What a well thought out hidden gem!! Perfectly designed and decorated to the smallest detail. Great separation between the units, pools, hotub, outdoor sitting areas, it's as if you are the monkey sitting in the tree watching the beautiful water and sunsets. Food is amazing, breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!! From fresh lobster to margaritas on the rocks to die for....

Paradise defined is the best way to describe this gem. St. Barths, Cayman Islands have nothing on this resort. From the moment you arrive you decompress and only can relax! It's awesome to only live the water life. From diving, to water taxis and the beautiful pool. One of the best kept secrets that you'll want to know.

This restaurant just recently opened to the public not just hotel guests and it is delicious ! Setting is beatiful and luxurious and the food is outstanding. We received an appetizer gratis, seared tuna that was so good, and the meals were superb. Service great too. We had some very good meals on Roatan but this went above and beyond....

Mary Jo and Stafford I had such a wonderful time getting to spend some time with such kindred spirits and learning about all your travels. What an epic day we had; diving in a cave, swimming with dolphins in the wild, diving with a moray eel blind in one eye, eating lionfish in a thatched hut and as if that...

We stayed at this resort for one week. It is on the beach front with 2 private piers with lounges and hammocks. The suites are large, modern and attractively-decorated condominium-styled units. The two pools, bar, restaurant, small gym and lobby areas are inviting and spotless. Massage services are available in a new beach-front enclosed gazebo. We spent a cocktail hour...
