We arrived by boat To Mystique and were greeted by a 30 ec$ visitors charge per person. Oh well we think this place has got to be worth it. Then we were informed that we couldn't go to Macoroni beach - there were celebrities there. Oh well never mind - we guessed that there was bound to be other great places to visit. We were recommended the Cotton House. $15 us to get there - no worries - sure it would be well worth it. To find a nice beach - beautiful sea - although beach not easily accessible due to coral/rocks. The cotton house looked very inviting and pristine with comfy loungers and double hammocks dotted around. Staff looked impeccable too.
On trying to order food/ drinks we were interrogated as to where we were staying, we were not allowed to access the restaurant, we were frowned on as we were still damp from the sea and I was required to fetch a towel so as not to dirty any outdoor seats I sat in. The clear feeling we got was that we were not welcome. We were asked to move our things away from the restaurant and the staff did not seem to trust that we were not going to disappear without paying our bill. I said thank you numerous times with not so much as a your welcome once. Very disappointing atmosphere. Very pretentious feel. We asked for a taxi to be ordered which unsurprisingly was no trouble at all. A real disappointment. I was a legitimate visitor - with money to spend - felt like the scene in pretty woman when she walks into the shop and is not considered good enough to spend her money. A real shame.
