Getting to Morning star from the airport is quite a journey (about 2 hours). However, the interesting bit is the ride on the vehicular ferry across the river (we drove to the vehicular ferry and it took us across).

I had 6 nights in this apartment resort and it was really very relaxing.Close to everything and you didn't have to cook if you didn't want to.It was all kept beautifully clean and I would love to have spent more time there.The staff were really good and always ready to help if needed.
