First of all, I will list the positives.
- Great location on beautiful crystal clear water. Shore snorkeling, access to kayaks, beach chairs and a lot of sun!
- The Dive Shop was very helpful and we got certified on our trip. The staff was very patient with us and really made sure that we were comfortable in the water. My wife and I both got certified and continued to dive the entire 9 day trip.
- The breakfast is included in the hotel price. Only one option, but they do a great job of mixing it up throughout the week.
- Good daily drinks specials (same as other hotels in area though).
Next are the Negatives
- We stayed in a beach cabana. We have traveled extensively in South and Central America, and his was by far the worst room we have stayed in. The AC stopped several times throughout the nights, due to the fact that the back-up generator never worked. Also, we were infiltrated with Tropical cockroaches. Not just one or two, but at least 15 in a 5 day span.
- Got busy on cruise days, but we planned our trip around those days. We stayed in West Bay for our first 5 days, and moved to West End for the latter part of our trip. West End is less busy on cruise days.
