My hubby and I visited SCYC the first week of April 2013, our first but not last trip to Staniel! I am officially obsessed and have already booked our second trip.
We are used to more commercial locations and larger resorts but I feel no need to ever go anywhere else than Staniel from here out!
We stayed 6 nights in the Blue Cottage which was clean, comfy and an unbelievable view. The water below our deck always had fish, sharks and rays swimming below with beautiful sunsets in the evening. Oh, one recommendation…if you like to sleep past 7:30 in the morning, bring earplugs!! There are birds that rise and shine around that time and they are the noisiest birds I have ever heard. We loved them and didn’t want to waste any time getting onto our boat, so we welcomed their screeches.
The boat is key! Don’t be scared to get in and go! I was a bit worried at first we would get lost but it is SO easy to get around and the boat is so easy to use that within the first 30 minutes we were pros! Enjoy the beaches, they are magical! We would park on a beach snorkel the rocks around and saw some of the prettiest fish and colorful coral. You have to snorkel Thunderball Grotto period.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They even help me find a piece of missing clothing they got mixed up in the laundry. Super people and always happy to help. The food was great and I still miss that Mango Shrimp I had for lunch a few times. We enjoyed every dinner and the bar atmosphere before and after the dinner bell.
I cannot say enough great things about SCYC and the island of Staniel Cay. Go and enjoy it for yourself, I am positive you will want to go back again and again!
