          Just okay but good price

          Frankly, we were not expecting a lush, upscale beach resort so when we did not get a lush, upscale beach resort we did not mind. We were there for two nights and spent the day in between on St. John, so for the price and a clean place to sleep and shower, it was a good deal. (We paid less than $150/night and opted out of the all-inclusive package.)

          The lobby is lovely but the rooms could use a refurbishment. The pool area is also nice but was marred in the early evening by loud karaoke, making the place really feel like college spring break. (7 p.m. is a little early for party karaoke.) The food was okay, although to be fair we only had one dinner (delicious jerk pork, okay sides) and one breakfast buffet (fine). Service could use a boost, with the exception of the bartender in the casino area and Sam at breakfast -- they were both absolutely delightful. Bell services and the front desk, however, were pretty dismal. Not at all friendly and at times downright rude.

          If we'd been here for a longer stay, we would have been disappointed. For the price we paid compared to other resorts on St. Thomas and our low expectations, however, it was just fne. Would we stay here again? Not for a long stay but certainly for a couple of nights.

          Access to Red Hook was very easy and we enjoyed that area. (We picked this end of the island since we had to take a ferry from Red Hook following our stay.)

          Today, our adventure takes us to Norman Island, and then to the west bank of Tortolla. The sail form Virgin Gorda Sound to Norman Island took across 22.5 nautical miles of open sea.

          Norman Island is uninhabited and privately owned. The island is about 600 acres, and about 2.5 miles long and is reportedly one of the locations of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of YARRRRRR "Treasure Island." ...

          mainly and hunger pains throughout the day. If you asked us whether it was 10am
          or 1pm it would be a 50/50 guess for everyone and there would be a mad scramble
          to find a phone or watch to find out who was right!

          Today we are leaving Gorda Sound around midday and
          heading down to Beef Island where the Airport ...

It was neat to see their heads above the water. I watched them for quite a while, but finally got too cold to stay any longer. So I headed back to the boat.

          We got some pictures on the boat and before long we were headed back to St. Thomas and the bar was open! There was champagne and beer, but I went with ...

This trip I am not diving as the pressure of the fins on my feet and joint would be too much and the Dr. advised I just take this trip off. So no dive boots. I go equipped with my crocs that definitely let the sand in. I tip toe gingerly to the chairs but make my departure to the fitness center pretty quickly. Once ...

          Following this day’s afternoon rush, we were the only boat left at Sandy Spit and the new quiet solitude was the payoff of having the ...
