My wife and I spent a week in one of the apartments and ate breakfast/dinner meals at the restaurant. We were the only guests -- as it was early in the season -- and we had the entire place to ourselves. It was peaceful, quiet, and relaxing.
Nicole goes out of her way to make your stay comfortable and accommodating. She offered choices for every meal and whether the fresh fish, crab cakes, or the beef bourguignon -- every meal was a delight. Watching the full moon rise as we sip a glass of wine, made for a very romantic setting and atmosphere. And then you get to wake up to your breakfast choice of omelets, pancakes or french toast from local bread!!
Need to get rid of that stress and relax on your vacation? Then just ask Mary (who also works in the restaurant at night) for a massage, like we did EVERY DAY! $ US 25 for an hour of heaven!! Follow that with a walk on the beach (less than 2 minutes away) and a stop at the beach bar for happy hour and getting the picture of just how nice this place is.
Add in a beautiful view of the ocean and the trade winds and you have found paradise at El Marinique.
Yes, Las Galeras is off the beaten path, but it is an easy bus or taxi ride and worth the time/trip. If you want to be surrounded by a 1000 tourists, pushy crowds and loud noise -- this place isn't for you.
