My husband and I spent a week at IslaMar and loved being away from the tourists and in a neighborhood. We could walk into 'town' and to many restaurants in our neighborhood. Nothing is really very far away. Because we wanted to see the east side of the island we rented a car which also enabled us to do a bit of grocery shopping. Having a motorcycle or moped would be fun, too, but my husband and I have never been on one of these together so we didn't. Not this time. IslaMar was perfect for us. Our sweet apartment was clean with plenty of space for us to spread out. We enjoyed having our own table and chairs on the patio just outside our door. We enjoyed having a pool for when we came home (often after half a day snorkeling) in the afternoons when it was still hot outside. Sherrie also has a great library of old DVDs so we got to see some favorites from long ago. She provides lots of helpful information upon arrival and was always available any time we had any questions or concerns. She was also ready to drive us to the ferry terminal early on a Sun morning until she learned that we were returning our rental car and that wasn't necessary. We'd stay here again!
