Hobbies is a place to getaway from it all. The rooms are spacious, with A/C and it is so quiet day and night and we completely lost track of time. John and Sue provide snorkel gear and kayaks and there is a fun mangrove maze you can kayak to from the shore. The pier in front of Hobbies is a great place to layout under the sun or to jump into the water and swim out to the reef and explore under the water.
There aren't many businesses within walking distance so just know that you should plan on buying groceries to bring with you to Hobbies so you can make breakfast, lunch, snacks. We took a taxi over to West End for dinner one night, also walked a bit down the beach to Blue Parrot another night (don't miss the jerk shrimp!).
The rooms have full kitchens so go nuts when John takes you to Eldon's supermarket on the way home from the airport. And make sure to try the Port Royal beers. It's the best of the local lot!
