If you are a J1 Visa staff or H2B visa staff and are looking to work at this property I would avoid it at all costs. Although the accommodations for staff are cheap $50 a week you won't have much work. Most departments are only working 2 days a week. March is busier yes but you will spend huge amounts of time sitting around having nothing to do. There is hardly extra employment on the island so can't find extra money. The bosses are lazy and never to much. There is too many managers doing nothing and too many staff with no shifts. Take my advise and go somewhere else. I wish I had.

We can see why we hear this area called "Old Florida" so often.
Obviously back in the 30's and 40's before the development, before the big bridges, before paved roads, life ...
It was cloudy and foggy but our first trip down to the beach was relaxing but cut short when the driver called to deliver Linda's car. We walked on the beach and visited the Lighthouse Museum but the picnic lunch had to be put on hold. We are still amazed that we live near the beach. Next time we will get to stay a little ...
