    Good Day, You mentioned bracelet-making, do you know if these were the ones you make using coloured glass beads, or were they the coloured string kind. Thanks so much for your time. Rhonda

    They make the bracelets with coloured string and they have several different designs , sometimes they add a few beads. They also have tile painting you might like.

    Last time we were there in 2016 we went with Westjet. We had a good tower room. Thinking of Sunwing this year. Bit of a price difference. Can someone from resort verify where the blocked rooms for Sunwing are? Worried the price difference is putting us in the wing rooms or lowest floors. Does being a return guest help in getting a room you like? What is the situation on fridges now? Is that considered an upgrade? Thank you

    We flew Sunwing & we were not in the tower. The hotel staff would have to confirm room arrangements. We had no fridge or coffee maker.
