We arrived around 1pm, got out of the airport amazingly quickly and headed straight for The Sands.

We're in a lovely ocean view, 2 bedroom suite. The view is awesome! I suppose if I looked closely enough, I could find things that could be upgraded or better, but it's more than nice (and I'm a bit of a hotel snob). For the money, I don't see how one can go wrong here.

Went to Graceway Gourmet and stocked up on whatever we didn't bring from home. I found the prices to be comparable to NYC, with the exception of beer, which is much more expensive.

Spent just a few minutes at the beach and all I can say is wow! I've never seen water so clear and sand so soft and white and I've been to a fair amount of Caribbean islands and Mexico.

No mention of the "bug," though I did bring some disinfectant wipes, etc.

If any has questions, please feel free to ask.

I'm off to get another rum punch!
