Once again The Drake has lived up to the excellent standard we received in 2016, 2017 & now again in 2018. After spending another 15 nights-this time in the brand new apartments we have HAD to book to return in 2019. The new beautiful, secure, air conditioned apartments are magnificent, neat, clean & airy, from the modern design to the lovely kitchen which is so well equipped & with a washing machine, to the extremely comfy twin beds, which we pushed together & didn't realize there was a join, to the dreamy pillows. The lovely bathroom has such a spacious shower & plenty of hot water. We also loved the convenience of having the outside shower specially after a day of snorkeling. WiFi is no problem in the apartment & the TV has a good selection of international channels. Also great having so many plug points. We loved the spaciousness of the veranda for relaxing. There are private steps down to a lovely beach which has offered us the best snorkeling we have had on the island(last year we saw a turtle)plus there are the kayaks for added fun. The sea view gazebo is a must for sun downers. We cannot express how key The Drake's location is from having a well stocked store a few steps away to more shops, money exchange, hotels & casino 15 mins walk into Beau Vallon. The Beau Vallon market on a Wednesday night is a must for tourists. A big plus is having the bus stop 1 minute from the apartment with a great regular bus service. The owner's of The Drake are fantastic, friendly, kind hosts & are so helpful and they kindly include a breakfast starter pack for your first mornings breakfast. Danielle, Spencer & the boys, Thank you for always making our holiday special and "We will be back" in 2019.
