While I have never stayed at the Hideaway, I've visited it a few times and did not find it particularly depressing in any way. I like Banana Beach-it is on the quiet side, is very well managed and has gorgeous suites, pool, views, etc. Great prices too, and its in a great little neighborhood with a tienda and inexpensive eating places.

Banana Beach will give you monthly rates as well. Contact them directly. Pricier than Hideaway but much nicer accommodations.

Believe Tim at Banana Beach said he was charging US$900 a month without utilities and US$1300 a month with utilities. That's for a spanking new one-bedroom suite with kitchen, fully furnished. Not cheap but at around US$42 a day including utilities it isn't bad for a short-term rental on a resort island.

What a great message board - we are long-time readers but new posters. We find web sites and message boards invaluable when planning excursions and this is one of the best thanks to the multiple input. And it's so nice for people to swap their preferences maturely - we all have our "druthers."

I wanted to add thoughts on Caribbean Villas. Our trips over the years have been built around tropical settings including the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hawaiian Islands, south Pacific islands and far eastern seashores. San Pedro is the destination we have most frequented for its beauty, people and size. And yes, we have had accomodations that were newer and more upscale than Caribbean Villas for the same price range, but we've never had a better total experience anywhere than Caribbean Villas. This small resort has a long standing staff that give personal attention and seem to really enjoy their vacationers; the owners live on the property and take care of their vacationers along with the staff; this is the last property we've seen in or near San Pedro Town not built to fill all the available land, it must be over an acre that is left wooded with flowering plants and birds and wildlife; the pier, hammocks, grills, hot tubs, bikes, tour bookings all help us have a rounded vacation. No place is for everybody, but we love it there. If you read this board and have never been to San Pedro, try it - the people and the sea will captivate you! Thanks again to all you posters here.

I've stayed at Mayan Princess a couple of times. It's a good place and an excellent value. It's one of the older condos on the island, but well-maintained and well-run. The location couldn't be more convenient, right in the middle of Front Street. The units have a nice tropical feel, with great views of the water. It does not have a pool, though.

Jesus I agree with Lan.This is the place I would stay as the condos are huge studios which are really well designed(bedroom,kitchen,sittingroom,balcony,sea).No pool but if you buy drinks at Ramons you can use theirs.

I am also looking for a nice place to stay for 4/5 nights in late Feb. I have heard good things about the Journey's End, but also about some others North of the town. Is it bad being so far away from the San Pedro Town? Does anyone have any recomms either on the Journey's End hotel or others? Much appreciated....

Sgoldsmi, Depends on several needs...
Single or with family? If your looking for a total get away the north side might be cool. You will be hampered timewise on the north side due to the hand ferry that gets you to town. The good news up there is NO CABS or CARS to run you over.

As a single guy I prefer staying close to town so I can hang out late if I want. I also like being able to walk to several places to eat...
Up north I highly suggest you budget in a Golf Cart to get around unless you plan to hang out at your hotel.($65 US a day I think) Or you can ride a bike(Which is what I do).
The dive shops will pick you up at JE so thats not an issue.
Anywhere you stay in AC is paradise as far as I'm concerned.

Life May Be a Beach...I prefer Reefs...
