We arrived on a Thursday around 5:00pm at Marsh Harbour Airport. The check-in/customers was quick and easy, no complaints. We caught a taxi and reached Albury's Ferry within minutes. The Ferry took us to Hope Town Harbour Lodge's back enterance.
My brother and I brought our significant others and met our families in Hope Town for our cousins wedding.
As soon as we arrived to HTHL, the office people were very nice and helpful. They walked up down to our cabanas....having looked on Tripadvisor and all over the internet to see what our cabanas looked like and where they were located "Ocean Front" really did NO justice. The Cabanas Literally had the BEST location!! The only and I mean only compalint I would have is that the shower was itty bitty not so pretty. Other than that, our porch, was perfect, the room was spacious, etc.
It was nice not having a TV in the room or even a telephone....OH ALSO NO NETWORK CONNECTIONS.... but all you have to do is use a computer upfront if you just HAVE to stay connected to the world. Also, we couldnt use our cellphones so all we had to do was pay $5 to make long distance calls from the office's portable phone to call home and check-in once a day. (IF NEEDED)
The beach here is amazing!!!! clear water, sandy ocean floors and coral reef all over the place. Now even though the reef wasnt all too colorful there was tremendous life there...schools of large blue tang and many fish. The snorkeling here is a must!!
I think the islands favorite dish was CONCH, they had Conch Fritters, Conch Burgers, etc...they were delicious.
My cousins had their wedding here and they did a gorgeous set up on the beach and a beautiful set up at the Reef Bar & Grill...beautiful!
My only complaint was that everything closed fairly early here, bars. And there were at least 10, 21-35 years olds looking to have fun.
OH AND TAKE A GOLF CART RIDE TO ---- TAHITI BEACH ---- !!!!
