We loved absolutely everything. The accommodations, the setting, the amazing staff, the varied activities, and the fabulous weather. This has been a very cold winter in the Northeast USA, so to get warm for a week in such a splendid environment was just what the doctor ordered for each of us. We smiled from the moment we got off the plane in Dangriga until the time we boarded Maya Air a week later.
Prior to our visit to Hamanasi, our family had its ups and downs when trying to get everyone together. We usually have as many opinions as there are members of our family. I felt like the luckiest person alive when I discovered Hamanasi via an Internet search. I sensed immediately that it would appeal to each member of our family. When we returned to the States, my son in law, said it best. "I think this one may have become the gold standard for family vacations!"
We stayed in the beachfront rooms which were amazingly lovely. I prefer the 4 rooms on the upper floor because of the lovely balcony that faces the sea. These are quite close to the main building, but we never once were distracted by any noise.
A highlight for our visit was the morning fishing trip for our grandson. We ate his delicious fish for dinner. The staff prepared the fish in many different and interesting ways. And some of us took our first scuba lesson and are ready to go home and get licensed. Martin was a calm and very competent instructor.
Hamanasi is a jewel and it was a privilege to be able to stay here for a week.
