Recent Caribbean reviews

  • Afraid to write this

    "Just 48 hours ago I was sitting on the balcony of Bellevue (ViNiBu) and I can still here the ocean breaking on the beach. I'm hesitant to write this because it will be a rave review and I'm afraid I will create competition for when we want to go back! If you read through all of these reviews you will immediately know that this building and this particular unit, are special and unique. I won't re-hash all the good things previously stated only to say: believe them, they are all true. The unit is clean, comfortable, pleasantly decorated, and fully functional - even a great blender for afternoon frozen beverages! The location is magnificent and boasts one of the few sandy beaches in the area. During the day and evening, with the balcony door and back door open (screens), the breeze flows through and keeps everything very comfortable. We only ran AC to sleep at night. The house reef was as pretty as any dive or snorkel that we did. The location on the Island is ideal. Belmar Dive shop, a few doors down and affiliated with Buddy Dive, is awesome and will help with everything. If this is your first visit to Bonaire I suggest buying the guide book that they sell "Shore Diving Bonaire Made Easy". Written by a local author, this book is perfect whether you are diving or snorkeling. We have visited many places in the caribbean but none are quite like this. In short, ViNiBu is a great condo, in a great location on a great island. Now, just don't try to book it when I want it!!!!"

  • Great condo!

    "We spent the month at Jose's condo and loved every minute being there. We were close to everything and enjoyed the Balneario atmosphere. The condo was very nice. The bed was very comfy. The few minor issues the apt, had were dealt with very fast from the owner. Would love to come back again, but it is already rented next year at the time we come back!"

  • They aim to please

    "The VERY warm welcome we received set the pace for an enjoyable time at Serendipity. The only thing missing at the welcome was singing some Jamaican folk songs & dancing (smile). Ms. Ruby (cook) & Garnett (butler) (we were in closer contact with these 2 staff members) were easy to talk to and make our wishes known. They accommodated us easily, so we did not feel as if we were imposing. All the staff members were efficient, and seemed to work well together which gave the place a very relaxed air. The food was well prepared, tasty & nicely served. The children in our party were introduced to various new fruits & thoroughly enjoyed the pool every free minute. Apart from a little snag on our arrival ( the driver of our van didn't see us & we couldn't find him) our driver was informative-snippits of folklore-and available to suit our schedule. We, the adults loved the view of the sea from our dining area on the patio. Only 1 out of 3 children lamented when she saw how many mosquito bites she had->15. Overall a very enjoyable & relaxing time spent! The property manager easily answered our questions & gave us clarifications."

  • Marvelous!!!

    "My family and I absolutely fell in love with Bella Mare and St. Maarten. The condo is wonderful and very safe. It is also convienent. There are many restaurants and shops close by and the view is amazing. One of my favorite parts of the trip was to wake up and go outside on the lanai and have breakfast while listening to the waves. The sunset at night is so relaxing. The condo is well-equipped and very roomy. My husband is disabled and appreciated the single story accommodations. Would highly recommend this villa!!! We can't wait to come back!"

Caribbean Travel Tips

The Caribbean Sea and its islands are full of splendor and magic. Also known as the West Indies, the Caribbean has long been a popular destination for honeymooners as well as retirees looking for a getaway. There’s almost always good weather in the Caribbean, and its close proximity to the U.S. makes it an affordable and easy place to visit.

The Caribbean At a glance

Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are surrounded by coral reefs and the bluest of waters. There are three islands to choose from, which are full of marine life. Not only can you swim with stingrays, but you can go diving with the most colorful fish that you’d only imagine existed in your dreams. The white sand beaches are postcard-perfect and include Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point and Point of Sand. Here, you can enjoy isolated lands and even pink sand at Point of Sand. If you want, you can choose from more than 200 scuba diving sites or hit the pier for a day of fishing. Looking for things to do outside of sitting on the beach all day? Take a tour of George Town, the capital city of the islands. You can also visit the Cayman Islands National Museum and learn more about the country’s culture. After a day full of fun, grab a meal at a local eatery and enjoy freshly caught fish or sit down for a sophisticated meal at an upscale restaurant. You can get a real taste of island cuisine with a bowl of conch chowder, which is a tomato-based soup comprised of sweet peppers, onions and salt pork or bacon.

Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is one of the Caribbean’s most industrialized nations, and is also one of the most crowded due to tourists visiting the islands. You’ll find Hindustanis, Javanese, Lebanese, Africans and Creoles in Trinidad, while Tobago is more quiet and unspoiled. You haven’t done anything in Trinidad and Tobago until you’ve visited Maracas Bay and Turtle Beach. The beach didn’t get its name out of the blue, sunbathers enjoy sharing the sand with giant leatherback turtles and Maracas Bay offers clear waters near the capital.

Puerto Rico

Despite its smaller size, Puerto Rico is full of life and beauty. There are 4 million people that call the island home, and they are more than welcoming to visitors. You’ll find so much to do in Puerto Rico, including mountain hiking, a trip into rainforests and plenty of sun on its white sandy beaches. Since the island’s history dates back 500 years when it was still under Spanish rule, there’s plenty of history and museums to take in. In San Juan, you can visit three world-class museums before heading out for a night of shopping, dining and nightlife. Restaurants are plentiful in Puerto Rico, where you can enjoy stuffed crabs and chip-chip, a dish of clam-like shellfish with vegetables or ground meat. You should also try the fresh rum punch, which is flavored with locally produced Angostura Bitters.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has the pleasure of enjoying a year-round summer. There are white beaches, crystal clear waters and Spanish colonial history that dates back 500 years. With a visit here, you may find yourself hanging out with locals and backpackers from small fishing villages. The most popular destination in the Dominican is Punta Cana, where you can enjoy a plethora of sunshine. If you want to go for a dive, head to Bayahibe for a great view of shipwrecks just beneath the water’s surface. You’ll find some of the world’s finest cigars in the region near Santiago, as well as a good bottle of rum. Harrison’s in Puerto Plata has jewelry, and there are plenty of art galleries in Altos de Chavon. Grab a seat at Santo Domingo for fresh rock lobster or braised red snapper, or head to Puerto Plata for all the crayfish and grilled shrimp kabobs your stomach can handle.

Jamaica

There's more to Jamaica than just reggae and Rastafarians. It’s full of white sandy beaches and year-round sunshine, mountains, rainforest and coffee, as well as friendly locals. Of course, there’s diving and snorkelling that will take your through coral reefs, garden grottoes and drop-offs. You can even go for a leisurely swim at Doctor’s Cave Beach or overlook Montego Bay on the hilltop at Rose Hall Great House. Don’t leave the island without a package of Blue Mountain coffee or Jamaican rum. Visitors can find colorful artwork at the Contemporary Art Centre in Kingston or head to the Craft Market in Negril for handmade items. There’s also the Things Jamaican outlet with several locations throughout the island, including Montego Bay and Harmony Hall.
