I can sympathize with you (I planned a vacation with 5 women at Casa Tortuga also and personalities clashed). Sometimes its just not worth playing tour director cause you're not gonna please everyone. Sounds like you did not let this spoil your vacation and hopefully you could just concentrate on those that were having a good time as well. From my own experience and from those that did not like AC from this board -they seem to have one thing in common; they just cannot seem to relax and go with the flow, so they nitpick everything. But enough of the negative, I'm glad you had a good time. How was the pool - its looks great. I also agree that Maria is a wonderful cook. What tours did you do. Its been two years and I finally finally booked for Aug. 21-27 and cannot wait only this time I'll be traveling alone.
