    Hi Lalo and Kathe,
    I have done quite a few of these '5 Star all inclusive' holidays, and yep only their domestic alcohol is free. So what you have to do is see how quickly you can work through the cocktail list....

    And the premium restaurants ain't great either but their better than the standard ones!

    And 5 star in the Dominican, Portugal, Spain, Turkey etc... ain't never gone be what we westerners call 5 star, but hey it ain't raining like it is here in soggy old Wales.

    Any how just enjoy it, for what it is....

    Oh, and don't talk about the Haitions.....

    Looking forward to reading the rest of your fantastic travels.

    Mike

    There were something like 9 bars at the resort, but I think this one was our favorite

    This is my ADVenture style :evil
    I spent most of the past year+ living out of a tent, sleeping in a hammock or a cheap hostel, shitting on walls, starring down the barrel of a gun and monkey butt for weeks. It was my time for a little break from that life and on to one with five stars and having someone kissing my (monkey) butt for a change.......even if it was just for 5 days.
    With that being said, I can't wait to get over to SE Asia and tie my hammock up between two palm trees on the beach somewhere.

    It looks like I am coming to Southern California tomorrow for about a week.
    It will be the first time back in the States in almost a YEAR!
    I hope they will let me in:huh

    If anyone wants to meet up and hear some first-hand stories, let me know. Maybe this weekend will work. I will be in and around Orange County.

    I have no phone so I might just pick a bar/restaurant and see if anyone shows up.

    Kathe and I were having some cool beverages out at the pool bar. Kathe is getting a little happy. And I am too. She is being a brat and flinging some of her drink in my face with her straw.
    I asked her to stop it but she kept doing it.
    So I had a tiny amount of liquid in my cup and I threw it on her.
    She smiled and calmly ordered another lemon daiquiri. And as soon as she got it and with out hesitation, she dumped the whole cup over my head.
    I was in shock! First because it was cold. And second because I couldn't believe that she actually did it.
    I called the bartender over and ordered a strawberry daiquiri. He brought over two and we each grabbed one and we each dumped those over each other's heads. At this point, all the other people around us had backed far away and the bar tenders were getting mad.
    I left the bar laughing my head off and jumped in the pool.
    Kathe tried to order some more drinks but the bartender cut her off.
    She said to the bar tender......."what, we were just playing. Are you telling me you don't play with your girlfriend like that? You don't pour chocolate on her boobs?
    After she told him that, he laughed and poured her another drink.:freaky

    The resort had a nice pool with a swim up bar.
    But we spent most of our time in the ocean. The water was warmer and had less pee in it.........all those free drinks have to go somewhere:puke1

    Our room had a nice ocean view and its own hot tub. We added the bubbles for fun.

    We went in the hot tub every night until it broke the last night. And we got lucky because we had a beautiful full moon come up each night over the ocean. And it made the ocean sparkle.
