We stayed in a kitchenette and the little extra money for the room was worth it. Our room was on the ground floor only steps from the beach. The Resort had free kayaks and a small fishing pier. Bring your snorking gear because you will see lobster and tropical fish everywhere. We loved this place and will definitely stay here... More

Although this was my first time staying at Lime Tree, it was a return visit for my companion. The sunsets were beautiful, but it was difficult to enjoy because of the smell of rotting seaweed. In the past the seaweed had been raked out so that guests could access the water without wading through muck. Our room was also less... More

Thank you for your review. The seaweed is something we cannot do anything about, and raking it we were told by the previous managers does not work. Happily it does not stay around long.
