Lodgings are small and intimate, and guests are often treated like family, congregating in the lobby or bar to swap stories, tall or otherwise, of their exploits. There are only a few full-service resorts, two of them condo complexes. There are also a couple of cozy guesthouses and several private villas (usually second homes for snowbirds) for rent throughout the island. In November 2008, Hurricane Paloma wiped out most of the island's larger properties. All have been rebuilt, in some cases from the ground up.
