My wife and I were looking for a romantic getaway and the opportunity to just unwind and found exactly what we were seeking at Villa Tropical at Shack's Beach. We stayed in a condo directly on the beach and could walk out our door and into the water at any time day or night. Trevor (one of the owners) was a gracious host and the entire staff were considerate and helpful yet managed to allow us the privacy we craved. The views were spectacular, the snorkeling at the Blue Hole was first rate, and the beach was pristine. We slept late, sunbathed and strolled the beach at sunset, and walked to Ola Lola's for breakfast. On that note, we must give them a shout out for the best coconut french toast we have ever eaten! Overall I give Villa Tropical a 10 out of 10.
