  • Gros dépaysement le temps d'une journée ! Plages paradisiaques et mer turquoise et transparente ! Petit conseil: profitez de la navette gratuite pour accéder à Paradise Beach et à la piscine de l'Hilton (vaut le détour) et prenez ensuite un petit cart de golf pour faire le tour de l'île (ne le louer que 2-3h plutôt que toute la journée), voir le centre-ville et découvrir les autres plages. Petit bémol: la douane au retour aux US. Préparez vous pour sortir au plus vite du bateau et être dans les premiers à l'arrivée afin de limiter l'attente.

  • C'était sublime!! nous avons mangé à l'hôtel Hilton le midi et le repas était très bon, le prix reste résorbable. La plage est très belle et le temps sur place parfait. Le seul bémol est l'arrivée très tôt au port (6h30) pour embarquer qu'a 8h30. Nous aurions pu être pris en charge plus tardivement pour éviter cette attente, mais mis à part cela tout est nickel.
