    That was a first for me! When I first saw something sticking out of the slot I just thought it was bread crumbs stuck on it at first...then as I got closer, I looked at him and he looked at me and I think we both screamed!

    I think the lizard from earlier in the trip sent him to my room for revenge.

    Great trip report and beautiful pictures. Lucky you, you get to go again in Sept.. Would you say the restaurants are less crowded than last year? We are going in July and always make reservations. Do you think we will still need them?

    Restaurants were definitely not crowded in comparison to last April. We never made a single reservation but also went in knowing that we would be happy sitting at the bar with a drink or two if we had to wait.

    We showed up at Madame Janette's at 7pm one night without a reservation and were seated right away. But I would say by 8pm the place was pretty full and busy so I think we got lucky that we went so early.

    Wait....we did make a reservation at Passions which we did need because they have limited tables, especially for the 6:30pm sunset time.

    nice report. I have been staying at Hyatt HR for past 8 trips and Katherine and I are considering the DIVI LR for family (3 young children included) I have always been interested in AM but have been reluctant to try because of the road crossing from facility to beach. I thought it would be difficult to perform the pool to beach dance with the kids.

    Any thoughts? How is the AM for kids? is it mostly couples/adults?
