Manicou River Resort is one of the best choices for the value minded traveler interested in a natural setting just a stone's throw from Portsmouth and a short drive from the best beach's on the Island. You can find more luxury for five times the cost but you will not find another resort in this setting at this price. The owner's bent over backwards to see that our needs were accommodated. While on the west coast overlooking the breathtakingly gorgeous Cabrits park and Caribbean coast ,which offers swimming/snorkeling, you're just an hour drive from the beautiful black and white sand beach's along the east coast road to Calibishie, a must-do day trip if you're in the area. Another 15-20 minutes will take you into pristine rainforest , and from here it's less than an hour to the Carib territory , another great day trip from the resort.
The owner's have lived on the Island for some time and were were very knowledgeable about the local culture and interesting things to do as well as the caveats that go along with any third world travel. If you're looking for a quite , reasonably priced resort, immersed in nature, not far from a number of top spots to visit, with kind and responsive service then Manicou River is well worth a week or two or even more if you have the time.
