I was lucky enough to come across a brief description of this resort entitled "Seclusion", while searching ---.com for the perfect honeymoon spot for my wife and I. The resort delivered exactly what we were looking for. Complete and total seclusion/relaxation with exceptional service.
If you're looking for a place with a lot of "bells and whistles", do not book here. You will be treated, however, to unbelievable caribbean scenery, outstanding food, and an unforgettable time. Although they've been doing this for years for many guests, we were always made to feel special.
If you can get a cottage on the south side of the island, I would highly recommend #17 or #18. There is a lot of privacy on this side of the island. Make sure to bring your bug spray if you're going in the summer months...I didn't have so much of a problem but my wife is a bug magnet! The strong breeze coming off the water makes up for the lack of air conditioning during the night but be prepared for a little warmth at night. It's all part of the island charm!
The food was fantastic and we were able to try a number of things that we'd never had (or even heard of) before. We made great friends with some of the wait staff and the bartenders. All are extremely friendly and always willing to share stories.
Make sure to take a hike to the top of Marni Hill and, for the athletic types, take out one of the Ocean Kayaks and paddle around the island (How often can you say you kayaked around an entire island!??).
We had a lot of fun visiting with the island labradors who were at our porch every morning to greet us. We are dog people and loved having the visitors and getting to play 'fetch' with them on our beach.
We will definitely travel back here as soon as we have the opportunity!
