“It was so stressful everyday to decide what to eat for breakfast and lunch and where to eat – the bula deck, the house deck or the pool deck and what bula drinks to have – “decisions, decisions” – and where and when to snorkel amongst the beautiful coral – whether or not to take out the kayak – or should we swim, take a nap or read –“decisions, decisions” – whether to scuba dive or to enjoy the beautiful ocean view or the gardens – “decisions, decisions”… You made us feel so welcome and cared for. This vacation exceeded ALL of our expectations."
