Going in August on a girls trip and trying to decide where to stay. Port Royal or Mayan Princess?
If you plan to stay at the condo and just chill on the beach , then you will be fine at either place But...if you plan on having fun and catching live music, eating out, shopping,etc... i would recommend you stay in town. Both places are nice, but a bit of a drive to anywhere. The Back Porch is an outdoor bar on the marina that is fun and will have live music, and some pretty great bands too. From here you can walk to most of the waterfront bars, restaurants and even to some places to stay. So, will depend on what you are really wanting to do while there.
Thanks SAlife! Can you recommend a hotel in town to stay at??
Port Royal has a resturant so you don't always have to drive to town to "eat out".
Well depends on what you want, condo, hotel/motel? amenties? The condos that are "high rise" similar to PR/and Mayan that are in town are the Dunes, Sandcastle and Aransas Princess. We have stayed at Sandcastle and APrincess, but not Dunes. Preferred the AP because it had 2 pools and did not seem as crowded that way. the Dunes is right by the big fishing pier, which is great if you like to fish. We have also stayed at Holiday Inn and Best Westn, which are about 2 blocks from the beach. there are alot of other places, just depends on what you want!
