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.

You could walk out of your ...
... temp is a little cooler now we are in Fall, but the beach was packed with locals and tourists , all enjoying the gorgeous day ,with water temp of 26 degrees. A drop of 4 degrees from the summer months .A highlight was a sighting of a large school of stingrays making their way slowly South along the shallows of the beach….In fact, so close in , they cruised between the swimmers and shallow waters edge. That drew some excitement and many rushed to glimpse the ...

Main courses are called entrees for some strange reason, and what we call entrees are appetisers. Our appetisers at home are called starters here.
An example of the food situation was when we joined Chuck and Jan for dinner at an Italian pizza place at Pt Charlotte last night, and we shared 2 "special" family pizza deals between the 6 of us.....the appetisers were 10 chicken wings x 2, large bowl Greek salad x 2, then 2 18" diameter ...
