Rained for three days - I suppose they can't help that. But the breakfast was awful - lots of stale bread and birds flying around the dining area constantly pecking at your food! Also loud crickets make it hard to sleep and the air con was dodgy!
Would have been better with kitchenettes built into the rooms.
There are some far nicer places to stay on this island for a similar price.

A man came in a boat with a lot of fruits and he blew in a shell to tell everybody he was there. He played loud music, danced singing in the water and sold pineapples and coco nuts with rum in.

We look behind us and can see the cruising division starting, the sea is a mass of sails as over 100 boats all ...
... so we went down there a few times. We found an Indian Restaurant which was nice with great food, and a cool little bar with really cheap beer. We also went down to the Beach Resort which we have access to. The lunch menu there is quite cheap but dinner is expensive so when we didn’t eat out we had food at the hotel as they do awesome veggie roti’s!!!! We did get a free meal at the Beach Resort though. It was obviously a time share thing ...
... some food. We headed back to Rodney Bay main street for some pizza. It was in this very local place which was full of family's having some dinner and a few quiet beers while the kids ran around playing. It was a perfect end to the day.
Our plane wasn't departing until about 5 the next afternoon so we arranged with Jacob to drive to Soufriere to visit the mud pools and have a closer look at the famous Pitons. It was about a 2 hour drive to ...
