Pro: Clean, good food available at any time, safe area to snorkel, windsurf, kayak and learn how to use a hobie cat. The food was good and a pretty good variety. Service was friendly and helpful, the rooms were well cleaned and the waterfront (not really on the water, on the cliff above it) have a nice view.
Con: The water in the bay is usually a bit silty for snorkeling visibility, it is still good but just not good visibility.
Snorkel at Long bay out the front gate and 100 yds to the right.
Shirley's peak is a good trip.
There are boats you can take out from Long Bay snorkeling or to Stingray city or fishing. A couple of us went out fishing and caught alot of Jacks and snapper.
Items I heard were good but didn't get a chance to do ourselves:
We wanted to do the tour around the island on a boat but didn't take the time to go, it sounds like it was a good ride.
Zip lines, trap shooting and stingray city I heard were good.
I would go back again!
