I met some folks who were staying there and they had a lot of mosquito problems. Also, I don't think there is air conditioning if that is an issue for you. They ended up moving closer to town. Of course, this is 2nd hand info.--nat
The mosquito problem is abound on the northern part of the island, unless of course the hotel sprays for them. Many resorts will tell their guests that they spray very early in the morning before they awaken. I would be careful of such places. Personally I would stay either in town or closer to town where the town sprays on a regular basis.
The cabanas at Journey's End are air conditioned... both oceanview and pool/garden cabanas.
denny, i know who you are and its nice for you to write after leaving there. do they spray at JE? i bet you know the answer! it is the first i'm hearing of mosquitos there. i want to stay this august and have to reserve now. wish someone had told me sooner....
Tropica Beach Resort has a restaurant and bar and pool. They are supposed to have a dive shop now. But if they do not, they do have a pier/dock and dive shops will pick you up by boat there. It was very easy. Nice place and it is about a mile or so south of town.
Yes....Tropica is a nice little place and they do now have a dive shop. I believe Grant that used to be with Amigos Del Mar is running it....and if so.....it should be top notch. They have a nice beach area and a pool. I can smell their breakfast cooking when I pass by on my way to work......yummmm! They are reasonable on prices also.
JaneinPA Jane, We spent a week at Journeys End and really enjoyed it. At that time they only had the JE restaurant. Now there is a great restaurant next door which gives you a choice without going all the way into town.
