          I have sent an email to the resort but they never replied. I'm a gluten free vegan and worried food choice (although at this rate I might have to grin and bear it with the Gluten Intolerance as it's not looking great for me!) Is there much choice at food times? I am more than happy spending my time eating rice, vegetables and fruit, but I just want to be happy knowing I should have a decent choice!
