Took a walk to Super foods at 8am. I was going to do my shopping on my first day Sunday at 3pm but the website said that they close at 2pm on Sunday. I found out that was not true that they were opened until 6pm.
I hung out at the pool for a change. I rarely ever use the pool but it was 1130am and I figured the beach huts were all taken. I actually enjoyed the pool and even went on the pool slide a few times. These little kids were asking me to slide backwards, forward and I tell them, hey I'm 105 years old.They were like really? "Mom that man is 105 years old and he goes on the slide so no excuse for you"
As far as MVC versus la cabana, there is no comparison or its apples to oranges. MVC is a no frills motel like which is good for singles or couples on a budget. It's just a plain room with a shower and small fridge no microwave. At La Cabana I have a 1 bedroom suite with living room, full kitchen, balcony.
Dinner was at La Terraza Italiana. Near the pool entrance there is a stair case but you have to go up 3 flights of stairs. Poor Ms Daisy who is 91 walked up those flights after walking there from La Cabana. Later on I found out the elevator is all the way towards the back of resort and then you walk forward towards restaurant.
The owner, host, chef Mimi is very gracious. She greets you and someone comes over to give you menus and take your drink order. Then Mimi herself comes over to take your order and she will accommodate the order for you if you don't like mushrooms for example. I had a shrimp with olive oil and garlic that came with a lentil soup and with shrimp risotto. Ms Daisy had a chicken marsala type dish with the shrimp risotto. My Shrimp dish was delicious but the shrimp risotto was out of this world. I rarely see Rissotto or Polenta at NY Italian Restaurant and her Italian style of cooking was very different than what I'm used to. The price was very good too! Dessert was 2 small mini cannolis which were not so good. Not sure if they were home made or from a bakery. I'm glad I ordered the mini.
The view was awesome! I took some great photos I posted on FB. When I get back I will post the photo. I don't have it loaded in my kindle. So overall La Terraza is worth it for the 530 to 630 cocktail hour to enjoy views or dinner. For dinner you need a reservation because tables are limited and all items are cooked to order so it can take a long while to get a table as a walk in.
Afterward I went to the bliss casino for 2 hours. I walked out $5 up and previous day was $25 up so no donations so far.
￼Another photo from La Terrazza. I think the happy hour is a nice place for a meet and greet. Nice views, not crowded and quiet. Although if it takes off it might get crowded. Yesterday Mimmi was surprised that it was packed. She said it's usually not busy in the low season so she was s surprised at all the customers showing up.
