We spent a couple of weeks at Sundancer earlier this year. It is an absolutely beautiful spot with brilliant tropical gardens, mango and palm trees and is located right on a post card perfect Caribbean beach. The coral reef is just a little piece off shore, close enough to swim to, and the snorkeling was the best we have ever enjoyed. The people at Sundancer were friendly and very welcoming. Our cabana, while a rather rustic wooden building, was exactly as described and we really have no complaints about it.
In spite of all these tremendous positives, I could not recommend Sundancer to anyone. The stench from septic tanks was beyond anything we have ever experienced!!! There seems to be septic tanks all over Sundancer. . One was located close to the lane that leads to the road and it emitted a constant unpleasant smell. The truly terrible one was next to the Dive Shop. The stench from this one was not constant but rather came in waves. Because it is so hot there, you need to have the windows and doors open to catch a breeze. Unfortunately, more than once breezes brought in such strong fecal odours during breakfast and dinner that we were not sure we could hold down our meal. The stench also blew in during the night and was so fetid at times that it woke us up.
I have no idea why the septics are so bad at Sundancer, as we travelled all over the island and nowhere did we encounter similar septic problems. These septics are obviously not working properly and they are close to the sea, which leads to the question: Along with the horrific smell is there environmental damage?
