Marty... Let me add my name to the lovefest! I think many people who frequent this site tend to take it for granted and forget about all the hard work that goes into mantaining it and keeping it current. We travel all over the Caribbean and I agree that this is the best site I've ever seen for a destination. We went to Curacao in March and I would have LOVED to have found a site as all-inclusive as this one! Somebody buy Marty a Belikin (or two)!

Marty, you da Man! The comments here more often than not, keep folks updated. There is not a site out there than can compare to this one. Not even close. Plus, you post the important things, the critical things, like pix of Ms. Belize, and the Belikin calendar. Yep, you, and this board are the best! laugh

We were in AC 5/13 Ė 5/19 Just returned ahead of the storm. I had reviewed this posting before we left and had a preference list when we arrived. I would like to confirm some picks.
Breakfast: I could do Estelís every day. Best jacks. Second would be Monkey Bites. Although there seems to be some pride in the local coffee I did find it a bit like under-roasted chicory.
Lunch:
El Divino: We went for the Brazilian rotisserie and they did not have it. Went for lunch to have the gourmet pizza based on the reviews...they were out. But the waiter recommended the 12oz burgers and they were great. The seats in the bar are fun after a few.
Blue Water Grill was disappointing to me. I walked over to a place next door because I could smell the BBQ. It was very good, but since I just walked in from the beach side I donít know the name. I think this was DJ's on the Beach or some such two letters.
Vendors by the park took some effort to find since we were looking for a New England style park. We sampled from three and found it an excellent escape from shopping with the better halves. Bring a few Bilikins with you.
Calienteís: Sat on the patio first day.....good service.....good food.... introduction to premium vs. regular.
Dinner: Victoria House was fabulous. I had been trying to get a reservation and had no response from my E-mails. I finally called an 800 number and was told that Amy could allow us early seating. When we arrived, the dinning room was half-empty. We stayed for several hours and it did not fill. This gave me a bit of snob resentment. BUT the food and wine were excellent, as was the service...best dinner of the trip.
Casa Picasoís: There were six of us and I think we ordered everything on the menu except pasta dishes. The tapas were excellent. The desserts were very good except for the creme bruleí, sorry over done for me. The cracked coconut definitely came out on top, followed by the bananas rum caramel. They have Van Gough chocolate vodka so I had them make one of my favorite martinis chocolate raspberry...Van Gough and just a splash of Chambord. The rest of the group sampled various martinis from the menu and they were all great. I was a little disappointed that we were told there would be a movie, but it never happened. Is that a regular thing?
Jambal jerk pit: Even the not too spicy among us loved it. We have a couple of jars of the jerk in the fridge and it will be used for Memorial Day.
Carambaís: We walked in sat down and two bowls of a kind of ceviche were put on the table with chips. The best! Yes, even better than Papiís dinner. I tried to order another bowl for my dinner but was denied. It appears itís their version of free chips and salsa that other places offer.
Lost my money clip in that area, initials HJM. If anyone finds it I will pay for shipping.
Rendezvous, the winery up north: No way to say this delicately.... Sharply inhaled! The service was very good (and we tipped accordingly) but there was no other saving grace. The drinks were measly...I watched the bartender measure my rum as if it were liquid gold. Not the way to deliver at the prices charged. The wine sampled would not bring $3 US retail. We went here because three of the crew is vine enthusiasts (winos) and they were more than disappointed. The food did not improve the opinions. The French / Thai seafood stew not only tasted bad, but the two who ordered it had a lot of porcelain squats to do that night and all the next day.
Thanks for the heads up on the service charge. Since we were a party of six we expected some charge to be on all checks. Itís fairly standard in the states. We were surprised to find it was seldom there.
Diving....Hey, thatís why we came. (to the drinking town with a diving problem)
We found the inner reef diving to be about average for the Caribbean. Perhaps our expectations were set too high. On the upside the proximity made for short boat rides and we would be back from two tanks in time for lunch. The Blue Hole trip saved the day. The crew at Amigos Del Mar has this down. Edgar gave the best assertive pre-dive briefing that I have ever heard. He definitely set the tone for what to expect and how to respect the dive masterís decisions. The crew was efficient and knowledgeable. The Blue Hole is a dive that you need to check off your list if you are a diver. The combination of poor vis and short time make it hard to appreciate. The dives at Crescent moon caye and the Aquarium made complete redemption. These two dives are a reason to come to AC and endure a two hour + boat ride to dive. Best of all no PICA PICA for me....just one of the dive masters. Could not find vagisil anywhere on the island for him.
