Culture / Sightseeing

This was a beautiful resort, with lots of rooms on the ground floor for people with mobility issues such as myself. The beach was literally at the end of the resort, and it was absolutely wonderful to step into the warm sea.

There were several restaurants on site, catering for all tastes, though not much if you are vegetarian.

The staff were friendly and efficient, and would go out of their way to help you if like me you had mobility issues.

However on the negative side, my travelling companion had a blister on her foot, we went to the shop on site and asked if they sold plasters; the shop assistant replied yes and took out box of plasters; we asked how much it was, and were told $1, which we thought was OK; however, when we said that is fine, she took out just a single plaster! If you wanted a paracetamol they were $1 per pill (at home you can buy these for around 32p for 20), and should you need Ibuprophen it was $2 per pill!

I felt that the resort really took advantage of the guests, and fleeced them for as much as they could get away with.

We also signed up for a trip to see 2 churches a museum and a market: one church was being done up, so we could not see that, and the museum (which I had been looking forward to learning about the history of the Island) was only about the Pope’s visit. And the market consisted of one shop that charged the same prices as the shop at the hotel!

If you are looking for a break where you can laze by the pool, and enjoy the onsite entertainment, then it is a great place, but remember to bring your own plasters, paracetamol, and ibuprophen with you!
