I reading trip reviews of the resort on Trip Advisor, I came across a tidbit about alcohol at the resort. The Manager, in responding to a review, stated:
"Also good to know, you can prepurchase drink cards which are a great value if you like mixed drinks, wine, or menu cocktails like margaritas or pina coladas. You prepay in US dollars about $9.60 per drink including gratuity. For 7-night stays, a 21-drink card is currently $202. On island the rates are in CI $ and are equivalent to about $12.50 USD plus gratuity. Just ask when you book."
Curious, I called the resort and sure enough it is a pre-purchase deal; so I signed up. One note: apparently both people sharing a room must have the same drink package so if you are sharing room; both people must have the package. Although maybe Kamala could work out something with the resort if only one of you wanted to get the package.
The resort just sent me the info on this new option and being on trips the past several weeks I have not had a chance to post it. Tks Scott!!
I can certainly get you all signed up and would be happy to do so HOWEVER there is no exceptions on the 'both have to be in the same room and both have to agree to the drink pkg'. I have argued when two people have different bills it should not matter but alas some 'single' arguments will always lose to the 'couples' mentality.
So unless you are doing a single room OR are coming as a couple...we can't help you get this UNLESS your roommate wants to do it too. And for that you need to know your roommate...so
Shy of posting rooming assignments right now... let us know if you want to do the drink pkg. Maybe we can chg roommates to accommodate or if there aren't that many interested that is fine too.
We can also get those signed up who are doing single rooms.
Another option.... get booze in duty free and we can do our famous Chez Neil Happy Hours which is what many people do anyway. There is a local store on the island where the dive guides get booze and snacks if you don't bring your own.
