I stayed at the Blue Tang back in February and really loved it there. My friend and I are not divers. I enjoyed the pool everyday, and yes, there were umbrellas on the tables by the pool. There is also a little courtyard area next to the pool with benchs and hammucks under shade where you can read, nap or just people watch.
We stayed on the 3rd floor, room 11? I think. We had a deck, a partial view of the water and an interesting view of local life. We thought that was part of the fun. Watching folks get up in the AM... head to school... playing in the yard... that kind of thing.
The staff was very helpful and I liked that they had security on staff at night so it felt safe coming in late night. The walk into town was 2 minutes and it was very quiet. We NEVER had an issue with noise, even on Ladies Night. Beds and pillow were comfy and the room was pretty spacious. The only complaint (which we told the front desk) was that the tub seemed to need some extra support. I tended to sway a bit while showering.
I would stay there again in a second!
Enjoy! - Laura
