My new husband booked this for our honeymoon as a surprise for me. Imagine my surprise when I found out we were spending 5 days on a tropical island with every amenity known to man and service of a quality that I have never experienced before. From the moment we stepped off the plane in Belize City we were met by a representative of the Island who took care of us and made sure we had everything we needed to make the next leg of the trip. When we got off the next plane, Luis (who would be one of our housemen) met us and got us in a taxi and took us to the pier for our boat ride to the island. We were met there Fantasy Island style by all of the "help". They each introduced themselves and we were swept away to our villa, Solana. Solana is on the western most tip of the island and my new husband made sure we had the villa that would give us the best sunsets because they are so special to us. The villa was beautiful, the scenery superb, the food so tasty with a beautiful presentation, the care that was taken of us by our housemen, Carlos and Luis was unmatched anywhere on earth. We could do something or nothing. Most days we chose nothing. It was so nice just to sit and soak up the atmosphere and each other. One day we soaked up too much sun and Luis brought aloe for us to use. We did have an aloe and seaweed massage. It was great for our sunburns and so relaxing. Also, my husband did arrange for a private picnic on a neighboring island. Everything was set up for us, umbrellas, dining table and chairs, places to lay out if we chose to. The island was beautiful and they even swept the sand for us. Lunch was brought with us in a huge cooler as was any drink you could ever want. They gave us a phone and told us to call when we were ready to return. My husband told them my favorite soft drink was Coke Zero and they made sure to supply us with it daily. The chef would visit everyday to go over the dinner menu for the evening and every evening we would be taken somewhere romantic on the island for dinner. The table would be set with candles and flowers, and the Caribbean Sea was just a few steps away. This is the most romantic place in the world and they know how to keep it that way. They are invisible until you want (or need) something and then they seemingly appear out of nowhere. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you want beauty, romance, a "do something or nothing" place to be, then you should visit here. I cannot wait to return. Just to tell you how thoughtful they are ... when we left the island, there they all were again ... lined up to tell us goodbye. I had lamented to my husband the day before that I wished I had asked them for all of the menus that they had presented us with each day so that I could have that "visible" memory. Imagine my surprise when Erica handed us a packed lunch in an insulated bag for our return to the airport as well as each days menu. It was like she read my mind. Love, love, love this place! Talk about how expensive it is if you must, but you can't afford NOT to go there.
