitely return to VT in the future.
