Early December 2012, we spent a gem of a trip at Carimar. This trip was donated for a silent auction at our church. We waited with anticipation and it was better than we could have imagined for the beauty of the beach and colour of the waters. Easy island to get around and see other beaches. Restaurants nearby were delightful. Carimar itself is well laid out for everyone to enjoy the gardens and the beach area. The staff were extremely attentive and well informed to ensure we knew where we were going and expectations. They handled reservations for our outings as well. Highly recommend Carimar for a relaxing and joyful holiday.
