yes,Lan - to go that far north - (last year cost over $50US for us & our 2 boys ONE WAY- i was stunned) and at least 30 minutes ride if on the public boat that stops all up the way. too rich for our blood, as are most of the places to eat up there. real, real pretty, though.
like harriette said, if you can afford and want seclusion, it's lovely up there.
none of the places you mentioned are very convenient to town. brahama is on the lagoon side - it says ocean front or beach front or whatever and looks real pretty, but it does not face the reef and is still only accessible by boat. does anyone know - is there only one place to eat over there without heading to town??
for all your wasted time & aggravation spent already, i woulda just told II where to stick it and booked a couple of rooms at the palms/ victoria house, bbeach, banyan bay - wherever - or more likely booked a private house and thrown the stress in the trash and had a nice party. "f" 'em. WAY WAY too much crap FOR A VACATION!!! (are we having fun yet?) as always, just my opinion.
