    Hey there. The best way would be to book sit in coach basis transfers arranged by hotel itself. OR you can ask your tour operator for the same. We had it inclusive.

    Is lunch at "Lime" (sushi restaurant) included in the all inclusive package for guests staying in a couple's suite? Or do you have to be staying in the adults only part of the resort?
