Once again, Tripadvisor saves the day! All the reviews are right--Aquamarine Beach Houses are a dream.
My boyfriend and I just got back from a 4-night stay. Paula greeted us the moment we arrived and gave a run-down of everything we could ever need to know. She's absolutely lovely--we felt at home right away. We stayed in Sunset #3--the rooms were cozy and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the equipment we needed to make simple meals (and pina coladas). The housekeeping staff was top notch, the airconditioning was perfect, and the bed was heavenly. There's also reliable wifi and cable TV (we never turned it on--too much to see!). They also provide a cell phone for calling cabs/making resturant reservations. Every detail has been thought out.
We made a supermarket run on our first night. It's an easy 10-minute walk (only tricky part is crossing the highway--it's a little like Frogger come to life). The IGA is a great big market, and yes, many things are pricey. But it's an island, so we expected it. The folks at the market called us a cab so we didn't have to schlep back. Fair price and a friendly driver.
But I'm burying the lead, The beach--just a short walk from our room--is magnificent. Quiet, private and truly magnificent. Super-comfy beach chairs and portable cabanas are provided (along with snorkel gear, beach toys, pool noodles). The snorkeling is some of the best we've ever done--the reef is stunning and the fish are beautiful! I was only disappointed that I never saw a turtle (next time I will stay in the water until I find one!). The sand is perfect. The water is perfect. It's just the most relaxing and wonderful place. At night we sat on the beach too--it was quiet and great for star gazing.
I can't wait to go back.
