Spent last week at Villa Joya with another couple and the place was only exceeded by the local help provided by Kevin and John. The condo had all the amenities and was beautifully appointed, own private beach, nice splash pool, and a short walk to restaurants and West Bay. Met Kevin and John on arrival and they were extremely helpful, John would stop each morning to see if all was well. Very clean place and lots of room inside and on the deck and beach.
Beautiful weather the first 5 days, then came a "norther' with high winds and heavy rains which shut down the airport on Saturday, no planes in and no planes out. Both Kevin, John, and our driver Jensen came to the rescue at the airport and took great care of us until our plance could finally leave late on Sunday.
Enjoyed Jensen's day long island tour with a fantastic lunch at 'La Serena' on the eastern tip of the island. Picked our own lobster and fish lunch from local fisherman which was prepared quickly.
Limited need for a car, since water and car taxis were readily available. Great snorkeling offshore of the condo, but watch out for boat traffic. Best snorkeling is at the far end of West Bay. No problems dining at Beachers, Los Rochas, Fosters or Thirsty Turtle.
Linda Kay was very helpful with booking and provided the answers to many questions before we arrived. Already thinking about next year there.
