Seaislegal - thanks for mentioning the hair dryers! I always pack one and not only for my hair. It comes in handy for drying out hand washable stuff also.
I will be there the same time you and your group. Looks like it will be a solo trip, also hoping to stay at Banana Beach. Your description of rooms is very helpful.
I was there last May but only for a few days at the end of a long adventure and stayed at Steve & Becky's. Banana Beach sounds more to my liking.
Are you all divers? I, unfortunately, am not diving, but am looking forward to snorkeling and getting a better look at the island.
Only one more question...
Is it May yet?
