We loved this resort for many reasons but my favorite aspect of this vacation was that you could do as much or as little as you want here. Our mornings were action packed with kayaking mangroves, jumping...

The accommodations were perfect , the service was excellent and the food was wonderful. We did not want for anything. This is a quiet , relaxing resort that gave...

Small Hope and it's super friendly staff were amazing! Our stay there felt personal and it was hard to say good bye to all of our new friends. The staff was very social and knowledgeable. From the view, to the staff, to the activities...it all exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to go back!

Thanks very much for that wonderful review. I think you described Small Hope perfectly. No TVs, clocks, or phones in the cabins really allow our guests to truly disconnect - a phenomenon that is increasingly rare! Add that to beach front cabins, great food, a beautiful natural setting, and wonderful atmosphere, and voila! I am so happy you had a...
