My wife and I stayed here for a few days on our first trip to the island. It is definitely one of the better resorts. It is kept very clean and tidy. The private pools and beach helped make this special as you didn't have to deal with cruise ship tourists. Security was also very good. The views......WOW. The breakfasts...

This hotel was the perfect location for our group of four. We decided not to rent a car and had no problem visiting the fun locations within walking distance. Luckily this hotel has free shuttles to both the supermarket and downtown into Punda. Just be sure to sign up ahead of time at the front office to reserve your spot!...

Went about a week into the new year. It's a smaller hotel that is almost on its own little island with views of the Ocean and Sea. Very peaceful.

I chose this hotel because you are right where all the action is, next to lively Mambo Beach and the Mambo Beach Blvd shopping/dining/entertainment area. Also you get free admission every day, and multiple times a day if you want, to the Sea Aquarium. The hotel staff treats you like family, always having smiling faces and eager to help you...

Quiet place, very clean and comfortable. Pretty views, amazing sunsets! Staff is more than helpful! Snorkeling right from the beach but we rented a car and visited many beautiful beaches and snorkelled them all! We traded through Interval to get this resort and got lucky to go there! Would love to return one day!
