First of all, let me say that the owner is a very nice and helpful guy!
When we made the reservation at Limestone, it was based on the high rating on Tripadvisor. It seemed to have everything we could want. Diving, Spa and it came with a rental car.
Well, the dive instructor went on a visa-run, so that was closed. The spa-manager went to Cuba to start another resort, so that was closed. And the rental car is absolutely needed, because the only thing within walking distance from the resort is the most expensive resturant on the island.
Limestone does not offer breakfast, any meals, any bar. Be prepared to spend hours in the rental car since Limestone is a fair bit away from anything.
Limestone DOES offer, a relaxing atmosphere (as long as the owner doesnt invite the local scouts, a few friends families or other random people that was running around making noise.)
The garden apartment has nothing to do with garden. It's overlooking the parking lot. Also, unless you chase the cleaning staff around to clean the apartment for you, you will end up like us with loads of maggots crawling around in the apartment.
All in all, make sure what you're getting in to.
