Absolutely one of our best vacations ever. We couldn't have planned a better vacation for ourselves if we tried.
The accommodations were basic but very comfortable, pretty much perfect for island life. The island was nicely laid out but not over developed. Our cabin (Sumo) was very private from the other guests and the view was spectacular. The bed looked very basic but to our surprise it was more comfortable than the Biltmore Hotel. The food was nothing short of spectacular. We had to restrain ourselves from over eating the wonderful concoctions that the two sweet ladies cranked out of the kitchen. Don't worry though, there's enough activities that you can't gain weight on this trip!
The equipment was plentiful and the guides were fantastic. The guides were friendly, enthusiastic and genuine. The guides seemed to be at our beck and call without making us feel like a bother in any way. They truly were interested in ensuring we had a great time, were enthusiastic about all the different activities and were laid back about us hanging out and hammock surfing occassionally too. The guide to guest ratio couldn't be beat and there was always a variety of things going on if you wanted it.
Lastly, the guides were patient and persistent as they taught us new sports in a way that we could actually learn and get the hang of it.. My husband was windsurfing up a storm and I fell in love with kayak surfing.
Our one week on the island began to feel like longer as we started to forget about work and school that we left behind. Our trip was both relaxing and adventurous. If only we could have stayed longer. We will definately go back again!
