dining room staff were courteous and helpful for the most part. The meals were not up to their usual very high standard but were palatable. The drinking water was however was very unsafe and my grandchild was negatively impacted, could have been very sick but for Gods grace. I also enjoyed the beach facilities and the driver was very helpful.
