Given the two solid weeks of rain the holiday was not the paradise we had hoped for after waiting over a year for a break from work..! We made the best of it by swapping snorkelling for moped trips around the island and spending a lot of time at the pacific resort bar on the beach as it was a great place to sit in the driving wind and rain and the excellent cafe around the corner on the main road. The accomodation was in a great location and I think it would have been good direct access in to the water to swim. There were renovations going on when we stayed which probably look quite good if now finished - traditional roofing around the pool and a bar area being added. The rooms were average but clean. Hopefully the linen and pillows have now been updated with something closer to cotton and down rather than what felt like polyester sheets. One of the kayaks has a huge hole in it so be careful don't end up dragging it back in the rain and then trying to drag it back up the sand dune without emptying it of the water. To be honest I would think the new owners would have updated these by now. I would go back as I think the renovations will be good, however I'd need it to be sunny to enjoy it a second time round!
