When we checked in with Jaime I asked about the Lobster Bake and if she thought we could get a gluten free meal as our daughter has Celiac Disease. She said it would not be a problem but to mention it if we decided to attend. When we got to our room Jaime called to say she called Tracy, the Chef, to tell her we had a child with Celiac and she wanted us to know that she was going to prepare a gluten free egg dish for her so she too could eat more than fruit for breakfast each morning. I was honestly shocked that Jaime took it upon herself to connect with the Chef about our food challenges and they were so willing to go the extra step for us without us even asking. When we arrived for breakfast the next day Tracy, the Food and Beverage Manager went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed for our daughter. I truly cannot say enough about how amazing the entire staff was to us. From the housekeepers to the gentleman that helps moving the furniture on the lawn every single person we encountered was AMAZING. I should mention we did enjoy the lobster bake and again they made sure our daughter had a meal she could eat and also had a bowl of watermelon for her dessert, again without us even having to ask. They totally anticipated our needs and exceeded our expectations. Although Gluten Free is 'available' we are not always received well and this staff truly made us feel like it was not a big deal at all. Kudos to the entire team!!
