A Walkabout Tour

Let’s take a quick visit around the home-away-from-home, then hit the beach, shall we?!

When you drive up, here’s what you see:

circular drive – one way only!!

Enter the lobby…

it's lovely to sit out in the open air lobby - there's even a big screen tv, just to the right of this photo! personally, i like to just sit and people watch in the evening!

there's a mini market conveniently located right off the lobby! NEW: it's now open earlier and later than when we were last here! and it's bigger!

Outside the lobby is the pool area:

do you want sun or shade? there are options for both!

the pool has a deep end (in the middle) and shallow areas at each end

...or would you prefer a soak in the hot tub?!

view from my lounge chair, poolside yesterday, looking out over the beach area

and looking the other direction, back at the resort building

Down the steps to beach level…

the "juggling fish" has some cute stuff; the "azzurro" restaurant is very popular!

the beach! the little sun huts are called "chickees" - people rise as early as 3-4 A.M. (!) to reserve "their" chickee!

New this year:

townhouses - there are 3-4 of these dwellings on-site - perfect for a multi-generational family vacation!

the fitness centre has seen a COMPLETE overhaul: new location, new equipment - way better than it was...

...except that in its new spot, you no longer overlook the beach...

...however that DOES mean the room is cooler without the sun streaming in! two thumbs up, over all, i say

OK! Let’s grab a chickee, shall we?!

    Cathy what a fabulous place!

    I hope hope hope one day Jason and I can visit some place like that — and how awesome would it be to have one of those townhomes?

    I may have wept a little bit looking at these photos. Everything looks so sunny and blue…even the chips stand at the store looks more colorful!

      you’re so right! all colour seems so vibrant down here…even in july at home i don’t think we get these intensities in colour. a fine example – tanning! you just cannot tan in canada in the summer like you can down here! more photos to come! 🙂
