          A very well written review Jimmy - I remember staying at this resort when it first opened in the 90's and loved it! your review was fair and well thought out. Thank you for sharing it! Just wondering if you happen to go to a local seafood restaurant that specialized in lobster - i remember my girlfriend and i had dinner there once and the food was excellent and so was the owner who was quite the character :-)
