Beachhouse #25 was our home away from home! It was cozy, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen was perfect, we had all we needed to cook a full baked chicken dinner, mashed potatoes, the works! We did eat a lot of our meals at the local restauants on site (Thirsty Turtle and Vintage Pearl) both were excellent and delicious food! The staff at the resort we found to be very pleasant all the time. From the grounds workers to the cleaning staff to the servers, everyone was very accommodating to our needs. I liked that they always seemed to have a smile and and Hola for us! We liked the relaxed atmosphere at Bananarama and Island Pearl resort....I noticed while walking the beach every day that some of the other resorts were more the traditional modern condo type places, while Island Pearl were more rustic homes! I felt like I was truly in a tropical paradise and not just another hotel room. The air conditioning kept it comfortable, especially for sleeping. You really don't spend a lot of time in the rooms during the day....too much to enjoy outside that is for sure! The beds were comfy, and the cleaning lady came every day to see if we needed anything at all. We didn't feel the need to have her clean each day but she brought us towels and always emptied our trash. We had the breakfast everyday at the Thirsty Turtle (which comes with your room stay) We found it to be great all of the days! Plenty of food and really tasty. If you didn't like the breakfast they were featuring you could always have the fruit plate and cereal. The coffee was hot and ready and it was wonderful to sit out and watch the morning activities on the beach while enjoying breakfast! We had different sandwiches, chicken and pizza while there and never had a complaint! Dinner at the Vintage Pearl was quite elegant in comparison and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food we were served. A lot of of fine dining restaurants tend to be skimpy on their servings, not the case here at all. The wine selection was wonderful also. We were there during tropical storm Ernesto and the managers made sure to inform us what was being done as precautions etc....turned out of course not to be anything serious and ended up enjoying the waves that the storm brought in! We loved that we could do everything that we wanted right there...they also have a great tour center were they can show you things to do around the island and even set some of the excursions up for you. Great service for the guests! It has only been a few short weeks since we've been there and already we're trying to figure out how soon we can go back!
