We have and will continue to stay at IslaMar Villas. After staying with Sherri for about eight years in a row, there is not another place we would rather be. We have stayed in various hotels over the years, but we love all the space, the huge king-size bed, being able to cook at home, having a refrigerator stocked with cold beer, spending an afternoon in the pool, having our bicycles in the bike rack right inside the door of the villas. The neighbors around IslaMar have become familiar faces, and although we don't speak Spanish, we are greeted every year with a wave and big smile. We can easily walk/bike for groceries and if we do want to go out for a meal, everything is close. Tacos at No Name Taco, pizza at No Name Pizza, tortas at El Hit, fish at San Carlos or a fancy meal at La Mission--all within walking distance (some of those being within 2-3 blocks from "home.") There is nowhere else we would consider a second home as we do Islamar.
