My first impression was a little disappointed. Most of the restaurants seemed small and dingy. The beaches were beautiful and that's where we spent most of our time so I thought I was just a little too fussy.
When we arrived in April with the group of ten we were happy with our rental home. It had a beautiful pool and and lots of room to spread out.
As the week progressed we started to notice how unfriendly a lot of the people in the area were. First, at mass, the priest made a comment about our arrival being late even though we arrived right at noon. Then we listened to a list of rules that anyone who attends mass would already know. I thought to myself "that was a little strange"
Then one night we went to Mr. Bones for dinner. The lady who took our name was harried and crabby. When we checked a half hour later to see how much longer our table would be she said "I don't know". I didn't think much of it at the time until a few nights later when I got the same response at Rod and Reel Pier. I told the man taking names that I was surprised how rude the people on this island were. Then I watched him tell a little boy who asked the same question that he hadn't been waiting that long and next time send an adult up.
My friends rode the trolley the next day and commented that two different drivers were honking their horns and yelling at people. It got to be a joke with us.
We finally went to a grocery store and decided to cook our own food the rest of the week. I guess we don't need to spend our money is this place.
I don't know what is going on around that place. We had a great time with our friends and the beaches are beautiful but I will pick somewhere else to vacation next time.
