Attractions and Activities
Orange Hill Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner but only for certain hours and they are closed Wednesday and Sunday night. However, there are plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from for those specific nights. The resort also is home to The Honor Bar. The bar opens at 5pm, but the bartender doesn’t start till 6pm, so until then, you are on the honor system. As for activities, you can swim in the pool or enjoy a lounge chair. The beach across the street from Orange Hill Inn is a favorite site of locals and has no vendors. You can also walk to a cave to see some fruit bats. They do a grocery run about once a day and you can join the resort staff for a ride if you wish. Washing machines are onsite, but why wash when sand is like a free souvenir?
