Just got back from a wedding/vacation at Fernandez Bay Village and could not have asked for a better beach location. We were greeted and picked up at the airport and took the brief drive to the resort where we met Donna - awesome hostess. Fantastic check in service - we got a brief tour of the important stuff - dining room and meal schedule, honor bar (yes in 2012 you can actually go to a resort and they trust you - just like the corner store where you write down what you drink and they bill you at the end!) and our villa.
We stayed at the Sea Garden villa which was perfect for two couples. Seperate but equal bedrooms joined with a comfy living room area - but we spent very little time in our rooms, too much to see and do. Comfortable beds, air conditioning, and cool outdoor showers. There is nothing better than taking a shower and having a cool breeze go by. Unique and fun!
Beach was incredible with fine white sand, gently sloping - great for kids to play. We took the complementary kayaks out to the small volcanic island to snorkel and then went around the bend through the mangrove river. Saw sea turtles. Tried paddleboarding for the first time. Took a cruise in the power boat (you can be your own captain). We visited the Hermatage (a must see) and toured the island - remote with it's own warm personality.
It was nice to have access to the internet in the lobby but a break from electronics was really the best part of this vacation. The resort provides all the modern conveniences with the unusual tranquility of being the only guests as far as the eye can see. You really do get your own beach here.
I did not get a chance to use the onsite bikes - we will have to save that for another time. The meals were fantastic with variety and plenty of food. The wedding was gorgeous and it seemed that nothing was too much to ask of this great family and staff. Go - you will not regret it. I know I will be back as soon as I can!
