After booking the Elysian Beach Resort (June 9-13) and then reading all the negative reviews, I was sure it would be a bomb! But I was pleasantly surprised that the studio with King bed was rather large and clean. Floors were not sticky or dirty as some people suggested. It was nice to have the refrigerator, microwave and sink for those leftovers from the restaurants. The beach was clean, quiet and the water was exceptionally clear in spite of being near so many boats in Cowpet Bay. My only real complaint was the extremely loud air conditioner, like a plane taking off, so listening to the TV was a challenge.
We never had to scrounge for lounge chairs on the beach or clean beach towels at the front desk. The Caribbean Fish Market was a gem for the fresh fish and tasty meals. A bit expensive but well worth it. The Sangria Bar had good pizza, wings and breakfast. We snorkeled on the left side of the beach near the reef and rocks and it was amazing. There were many different kinds of fish, coral, starfish and spiny urchins. The only other beach that beat the snorkeling at Cowpet Bay was at Coki Beach. We rented a car for the four days we were there and we drove around to the different beaches and sites. We did the Sea Trek Adventure at Coral World Marine Park and that was a lot of fun. It isn't scuba diving, but then again we're not interested in scuba. Sapphire Beach was not good for snorkeling at all. We loved the peace and quiet of the resort so that made this place wonderful for us. It is not luxury just peaceful with white sand and clear turquoise waters.
