My family and I stayed at the Firefly for spring break this past April 2013 and had an awesome time!! We traveled with another family and shared a house: Sweet Tea. It's a four bedroom four bath house with a family room, dining room, and big kitchen that more than accommodated our party of 8. We rented a boat and a golf cart for the week because no cars are available on the island. We wanted a place to go that isn't commercialized. We wanted a little bit of an adventure for our family. Well, this is perfect if that's what you are looking for. Make sure you do your grocery shopping on Marsh Harbor when you first arrive, because groceries are limited once you get to Elbow Cay. We also chose this destination because of the restaurant. After a day on the water, the last thing I wanted to do was have to cook dinner, so the restaurant at Firefly was awesome! One day we went fishing and the chef cooked our fresh catch (for a fee which we didn't mind at all) four different ways! There isn't a kid's club, but we didn't need one! Having the boat, two pools, and snorkeling around the dock was enough to keep our kids happy (9 and 7). We will definitely be back!!
