    We Made It.....

    Finally back..... landed at noon yday on JB from Logan...... we were the first 2 off the plan and didn't have to push any old ladies outta the way. We got to Logan at 5:15 for a 7:30 flight..... some lines but we were at the gate in 35 minutes. Seems like 'even more space' gives TSA pre check as well so it was quick thru security. Flight left late and got in early.

    We were thru the airport with no lines at immigration in about 20 minutes including baggage claim and a duty free stop! And checked into Manchebo by 1:00. We were greeted with mojitos in the lobby and cool scented moist towels. The bellman was supurb with his tour of the property and orientation. The room is beautiful and quite contemporary. Unpacked and on the beach by 2.... so bonus day on the beach!

    ...hate a tablet.... just not used to it.... Had a late lunch at Pega Pega of fish tacos and a chicken Tai salad... with a balashi chill, and amstel bright and my DWs new fav..... mojito was only $55. Back to the beach til sunset with another coupla... you guessed it.... mojitos....! Got DW to the room and showered and went over to Alhambra..... don't love this casino... the video poker at the bar is silent... so my 4 deuces for 1,000 didn't make any noise.....! Hit a couple of blackjack tables for modest wins and another video poker machine for a modest loss and left with a nice pocket full of 'playing money' for later in the trip....! Got back to the room, turned in by 11:30 which is the earliest I've ever tucked in here.!

    Manchebo is a beautiful property with the biggest beach of any resort on the island. DW loves it and so do I. The people are really great...!

    thanks for your 24 hour update!!

    no pushing old ladies this time? hmmm you have lost your touch.

    i hate the alhambra casino, but paul and i continue to visit the place as it is one of the few where we have had some luck.
    i find the smoke their the most bothersome.
    glad that you were lucky!

    glad that you are happy with your manchebo choice.
    it is a lovely resort in a great location...beach and walking distance to everything necessary.

    have a ball and thanks again for writing.

    From the first line of your first post I was thinking "must be on a tablet, that's not normal CP speak" lol

    Manchebo sounds just lovely! Congrats on the deuces!! I kinda like the silent idea, then you don't have as many people stalking your winnings

    So glad you're liking the Manchebo! We're not big fans if Alhambra either but have to admit I did okay there last trip. I think the Seaport Casino is my favorite. Did you peak in at the Chop House? Wondering how the renovation looks.

    So excited to see you are back, great start to your casino playing! Make sure you have a couple of Brights for me I am starting to crave one or two Glad to hear your honey has found a new drink, pretty impressed with hotel welcoming you with mojitos, nice touch. Good luck on the tablet, looking forward to your reports. Have fun in the sun, and the casinos as well
