Papaya Paradise was a great palce to stay, especially if you have a larger group. For our trip, we had eight people and rented both of the rooms in Papaya Paradise and the two rooms in the B&B next door, which is affiliated but run by a different couple. Bob and Jeanette, the owners, really made our trip wonderful. Bob had an almost uncanny ability to offer a great piece of knowledge that he had picked up in the 33 years on the island, or a funny story when it was wanted but also when you wanted privacy, he always was somewhere else. The location was perfect as it made a wonderful base to go to places all over the island. Members of our group golfed, hiked, shopped went to the beach and went sightseeing and everything was just a short drive away. The facilities were great and the kitchen was invaluable for cooking a simple meal or keeping wine(and leftovers) cool in the fridge. They also had everything that was needed for the beach available to borrow. I definitely recommend Papaya paradise to anyone.
I would say however that the other B&B gave the impression of imposing on their house rather than being a guest. As a sidenote, the nearby shop called Sushi Man located near the safeway has the best sushi that I have ever tasted.
