Fodor's Expert Review Sea Spray Resort and Marina
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Consider this resort if you're planning to catch any waves, or you just want to get away from it all. The accommodations are just off Garbanzo Beach, which is popular with surfers. One-, two-, and three-bedroom villas have full kitchens, satellite TVs, Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and large decks with outdoor grills. You can rent snorkeling gear here, and the on-site store sells everything from charcoal to surfboard wax. There are also a 60-slip full-service marina, swimming pool with ample deck chairs for catching rays, and a swinging bar that rocks at happy hour and after dinner. The bar also has a wide-screen TV for taking in sporting events, and restaurant where you can enjoy the ocean view while feasting on steamed lobster or grilled, freshly caught grouper. A second indoors restaurant serves sushi. Free shuttle service is available to Hope Town, about a 10-minute drive.
