Al Faro Resort

sunny 30 °C

This resort is built on the side of the hill overlooking the bay. So to go anywhere, you go up or down stairs. There is a small swimming pool but I haven't tried it out yet. We came here to enjoy a little more luxury after camping on the expedition. After our breakfast, we agreed to just lie around and chill for the day. By lunchtime, the boys were getting restless and started making plans for tomorrow.
The view from our patio is lovely. There is a large resort across the bay which lights up the area at night - good nightlight for us in our room! The sound of their entertainment in the evening comes across the water as well.

The WIFI here is only available up in the lobby/dining room and is often very slow and unresponsive. We thought we would be able to get all caught up online while here, but it is proving more difficult.
As I sat on the patio after lunch, I watched a float plane land and taxi to the large resort across the water.

After a relaxing day, we had an early supper. They like you to order your meal during the day, and then they serve it about 7:30 or later. They want at least 1 hour prep time before you eat. Very different!
One of the things I forgot to tell you about the meals on the expedition is that Jeric or one of his staff, would tell us what each dish was and what ingredients it had after the food was laid out. Then they would say "Attack", which was our signal to get in line and load up. It was so nice to know what the ingredients where in each dish and if you were really curious, Jeric would share more of the cooking info with you.
