I'm planning to book a room at the LDB for august as part of my honeymoon trip.
However, I have gone thru the web ( which is the only way to get prices), and comparing the different opstions, it comes up to this:
7 nights "normal" rate for garden view room with special "B&B package" ( free of charge) is 3235 $, taxes included. No Tortola-VG transport
7 nights "American plan", which ADDS dinning ( since breakfast is included), is 4495$, taxes included. No Tortola-VG transport.
7 nights "FULL American plan", which ADDS to previous one lunch is 4775 $, taxes included. No Tortola-VG transport.
And then, Romance Package, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus gifts ( which we don't really care), adds the romantic dinner at the beach ( which could be fun) and sail journey ( which I personally don't like since I don't really like the sea, althought I love the beach), is 5000 $, taxes included. Transport to-from Tortola is also included.
OK, so NOW: I see that between the first "basic" package and the second one "Half American" let's say, the difference in price is: 1260 $, which is basically dinner......
Between the second and third, difference is: 270 $, which I find very competitive
And then, from third to last, is 225, which considering the sail journey and gifts, AND transports to-from Tortola is reasonable...
So here I go:
1) When talking meals at the LDB ( lunch/dinner): Are drinks included in any case, or meals are ALWAYS ONLY meals????
2) Considering option number 1, which I find very competitive:
a) Is there "ANYTHING" around the hotel to eat ( and eat well). Are there any places near?? With the difference, maybe renting a car could be interesting in order to do some excursions, and use it to eat outside sometimes...
b) How much is a normal lunch or dinner at the LDB??? Considering that 1260 between first and second option is 180 $ per day for dinner.....How are prices???
3) Considering also doing some excursions to other islands around, we would loose some of the meals.....
Can you do some "life" out of the resort????
I know these questions can look a little akward and hard to answer, but I hope you get the idea.
Idea is for 2 33 and 34 newly married looking for beach as principal activity ( sunbathing, swiming, having a cold beer relaxing) and then some activities ( could visiting something for an entire day or part of it).......
Thanks a lot reall. Looking forward to get there....
