    Free WIFI @ your resort?

    If your resort has FREE wifi.....please tell us the name of the resort, how the wifi reception is.

    Thanks

    Paradise Beach Villas has been having wifi issues of years. We used to pay the Setar fee of $35/wk for wifi but reception was so spotty we gave up. For the past couple of years I've been walking down to the lobby/library and sitting there to use free wifi. It's limited in range.

    Recent notices have indicated they are doing an upgrade and that there will soon be free wifi across the property.

    The wifi at the Ritz is free and is terrific. They have wifi that is as fast as home anywhere on the property, even the beach.

    Amsterdam Manor has always had free Wifi - connections are good whether in your room, on your balcony, or even on the beach and beach bar.

    Hope this isn't drifting off-topic but... we've had WAY better performance by setting up our mobile phones as WiFi hotspots and connecting to the Internet that way. Much better than our spotty SETAR cable land-line and no dead spot limitations (where you can't get a connection).

    I suspect it's because the SETAR LTE network is a lot easier to maintain and upgrade (because the infrastructure is all above ground).

    That must be new! Free wifi was only available in the office a few years ago. Nice
