Review summary

Fabulous trip. The only excursion we did was the Salmon bake... as a group...10 of us.... the food wasn’t ready when we got there.... not much besides salmon and a few sides and chicken... for $55.00 each, they were “surprised” when a couple guys asked for more salmon. Were it not for the waterfall within walking distance, I would have given a ZERO... BUT... that being said.... I’m not a big fan of seafood.... altho I did eat a few bites of the salmon... the meal wasn’t worth the time and money it took.

It rained, but the 10 of us rented a van and toured the island on our own time... beautiful scenery. If we hadn’t done this, there didn’t appear to be much to do....
