Blue Tang B Luxury Townhouse was beautifully decorated with local artifacts such as handpainted Mexican tiles, textiles and sculptures, so you felt immersed in the area. The rooms were spacious and all well equipped. The private decktop pool was a very special feature, the views, and the snorkeling right out the door were fabulous. I am an artist and could paint right from the deck in all directions. We saw so many fish ih such an amazing environment of calm water, and the sea turtles are not far away. Not everything was maintained in tip top shape, but that was no problem as it was part of the laid back, relaxing atmosphere. You felt a bit native, rather than in an over done, artifical resort. Restaurants were within walking distance. The owners and their employees were very friendly and responsive to any needs--including getting out flat tire fixed. We have the best memories and would love to go back. Have already been recommending it to friends.

The underwater view is incredible. The condo is very well equipped. Great for a big family. Pool on the roof is a great plus. Daily cleaning provided. Would definitely stay again.
