Great location right on the beach. Room was a decent size with a bath/shower, fridge, A/C, lockable safe, free Wi-Fi and clean. Buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of restaurants nearby by for lunch and dinner. A decent size pool with plenty of seating. Staff very helpful. All in all a good base to explore the island and excellent value.

After the spa, we were taken to a ...
... off by the donut guy. He clearly saw us coming. Threw in a stale circle bread which he then charged us for. Damn donut guy.
Ferry was pretty uneventful and I'm not going to lie... Jess and I slept almost the whole way, even though we got "economy" seats, which aren't really seats at all. Passed out on/under a cafe table in the common area... but don't worry Mom and Dad, I had my money belt on and my hand on my bag ...
