they provide prepackaged airline meals (basically), delivered to your suite.

remember, also, that the prices include the use of all the facilities, including paddleboating, speedboating, various sports, etc.

I rather enjoyed and if I can figure out how to take off a few days, will probably go again soon.
Mind you, I did get a ridiculous deal through a friend....

"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

If you are already taking off friday, why not just stay through Sunday?


I have to be at work on Sunday at 6:30am.

What was gross about it? They don't clean the rooms?

The prices look pretty good for a resort.

Sure if you think about it very hard it's gross, but you can think that hard and get grossed out by absolutely everything.

They can provide kosher meals?

I think if you think about it only a little bit (not so hard), it's pretty gross too - but I happen to think the rooms were not well cleaned. Like someone else mentioned, the linen and bedspread were stained (in such a "resort," this is the one thing you'd really like to be well cleaned). Our room also came with it's own small private pool - which sounds really amazing - but it looked and felt gross. It didn't seem like there was enough chlorine and I'm almost positive they weren't draining it for each new couple. Like Snag said, kosher airline type meals, can be delivered to your suite or you can eat at the dining room with other couples.

maybe the stains don"t come out anymore. stains don't mean the item isn't clean. it just means it's stained.

Then it should be discarded.

So Belle have you narrowed it down?
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

Kinda looking at Miami. But I want to surprise my husband, so not being able to chew it over with him is slowing me down.

If you're looking for a road trip from NY I just went to Newport RI/Eastern connecticut and highly recommend it.
