Cayo Largo - still "paradise"?

Is this island destination still a "small slice of paradise"? I went there in the late 1990's - stayed two weeks, and really wished it had been a much longer stay.

I truly-enjoyed the beauty and wonderful "naturalness" of the place, especially the beaches -- wow, just miles and miles of white sand and blue waters!! I walked for miles, swam, watched iguanas, and just generally relaxed in the sun absorbing it all. It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen.

Has anyone been there lately? I know a major hurricane took it's toll on the island after that stay of mine, knocking down the hotel that was my favourite spot (to eat and beach) during my stay. And another hotel was built just beyond that location (construction had only just started when I was there). I actually hope there hasn't been any more construction (or very little) - would definitely hate to see the beaches fully-lined with hotels. The real beauty for me was, that that was not the case back then - so much natural/undeveloped beach was available, to use and enjoy away from all the resort-type "goings-on" (noise of activities, music, and all).

Would enjoy and much-appreciate hearing of any travels others have made to this little "piece of paradise" off the southwest coast.
Cheers ….. John
