"Beautiful reef for snorkeling right off the beach!"
We had a glorious stay at the Windsong Resort. The staff was so pleasant; they're so proud of their island and love sharing information about it with guests. Our room was beautiful with marble floors and a large, high bed with cozy thick covers. Dark, cool and quiet at night - great for deep sleeping. The restaurant on site, JoJo's Cafe, is great for breakfast and lunch, but not as good for dinner. However, there are several great restaurants just steps down the beach, which is very safe for walking at night. We recommend Mango Reef at the Alexandra Hotel and Somewhere at Coastal Gardens. The hotel staff also recommended a newly-opened restaurant, The Caravel, that was excellent and only a short cab ride away. The food was fresh and local, the service was gracious, and the garden setting for dining was very romantic and private. There's great snorkeling right off the beach, and there are lots of "toys" available for guests: snorkeling equipment, kayaks, paddle boards, a small catamaran, and various floating apparatus. When we expressed interest in a seeing the island from the water, they set us up with an eco-tour/snorkeling excursion that was a blast. One of the crew dove for conch and brought up a bunch of large, colorful specimens. He showed us how they remove the meat and afterward while the guests were exploring Iguana Island (yes, lots of native iguanas) he and his mate up a lunch of conch salad. Scrumptious! And we got to bring home a conch shell for a souvenir.
