We chose Villa Tropical for the location as we had previously stayed on the East side of the Island and wanted to explore the west. We stayed in the F1 apartment which was very lovely and very clean. Mike and Val the owners upstairs were very accommodating and have a beautiful home and yard right on the beach with everything you need for a relaxing getaway. They even have coin laundry and an extra bathroom with a shower in the building behind their home which they let us use. That came in handy with 4 adults sharing the suite. We had some issues with hot water but they had been renovating and the problem was resolved quickly during our stay. The location was great for day trips as we explored many beaches everyday all along the north, west and south coast. It is kind of out of the way and so it was very quiet except for the frogs and the ocean which lulled you sleep. Although I should mention that there is an airport very close by and so there was some very large planes flying over at times. Because the surf was high during our stay, we were only able to snorkel at the beach in front of our apartment one day, which we were glad we had the opportunity as it was great! We never saw inside of the other apartments but we really liked ours and were very pleased with the accommodations.
