What Happened to Blue Reef?

My husband and I stayed in Blue Reef in 2008 when we visited AC. We loved that it was away from town -- peaceful, quiet, and beautiful -- and they gave us free rides on their water taxi whenever they went into town. It was a perfect world of accessibility to San Pedro and tranquility.

However, it seems they are closed now?? Are there any other places that offer this option? We don't want to pay tons for water taxis, as we will be bringing our (adventurous) young kids and every other day round trips for four can get expensive!

How about Caribbean Villas hotel?

It south of town but still walking distance to everything. They have a nice stretch of beach there, pool hot tubs and a beach bar. http://caribbeanvillashotel.com/

Other options that far north of town and similarily secluded would be El Secreto and Tranqulity Bay.

How about much further South of town at Pelican Reef, Athens Gate or Miramar Villas? Not quite as isolated as Blue Reef but quiet and nice, and much easier to get into town from (land taxi available or you can rent a golf cart or bikes)

Thanks for the suggestions all! I was really looking forward to returning to Blue Reef -- does anyone know when they will re-open?

Are there any other resorts that are in quiet locations that include intermittent boat rides to and from town?
