We did our research online and asked some friends who had been to the island before. This seemd like the best option since they also had 2-bedroom studioos available. We had studio nr 6, which is brand new. Nice modern look and feel, and very complete inventory everything you will need in the kitchen and more. Large fridge with icemaker, nice veranda. The kids loved the pooll grounds are beatifully maintained. And what a view...we saw several sunsets ( see attached) the one even more beatiful than the other. Staff id very helpful, providing maps and advice. We will definitively come back sometime. For the runners: a very nice 10km run is 4x around dering harbor village, following the costline.
