We stayed at the Islamar Villas from July 26, 2006 to August 9, 2006. This place was wonderful. The best feature is the small pool that is perfect for cooling off in after returning from a hot day shopping, at the beach, or diving. We truly felt at home here. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Zuri did an excellent job of keeping the place tidy for us and Jackie was very helpful with any questions we had. I would highly recommend staying here. The only thing to consider is that it is a good 20 minute walk to the waterfront, but in some ways that is what makes this place unique. It is in the middle of a local neighborhood. The only down side was the barking dogs in the neighborhood at night. In the two weeks that we stayed here, there were a couple of nights that I had trouble sleeping because of the barking. However I would highly recommend staying here. It was an excellent experience and a great value for your money. We look forward to returning in the future.
