“Great place to stay”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stayed one week at Mayaguana villa at the new, not yet finished Embrace Resort. Nikki takes the good choice for everybody and organized our stay quickly and precisely.The villa is well equiped and has everything you need: from beach towels to a cool box up to a picnic set. There's also a microwave, a coffee machine and a fridge. There's a fan, aircon plus a nice veranda on which you can relax. It's very clean thank's to Sonya's performance. For us, it was just perfect as we could prepare a light breakfast before starting the day. The resort is situated near to the little airport but also near a small protected bay where you can anchor your boat in case you like to rent one. George is a perfect teacher in navigation. Monique is wonderful, you can absolutely rely on her. We asked her to prepare a grocery basket in order not to loose precious time and everything was ready. She's always happy to help you. We hope to come back very soon.

We had booked a week at this resort and almost canceled because due to bad weather, completion was set back and the resort isn't yet finished. We were assured that we could be accommodated regardless, so we kept our reservation and are very happy that we did. We stayed in the Mayaguana villa. The villa was immaculate. The main room has a king size bed, sitting area, flat screen tv (with HBO, etc.), microwave, small refrigerator and a coffeemaker. The bathroom has a full tub and shower, sink with a vanity, and a nice sized closet.

Monique, the assistant manager, was wonderful to us. She did her best to make our stay as pleasant as possible and went out of her way to fulfill our every request (from a blender, to a knife, to a phillips head screwdriver). She picked us up at the airport, in a golf cart, which is the main mode of transportation on the island, and personally showed us how to get to the beaches. She also arranged our golf cart and boat rentals, as well as a guide to take us out on the boat. Plus, she is very friendly and we would have a nice chat each time our paths crossed.

Our housekeeper, Sonia, was great. She kept our room spotless and we had many nice chats with her, sitting on the front porch of our villa, when she had finished her work for the day.

We have been to quite a few islands but have never been any place where the people are as friendly as they are on Staniel Cay. As we drove around in our golf cart, everybody we passed smiled and waved to us. When we went into a store, we'd end up having a conversation with the proprietor and spend a half hour or more talking about the history of the island and various other things.

We did the usual tours: Big Major Cay to see the swimming pigs, Bitter Guana Cay to see the iguanas, Thunderball Grotto, Compass Cay to swim with the sharks and lots of other fun things. Fred, our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. We liked him so much that instead of going out on the boat on our own, we had him take us out a few times. If you aren't familiar with the waters, it's pretty easy to ground a boat and do considerable damage. Fred took us to the Sea Garden at the Land & Sea Park, which was a nice surprise. It was like swimming in an aquarium. He also took us past Johnny Depp's island, Tyler Perry's island and to an abandoned island, where we stopped to eat our lunch.

I could go on and on about the great excursions that we had but this review is about Embrace Resort, so I'm not going to. What I will say is that we loved Embrace Resort so much that we can't wait to go back. If our stay was this wonderful in a resort that isn't even finished yet, I can only imagine how great it will be when it is.

Thank you Monique, Sonia and Fred for making our visit to your island one of our best vacations ever.
