          Hey we are staying here in October, our honeymoon combined with our friends getting married in Barbados. We will have lots of friends staying locally. Can we upgrade to allinclusive when there? Or do we need to do it before? We are bringing our 4 year old son. Has anyways experience with the children's club? How much is recommended for spending money if not allinclusive ? Just bed and breakfast. 10days Thanks

          We are coming to stay next month for a special celebration and would like to know about the dress code at dinner as there seems to be conflicting views. I am guessing smart but not necessarily jackets for men. I am hoping not as I don't want to pack one!! Also, has the sun bed situation been resolved as we are not able to scramble for one early in morning?
