My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Isla Marisol, and overall, it was a wonderful trip. I'll start off with the reasons why Isla Marisol didn't get five stars from me. Initially when we got to our room, I'll admit it... I was a bit disappointed with the accommodations. I guess I was picturing something more glamorous. I didn't look at photos in advance... and neither did I think about how in the world would they be able to provide such luxury on an island?! Obviously AC was very limited, therefore, a bit tough at night when you're trying to sleep. I think it worked maybe half the time we were there. There were sting bugs ALL over the place which apparently migrated to the island, but eventually left after 3-4 days. In addition to sting bugs, I got a bit of sand flies and mosquito bites so don't forget your bug spray!
What I loved about Isla Marisol were the people, activities, and food! The staff was AMAZING. Let's start with diving... Mora, Tony, Seth, and Liv were an exceptional dive team. It was a bit hectic during our first dive since everyone was trying to fit their BC, wet suit, fins, goggles, etc. But, it was a lot more smooth and calm afterwards. Luis was the man when it came to snorkeling and fishing. He was super accommodating and professional. Tony, Ally, Tara, Orlando, and Albert were also awesome! And the food... Aunt Jenice and the cooking staff were incredible with their menu. I think we left heavier than we came!
Everyone was just so super and lovely... including the other guests we met on the island! We had such a grand time, and we hope to be back in the near future :)
