I had the best of intentions to write a trip report when I got back, but have yet to do one. I will try to write something up this weekend.

You are going to love BB. Let me know if you had any questions about the property....

it's great to hear that you had a good time and it sounds like BB met your expectations...

what kind of room/suite did you have? we've asked for one of the oceanfront suites in the old building...that view from those balconies...looks pretty amazing...and i'm already thinking coffee and sunrises!

i've got a million questions...anything you can tell us about staying there...any tips for making the most of our time there? what's the beach area like? can we swim from there? what's the best way to get to town? we don't mind a nice liesurely walk even if it takes awhile...how long would you say that would take? did you rent bikes? golfcarts? cost?

oh...and what about the buffet breakfast? all the details!!

ok...i better wait for your report... smile

if you can share some pics of the place...would love to see those...

We had an ocean front suite on the 3rd floor. The room was great, we loved the seaside balcony. Nice kitchen with full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes...etc.

The walk to town is not too bad, maybe 15 min to Ramons, and then you're pretty much there...but we did take some taxis and golf carts from time to time.

El Divino's breakfast was always good--scrambled eggs, fruit, pastries, and coffee or tea. You could also use the breakfast vouchers for US$5 off a lunch entree.

Trip report by monday...I hope.... :p
