Your "boring" beach days seem ideal to me. There is nothing I love better than a good beach nap. I'm with you in thinking that stretch of beach is the best on the island. We've never stayed over there but do borrow that beach from time to time. Its where my avatar pic was taken.
I would love to be doing what you've been doing the past few days. Beach, food drink, casino, repeat.
What made you chose Manchebo this time? (sorry if you answered this someplace, I didn't see it if you did)
First hotel we ever considered on line...... toured hotel/room after dinner one night last year and previous year... staff was helpful with this request.... good reviews.... desire for great beach, no flies......... and quiet.... got it on all counts....!
Oops... on a beach break after lunch and 3 brights.
Yday repeat of day before with DW switching from the beloved mojitos to white wine with lunch.
Dinner at the Chop House at Manchebo.... really nice job with the rennovations.... intimate steakhouse vibe.... décor, furniture, menu, tableware all updated to current/modern steakhouse... Service was super.... maintained original staff and retrained. Food really great and well presented.... would do it again and would recommend it.
Fireworks after dinner... nice to see the lights of Palm Beach along with the fireworks right at 9. Divi was late and went off just after 9:30... both views wonderful.
DW to bed and me to the Glitz... chased the 10k royal flush...... got close with a 10, J,Q,K of hearts dealt.... closed my eyes hard, prayed, cursed, promised and held my fingers while I pressed the draw button...... I hit the wrong end with a 9 of hearts for a 250 payout.... not the 10k.... still respectable.... cashed out shortly after and couldn't find a BJ table to get a grip on.... went to the Alhambra and struggled with a BJ table for a coupla hours and finally cashed out my 100 win. On the way out..... I said WTH and threw the 100 into a video poker game at the bar.... promptly hit 4 deuces for 1000... promptly cashed out and went home.
It had rained a bunch while I was in the casino..... and stopped before I left... quick walk back with wet streets and right after I got back in the room the sky let loose again.... someone was watching over me last night....!

WOW congrats on your most recent winnings! Although it wasn't the big one it is still a great one. You have me craving a Bright right now. Continued great trip. I think it is great when you take a tour of a resort you may be interested in. We toured the Riu when it first opened and they were very accommodating even took a pic of DH and I from the balcony overlooking the ocean. Still one of my favorite pics.
