My family spent a long weekend at apartments associated with the Bannister since the hotel was full. The staff were very helpful to make sure we had accommodations and had use of all the hotel amenities. The hotel is small and has a great view of docks with boats of many very nice persons who have vacation apartments surrounding the hotel. There are a few restaurants to eat at and many pools for the kids to spend hours in. We also purchased food at the small mini-market. We were lucky enough to have family with a boat that allowed us to explore the coast and make a short ride to Cayo Levantado which was a great adventure. Overall, the Bannister is very new, has very well manicured grounds and definitely a great place to get away from life for awhile.
