The six Mediterranean-style villas here were the tiny island's first taste of luxury, and it's still a lovely place, to a large extent because of its perch across sprawling lawns that overlook breathtaking ocean. The mood is plantation-style cozy, from the intimate, well-spaced guest rooms to the open-air lounge. Carambola's, the Inn's restaurant, was once the island's most sought-after reservation, but it has since been overshadowed by some keen competition in Isabel
II and Esperanza. Constantly changing management hasn't helped the property retain its popularity or return it to yesteryear's splendor.
