          Did you find it difficult at all to travel off the island? Did the resort provide the transportation or was it something that you had to pay for? Are there other restaurants on the island? How far away is it from other excursions, like, the cave snorkeling tours??

          Was really difficult to get off the resort. If you wanted to pay about $65.00 per person you could get a water taxi.

          Are there other restaurants near the resort? Is the trip into town costly...how much in dollars?

          Hi, no other restaurants around. One must pay to go to another resort, about 100.00 per couple !
