We found this little island, with more staff than guests, thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable. Every employee, from the Resort Manager to the greenhouse keeper (and turtle rescuer) went out of their way to be friendly and helpful without being over-solicitous or imposing. We found a...More

ReviewerMaryland1
I've always wanted to stay at this resort and have a few questions for the experts: 1. I know WiFi is limited. How is 3G coverage? I love the idea of being cut off in general, but would have family that we'd need to be able to know could reach us by text as needed (not just upon visits to the library or lobby) for a variety of reasons. 2. Are there sufficient beach chairs such that chair saving is a non-issue? I read one recent review about a large group of guests taking over the beach chairs at 6am daily. I'm hoping this is an anomaly (the large group and its behavior). 3. Do activities like beach volleyball take place daily or do they depend on the activity level of guests present? Are there tennis clinics, lessons, and/or game matching for players? 4. Finally, I know there is a pool. Is it free form or is there a lap pool anywhere on the grounds? How's the sea for open water swimming? Calm enough? Free of jelly fish? Thanks in advance!

$100 EC or $40 USD paid per person at the airport. It likely isn’t included, it’s never been included in any of our packages.
