Quite a few tables were effected and I'm sure not everyone was as forgiving as we tend to be. We are honestly the lowest maintenance diners one could ever hope for. When I arrive I already know what I want. I'm probably half dehydrated from beaching it all day so keep the water flowing and I'll tip you well. When I'm finished try to get me the check in under 20 minutes and I'll be happy... under 10 and I'll love you forever.
    Thanks for clarifying it, Curt. That's kind of disappointing getting neglected that way. You truly are a saint for being so patient. I probably would not have been.

    Did you try to make a little signal with your hand to get the waiter's attention? That's something I remember as a cultural difference. When I read today about the Bucuti, it was mentioned in that article that if the guests on the beach there wanted something, they would "raise a little red flag" on their table and the waitstaff would appear immediately.

    Perfect last full day spent at Arashi beach and Palm beach area!

    And being on your last day three hours on the beach, how lucky! At what time did your plane leave?

    Seems like another great vacation where many memories were made.

    Another great trip! Thanks for sharing. One of these days we will spend more time on other beaches and try more food trucks. Tia Rosa was definitely worth the hunt we went on to find it!
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    I completely love & respect that vibe change Makes me thankful that they allow me to share their land

    Thanks for sharing your trip Curt, sounds like you and Maggie had a great time doing a lot of different things. After reading your daily reports, we have decided we want to spend more time at Eagle Beach this coming trip.
