Not a fancy tourist megahotel thank God. Only has a few units so the resort can probably can accommodate nor more than 30 guests. You can develop a close relationship with the staff very quickly and they make an extraordinary effort to help you with anything. The resort is nestled in palms and is isolated from other resorts. Very private and lay-back. Well maintained beach (they rake up the dead sea grass every day!). I loved our room and the wooden deck. Had the feel of a mountain cabin...somewhat rustic and warm but with an amazing ocean view and breeze!
My son and I shared the room and dove every day with Ambergris Divers. I was amazed at how easy it was to arrange transfers to their dive center in San Pedro. Basically, I only had to tell the manager that we wanted to do the morning or afternoon dive tomorrow...and their boat picked us up the next day precisely on schedule. Very efficient. Ambergris divers was recommended to us by a dive master in Georgia. She has used them many times. Great outfit.
We rented bikes from Joe's bike shop. Yes, the resort is 4.5 miles from town but we truly enjoyed to workout. Bikes can go in places (and park in places) that golf carts can't. We carried cinch bags (back packs) and also used the large bicycle baskets for carrying groceries.
The bikes come with bike locks FYI.
We selected a 7 night, 5 2-tank dive package. Great deal! We will come back again and hopefully with a group.
