Sundiver Beach Resort up north does have a restaurant, I assume. Haven't seen anything on this forum about it. So how does it rate with those in the know.

Interesting question, Teach. Sundiver Beach Resort no longer exists and hasn't for a couple of years or more. When the resort was fairly new, they had a great restaurant for a short period of time. I can't remember what became of the couple that was running it, at that time.

Well, when I say it no longer exists, I mean that is has new owner/operatorship and is running under a new name. The name I know but seems to have escaped me at the moment. Ask Wiele. smile

Us Teach's get up early too. Already fixed breakfast and doen the morning ritual. Unfortunately an afternoon nap isn't on the schedule - although that does sound like a great idea. Nap outside lying on the beach in the wonderful sunshine. You can't beat that. Actually that retired stuff sounds great too. So do you spend most of your retired time in Texas or AC? cool

Texas. I visit the island 4-5 times a year, just not this time of year. I probably wont return until Feb.

Re: Sundiver Beach Resort restaurant - 08/08/08 02:37 PM

So we are looking at visiting either early November or early February? Which is best?

Re: Sundiver Beach Resort restaurant - 08/08/08 02:40 PM

They are both good. Nov is a little less crowded, Feb is fantastic (jmho)

Re: Sundiver Beach Resort restaurant - 08/08/08 04:38 PM

i can't believe i'm saying this, but i agree w ernie.

both times are nice - BUT Feb is high season and many lodgings will be priced higher, and lobster season closes Feb 15. (meaning, after feb 15th, you cannot get lobster except at places with permission - at increased pricing).

Re: Sundiver Beach Resort restaurant - 08/08/08 05:17 PM

everyone has their own preference, I like November as the crowds are considerably less plentiful. I believe it is technically still hurricane season and you could possibly run into some bad weather. It does get more crowded closer to Thanksgiving and prices tend to rise. Lobster season runs from June through Feb 14, so no matter what time you are there in Nov it's Lobster Season! Truth is, especially if it is your first trip, you will have a great time no matter when you go!

Back to the original question....... the beach bar and restaurant at Mata Grande Resort are not presently open.
Wish they were - it's one of the sweetest locations on the island!

I noticed that Rojo just started a take-out service which could mean something cool for folks staying in the area .......
and Mata Grande Grocery has the usual necessities for hungry travelers - chips, beer, salsa, cheese, tortillas and frozen meats.
