You were our neighbors when at Caribbean Villas. It was our first time at the Villas and what a delightful place to stay! A good walk to town but the peace and quiet were worth it.
Fortunately (for us), we didn't find the cost of food as high as you did. We did our grocery shopping at Marina's, which was a short walk, and bought from the street vendors for some of our meals. The most expensive meals were the lobster dinners but it all balanced out in the end. One day, we bought BBQ chicken dinners for $8 each(BZ)which included the chicken, coleslaw and the rice and beans. Delicious. This was from a street vender in the center of town.
We had such a good time, can't wait to go back again.
Maybe we'll run into your group!
