We can't wait to go back!
Planning our next trip even now. We've thought about going elsewhere, but we were made to feel so much at home, we'll even face the airline we have to use to get there. We went to the same tables in the buffet restaurant almost every day, and the waitresses were wonderful - remembered what we drank - remembered our names - say hi to Audelaine and Gretel when you go! They all greet each other with kisses on both cheeks each morning.
Remember to bring face cloths and seafood sauce - they have everything else, well, except for maybe season salt. They do try to vary things in the buffet, but we have to remember they do not have access to all the spices that we are used to having, and they are creative within their means. Fresh juices and warm milk with honey, the best ice cream you've ever had . . . get your pina colada early in the afternoon (they tend to get a little watery later in the day - guess the machine doesn't keep it cold enough). We did find the female staff in the bar during the day more friendly than the male staff in the evenings
Bring school supplies, tylenol, pens, pencils, candies (Werther's were a big hit), card games. We bought a suitcase full of kids' clothes (especially jeans)at a thrift store, gave away the clothes and even left the suitcase behind. They appreciate these things much more than money, simply because they couldn't find them to buy even if they had the cash. In most cases, they earn about $22.00 per month.
