    I’m coming in October to stay with you guys with a group and I was wondering how the Restaurant and other facilities are doing. Will their be a place to eat out of the elements and how disruptive is the construction noise. I also don’t get the $100 credit you offer for the all inclusive package. what do they get. Thanks for you time
