Has anyone been/seen the new expansion at
Banana Beach? Tim said they were putting on
the final touches when we booked our 20th anniversary. Also they were to include a new
restaurant, and has anyone tried it? Any info
would be appreciated. Thanx

I was just there a couple of weeks ago and stayed in the hotel part of the property. It's very nice. There are two pools now and the entance looks new to me. This was my first time there so I don't know what it looked like before (except for what I saw on the internet). The resaurant is not open, but if you email Tim, I'm sure he'll give you an update. He's very good about answering emails.

Nate & Barb,

Thank you so much for the photos! Banana Beach looks even better than the web site! I only wish we didn't have to wait until June to go!

I have one question, from the photos of the beach area there dosen't seem to be very many people, is it really that un-crowded? We've only been out of the States once, to St. Thomas, and though we loved it there, the beach was always crowded with many tourists.

We are planning 15 days in AC and are looking forward to the laid-back atmosphere and meeting the wonderful locals that we've read about on this board.

10 months and counting....
Thanks again.
David & Jody
