Tall Specs (provided because we six-footers have concerns that few websites address):
King-size beds are available and no beds have footboards. The semi-outdoor showers have "rain shower" heads that you don't need to scrunch to fit under and solid walls that extend high enough to provide privacy. Mirrors are hung about 6 inches too low to allow scrunch-free hair grooming.
Specs for Everybody:
For laid-back nature-lovers this place is heaven. Your private bungalow is wrapped on three sides with a porch fine-screened against even no-see-ums. On the short sand path just outside your door is a hammock and beyond that a living beach with short, sparse vegetation and lemon sharks, barracuda, and rays that entertain while you watch and disappear while you swim. That beach extends as far as you can see in both directions. It is backed by natural vegetation that supports birds, butterflies, colorful iguanas, and some very cool blue skinks.
Snorkle trips to brightly healthy reefs are topped only by snorkle trips to tidal blue holes (which can be very cold) and to an almost cosmic-feeling underwater fault. Clear, calm water and user-friendly design make Tiamo's sailboats and kayaks exceptionally easy to enjoy. The snorkle and hike guides are interesting, caring, and very knowledgable.
The food is indeed fancy and better than most eco-resort food, but we would have preferred lighter fare with more fruits and veggies -- and at least one meal of real Carribean jerk.
No matter...We loved the leisure, service, and benign jungle feel of Tiamo and shall definitely return!
