Anyone who is familiar with my posts, knows that personally, *I* prefer to be closer to town. That is my OWN preference. (Chris seems to think that is my preference because I don't like to walk. He's totally out to lunch on that. I dive all day and dance all night, when I'm not walking around SP. Sleep is what I don't get much of.)
That said, there are still some resorts to the north and to the south, that I find quite desirable and were I to change my preferences in that regard . . .then amongst some other fine resorts, I would also encourage anyone, ANYONE, to stay at Caribe. Very nice pool and pool surrounds, awesome beach, lovely staff and mellow atmosphere.
