    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.

    ... they're not disturbed) digging in our turtle's nest, looking for the eggs. Initially when we said hi, they were a bit aloof...I am sure they get a lot of tourists trying to talk to them. However when we mentioned we saw the turtle build her nest the previous evening, they immediately got excited and quickly asked, "Where was her head?" We told them, they adjusted their digging location, quickly found the center of the nest, and protected its ...

    ... Being on the second floor meant we had to take the dog down the steps to walk her. I have never stayed in a place before where the address was spray painted on the side of the bldg. Enough whining. We had a wonderful time but want something a little better next year. Enter the competition to make a reservation on AMI. There is so much demand and so many people return year after year, it is difficult ...

    Again courtesy of CS friends, we are back on Palm Island and what a brilliant island it is.

    It is accessible only be private boat or ferry...and while the ferry ride is only about five minutes, it feels like it is miles away from the mainland.

    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 ...

    ... to buy a few items and then we drove around some more, visited the lighthouse and the parks. Sanibel is not very big so it didn't take us long. I will definitely come back here. Then it was on to Fort Meyers where we drove around a beautiful gated community called Harbour Gates. It has it's own golf course and the housing and condos were stunning. What an awesome place to retire! Then to the Miromar Outlet mall that was massive! I needed to get a new suitcase as ...
