Mustique -- not so great

Jump to last reply

We just got back from a week in Mustique, and came away unimpressed.

The things we like in an island are natural beauty, snorkelling and friendly people. We could care less about nightlife and shopping anywhere we go.

That said, Mustique was pretty, but the snorkeling and beaches were sub-par. One side of the island the beaches were too rough to swim (and definitely too rough to snorkel), and the other side had so-so snorkeling and rocky shorelines, even the beaches were very rocky.

I'm not saying it wasn't nice. It was. But it wasn't worth the hype or the price. The villa we stayed in was $13,000 per week and felt like one that would cost $5,000 on any other island.

The Villa staff were friendly as were most people we encountered (not many as it seems that most of the "rich & famous" that all of the books hype either stay in their villas, or weren't on the island).

We probably won't go back because it's overpriced (IMHO) for what's there.

Just an opinion -- no head-biting please! :)
