This was our second visit to Villa Del Mar. We felt in love with Grace Bay and believe that Villa Del Mar is one of the best value out there. Yes the resort is not a beach front property but we've stayed in beach front properties in which our condo unit was further away from the beach than Villa Del Mar. You are literally a short 2 minute walk to one of this world finest beach. Note that beach chairs and towels are provided free of charge by VDM as they have their own section on the beach. Lots of restaurants at a walking distance. No need for a rental car unless you want to explore the island. Have lunch at Sea Side next door or Pelican Bay at Royal West Indies. Very affordable and delicious food. The IGA Gourmet supermarket is just a 10-15 minute walk away.
The only drawback is that if you are planning to spend some time beside the pool you hear trucks and cars passing by all day long. For some reason locals always honk when passing in front of VDM. This is really annoying. A simple way to remediate this would be for Management to put up a sign on the road that would say please don't honk or quiet area..
Taxi trip from the airport is $35 for 2 persons. Don't hesitate to book you won't regret it.More
