Banana Beach is the place to stay. Second floor ocean front is the best. Go for it, you will be happy you did. cool smile

I have stayed at the Mayan Princess two times. 3rd floor. Love the balconies and the fact it is IN town. I like to watch people and the beach can be busy with people and children. Just my preference. Yours could be different.

I love to stay at the Palms, bottom floor condo, right on the beach. When I walk through that door it feels like coming home to me. We crank up the music, laugh, dance, snack and drink Belikin and One Barrell ALL DAY LONG.

Ana, Melinda and all the staff are SO nice and helpful.

Perfect setting. love it, love it, love it.

I have stayed at Mayan Princess, The Palms and Banana Beach, they are all great places, Mayan princess is in town,nice staff but can be a bit noisey, they don't have a pool, but watching the sea from their balconies is great, The Palms is lovely, pricier than the rest, quite,nice staff and the pool is great, Banana Beach is out of town but not too far, bike rideing distance or taxi about $10.00 bz, or a nice beach walk to town, they have a great resurant, and the staff they is terriffic, my son's favourite spot,

Banana Beach is hard to beat. Great food and the breakfast is included, nice beach area with both sunny and shaded areas the pool area is nice and the rooms are great, with a kitchen living room and sep. bedroom. Mata Rocks is also nice mext door, somewhat smaller rooms with a nice beach bar and smaller but nice pool. john in denver

The Palms offer the nicest suites from your selection.

Banana Beach offers the best value.

Both have access to the two best beaches on the Island, #1 Mar de Tumbo (Banana Beach) and #2 Ramon's (The Palms).
