[quote=@dh] Considering staying at the Villas Jibacoa early part of Jan. So many questions can anyone help?
Is there good snorkeling reef right off the beach?
I have previously read complaints about a rocky beach, does this mean rocks in the water so you need water shoes to get in?
Does the water get deep quickly or do you need to walk far before it gets deep?
Are the Jelly fish in such great numbers you can’t swim with out bumping in to one?
Do they serve the powered juice(like Tang), concentrated or real at the buffet and bars?
Any other relevant info for us to consider would be great.[/quote]
Yes, maybe, yes, sometimes, sometimes. ;D
Villas is a solid three star resort. If you want or need more amenities go to Breezes next door. The reef is very close to shore and can be accessed easily. There are places along the beach that have a sandy entry, and with care you wouldn’t need water shoes to swim. Jellyfish come and go, hard to predict. You might see none, you may be unlucky and see many. They sometimes serve something that would pass for Tang or equivalent, but I would say more often serve juice, not necessarily orange juice. Maybe guava or mango. Yum!
These pictures might give you an idea of the resort:
And the snorkelling:
