Lonely Planet review

Palmetto Bay Plantation is an understated luxury resort hidden several kilometers down a dirt road, sharing a beautiful stretch of beach with hundreds of palm trees and not much else. The resort has 31 bungalows (with two to three bedrooms, one to two bathrooms), all with gorgeous hardwood floors, high-peaked ceilings, and spacious kitchens with gas ranges and full-size stainless steel refrigerators. An infinity pool, free kayaks, wireless internet, and airport pickup and drop-off are all included in the rates (which vary by season, number of guests, and category of lodging). The resort’s bar and restaurant (mains L$140 to L$400, open for lunch and dinner) is popular with guests and non-guests alike, with live music Friday and Saturday night. Reservations are recommended.
