After I spent three days here with family & friends, I came home and spent a week researching all the Caribbean Islands for a place like this to relax and trust me, you won't find anything even close.
Why is this place so special?
Small hotel with 6+ rooms. You get your personal butler, room bar is very generously loaded with soft drinks, snacks, lot of Italian Spring water, and even beer and spirits. We didn't touch spirits but consumed everything else and they were filled each day and sometimes couple of times and no charges. Included breakfast includes unlimited choices from menu. Amazing coffee in the room. Room furniture and outdoor balcony settings uses eye pleasing modern high quality furniture and sheets.
You are feet away from water and your lounge chairs are set in complete shade. You have outdoor shower and faucet to rinse off your sandy feet. Your butlet is constantly filling your water jug and checking on your needs while you are relaxing on the beach. We ordered lot of food there and it was all very delicious and not the cheesy oily beach food you get elsewhere.
The beach itself is probably the best it can be anywhere. Crystal clear calm water, easy and good shore snorkeling and you even see turtles. Lot of boat tours come here to show turtles. Also, couple of motor boat tours drop by to check if you are interested.
Our kids and friends all had time of our life on this beach. I never think of going to same location again. But, this place deserves many visits and to me, it beat my previous best beach destinations like Tulum and West side beach at Roatan.
