We stayed at the Renaissance Marina in Sept. 2012. We absolutely loved our stay, so much so that we are returning there in 3 weeks! The food is fabulous from the hotel restaurants, poolside at Blue to the private island. The staff are wonderful, friendly and very accommodating. Although the rooms may be a bit small, they are very comfortable and kept very clean (not that you spend that much time in the room).
The main reason we are returning, is the beach at the private island. How can you not love getting a boat ride every day to paradise! We went on an island tour by bus, which was so amazing! This time we would like to take a catamaran trip and maybe we will explore the island a little more on our own. You are so safe there, you can just hop on the city bus and go to the other beautiful public beaches. There is so much shopping around, if that's what you like to do.More
