We get back to our room and find that red rose petals have been placed leading to the spa bath which has been filled – so I thought I better use it.

Last Dinner at the Lobster House


Clam Chowder – very nice – a lot better than it looks.


Happy Pam

P1120713  P1120712

Pam had the Grilled Lobster and I had a seafood combination (Scallops, Prawn, Lobster) served in a Lobster Shell with a Jalapeno Cheese sauce.

Kitchen Tour

One of the planned activities was a Kitchen Tour – there were about 16 of us on the tour.

It was interesting how it works out the back.

They use 500KG per day of Fruit & Vegetables and about 250 KG of Red Meat and 250KG of White Meat per day.

Along with fish and the hundreds of breads and rolls and deserts and ice-cream all made in house it is quite a large operation.

The lazy pool


One of the pools that meander around the resort.

A few drinks during the day


The day started off with breakfast along with 5 glasses of bubbles each – these waiters – they love to feed you up on booze.


How to make  Margarita class – so a couple of Margaritas before lunch.


A few more drinks at lunch


Just before dinner – some cocktails – a Pineapple Margarita.


Then a Caesar special (Caesar is a bartender at the Martini bar who Pam likes to think of the Energizer Bunny). I asked for a Apple Martini and < 20 seconds later there it was. He is like this every time you see him. He remembered me from being here 2 years ago and he was like that then as well.

So I think I had 4 margaritas there, and Pam had a couple of Mojitos

P1120563  P1120566

Dinner we had a Pineapple Margarita again. I tried a white wine but did not like it so had to settle in for the reds. 3 reds Pam tells me.

We flagged the concert and I crashed in a few seconds of getting back to the room.

What a boozy day – cost $0

Off to get some breakfast  - so who knows what the day will bring.

First Breakfast

P1120438  P1120439  P1120440

Bubbles for breakfast – yes please.

A good breakfast – the food is better here than Punta Cana.

A lovely dinner at the lobster house


We came back from a day resting near the pools to this on our bed.

We decided to go to the Lobster House for dinner last night (no reservations required)

P1120513  P1120518

P1120514  P1120515  P1120517

We had a great location for dinner overlooking the pool from our table.

P1120520  P1120521  P1120522 

We both ordered Clam Chowder which was just Yummy. We then ordered grilled lobster and they delivered 3 plates because one was a bit small.

A glass of bubbles and all was great….
