This is probably the best vacation I have taken. I have been to several places in Mexico, a Caribbean Cruise, South America, and every state in the Continental United States, so I have had some experience with travel. The beach was stunning, I couldn't take my eyes away from the water as I was trying to burn it into my mind so I could forever remember the color. It was quiet and relaxing, no crowds or craziness. My husband and I took our two children, ages 11 and 6 and they loved it as well. We took them snorkeling on one of the many reefs, we rented a car for the day and drove to Marsh Harbor, then took a ferry from there out to Man O War Cay. That was absolutely fascinating as there are no cars on the island, only golf carts because the streets are only that wide. We rented fishing poles from the marina one day to fish off the docks and each of us were able to catch fish. If you are looking for night life and tons of activities, this is not the place for you. You might as well head to Cancun with the rest of the crowd and have a cookie cutter vacation. If you want a unique and enriching experience to see how people live outside of the United States, this place is for you. One downfall was the food. It wasn't great and it was very expensive. If and when we go back, we plan to pack a suitcase full of food so we can do more of our own cooking. If you know where to look, you can find locals who deliver fresh fish and such, or you can catch your own. The locals were very friendly and happy that we were there. The other vacationers were friendly as well and it was fun finding out where people were from. We had British neighbors who were more than happy to lend a hand with our fishing, Germans who were getting scuba certified in the pool, and even some people from our hometown in Oregon. Our kids made quick friends with others playing on the beach and it was fun to see them at various events during the week. To be honest, the resort was a bit outdated, but it really did have everything we needed and the price was unbeatable. If you're after luxury, you may want to seek a different resort. For us, this was just what we needed as our lives are extremely busy right now. It was so nice to turn off our computers and cell phones for a week and just soak in the atmosphere.
