Second visit even better! A review of Shoal Bay Villas
This was our second trip to Shoal Bay Villas. This time we stayed in a beachfront room on the second floor. Spent lots of time on our balcony, enjoying the breathaking views. You can't get more "beachfront" than this hotel.
Full kitchen with everything you could need (microwave, blender, bottled water provided daily). Comfortable beds. Beach towels and bug spray also provided.
They've made some changes since our last visit. Bathrooms have been updated with nice ceramics.Pool area has been re-tiled and is much improved. The staff, thankfully, is the same. A great group there.
Ku (next door) has a new beachfront bar/restaurant and there are plenty of other places within walking distance. To get to all of the great restaurants on the island (many of which are on the west end) I recommend renting a car. Shoal Bay East has gotten busier, but is still a wonderful spot. White sand and decent snorkeling right outfront the hotel. There's a watersports rental place next door.
We can't wait to go back.
