Villas at Banyan Bay Review

If you enjoy little luxuries like a whirlpool bath in your room, this red tile–roofed complex about 1½ mi (2½ km) south of town may suit you splendidly. You won't feel cramped here—stylishly furnished two-bedroom condos with verandas overlooking the sea have cathedral ceilings with tropical hardwoods. The kid-friendly pool is one of the island's largest, and Mar de Tumbo tops the short list of the island's best beaches. The on-site restaurant, Rico's Bar & Grill, has one of the island's most beautiful seaside restaurant settings. Sadly, several years of management by hired hands from a bank that foreclosed on the property has had an impact, but the property is still a enjoyable place to stay.
