We stayed in the Sunset cottage from 5/1-5/6, and had a incredible time. This is a place to relax, rejuvenate and just be with nature. You need to do your research before going...yes there are mosquitos, take bug spray. I had just made up my mind that I would be covered in sunscreen and bug spray during my stay. This island is somewhat remote, so don't expect to find everything you want in the grocery store, get your supplies on Provo. The IGA is very well stocked. Sunset actually has 2 small refrigerators so you have plenty of room.
The beach at Blue Horizon is a magical place, the beauty will take your breath away. We did visit the other beaches, Mad Cow is a challenge to find but worth it. Although after seeing the beach at the resort, I think it was the best on the island. We rented a Jeep, and it was definitely worth the cost. There was very little traffic, so driving on the left was not an issue either. Although I have to admit I didn't always do it correctly. (helps to have a couple with you from England in the car)
We met great people at the resort (Hi, Richard, Rob and Christine!) and ate dinner together every night. I couldn't have planned a better group of people to be with on this trip, we were very lucky to meet such interesting and nice people.
Susan and her staff were fantastic! My experience was that everyone on the island was very friendly. It is also a safe place, I felt comfortable everywhere we went even when I was by myself.
If you do your research, this trip will exceed your expectations. If you do not, then you may be disappointed. If you are looking for nightlife, this would not be the place for you.
I have not been anywhere that has healed my soul as much as Blue Horizon. If you see a black cat with gold eyes (Anthony), take a minute to pet him. He loves the attention. Domino is a sweet dog, and I personally loved having animals around. It helped us not miss our dog so much. Although I never did get to meet Sam, Susan's cat.
I absolutely loved this trip!! Thank you Susan!!
