Brac Caribbean and Carib Sands Review
These neighboring, beachfront, sister complexes offer condos with one to four bedrooms, all individually owned and decorated beyond a "starter" design. The Brac Caribbean balconies overlook the sea; Carib Sands' overlook the water across the extensive pool area. The nattily nautical Captain's Table restaurant and poolside bar at Brac Caribbean is a popular hangout for locals and visitors alike. The Sands grounds are particularly pretty, with buttonwood and ficus "fences" and fragrant oleander bushes buzzing with butterflies. The units here tend to be more vivid though often weirdly configured. Many have nice touches such as French doors opening to the beach, hand-painted mirrors, and walk-in closets. Numbers 111 and 114 are particularly stylish digs with splendid views. The Brac Caribbean units (most are reserved for long-term rentals) feature a more flowing layout but more generic decor.
