Pros: The sea house was impressive. 3 bedrooms. (1 w/ king, 1 with queen, 1 with two twins)...2 level with an upstairs patio off "master" ... tub for 2 as well as shower ... 3 bathrooms ... kitchen with microwave ... front porch to view the ocean in the shade ... large TV with "American channels" ... internet connection in living room (complimentary) ... very nice and accommodating staff ... cool A/C + fans in each room ... kayaks and Hobie craft for your use ... incredible POOL ... 2nd largest Barrier Reef w/in kayak distance
Staff is multi-lingual - English, Spanish, Creole
Staff is VERY friendly !
1 restaurant on property which is a little pricey (but VERY nice...and great wait staff)
Nearest "grocery" requires a 15-20 minute walk (difficult to carry back all groceries) - but you can rent a golf cart by the hour instead, or borrow bicycles from the hotel which have baskets...however, when you get there it is a "shot in the dark" if they will have what you need (like chicken or milk)... prices are NOT cheap, but affordable...
Seaweed up to the shore...so snorkel opportunities are not easy and require some effort (we tried first night at end of dock - saw some awesome stuff to include string ray and large crab) but we were not real safe from passing boats due to limited visibility.
Water heater broke - but they "rigged it" quickly, and we had no problems. A/C broke, but again, immediate response and they fixed it before it got too hot.
When there is no wind - mosquitos are everywhere - take Mosquito repellent. We took OFF and the OFF clip on fans. Worked wonders in the jungle...:) When you have the great breeze - not so much of a worry.
Tipping: Some places it is included, others not, but it is not well defined. Take a lot of small bills for this purpose! *Don't forget fees that are here and there and must be cash!
Tax = 12.5% -- eek !
Must see the Barrier Reef, Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan (40 per person + tax). Our guide, Carlos, actually caught a shark for us to "pet" ... priceless! The first thing we saw was a sea turtle - awesome! Mayan Ruins were really cool too. (145 per person fee + tax)
*We bought snorkeling gear at Costco and took with, but they have it for rent too.*
