The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was everything we were after, right on the water, beautiful views and close to town. The restaurant had good food and good drinks. The rooms were small, cramped and stuffy, but we weren't in there much with so much to do here. We took advantage of the free use of kayaks and bicycles while here and enjoyed it very much. For the price, it was a good value.
Prior to our trip I had several emails back and forth with staff regarding a private day sail/snorkel for our family, which they confirmed each time. When we arrived, we were sad to hear that "Jeff" (owner of the sailboat) had left without relaying the information. We ended up on a cramped boat with 12 snorkelers and 5 divers. We went to Silk Cay which is a small island with a lot of other tourist boats all trying to have lunch and snorkel. We were dropped off while they tended to the divers. They went to a 2nd location only giving the snorkelers 5 minutes to swim with turtles. This was not the trip we were expecting at all and wish we had not wasted our day or money ($75 US each) on it. Other than that everything was good.
