          Our resort was gorgeous. Nothing can beat the beautiful Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana! The resort has 3 large swimming pools with a swim up bar, volleyball nets, and plenty of chairs! All workers were very friendly despite the fact that it was just a 19 year old and 18 year old best friends traveling together. Food was excellent, i highly recommend the steakhouse and italian a la cartes. The Chinese was also good, try the fried ice cream! Lunch was offered as a beach buffet right on the beach which was convenient and always good. The workers try very hard to involve people on the beach and we played in a beach soccer shootout and beach volleyball which were very fun and competitive. We spent $20 each to go banana boating at the resort-worth every penny! It was very fast and whipped through the water it was exhilarating! There is also a club on the resort property which was perfect as it was fun, safe nightlife for us! Only complaint is that sometimes the workers didn't understand what we were saying in english, but it was usually solved by speaking to someone else. I blew a fuse three times in our room from using my hair dryer, but it was fixed right away all three times, so no big deal. Room wasn't the most modern or updated but we were there just to sleep and shower, and we had a great view of the largest pool. I believe we were in building 10. Overall, we had a fabulous time and it was well worth our money.

Patrick and I agree we are ready to go home. Patrick figures he has lost at least 10 lbs. oh well... Look at the bright side. We couldn't connect tonight. I thought we changed our tactics but some how we messed up. I think we need to wait til after 8:30 or something.... ...

It had the most enormous (soon discovered) fake cake and there was a beautiful table set up and a dance floor on the beach.
