The Barracuda short video

This was a very typical moment while diving in Antigua this kind of sized Barracuda would come in close sometimes with friend. Always curious (with friend bi-curious ok bad joke). Am glad I managed to get some video up about it, can't wait to try out my go pro as you can see this is not taken with anything near sophisticated for todays market.

New Resort ! the Sandals Grand this December

Featuring the standard but high standard you might expect of Sandals resorts the new Sandals Grand may be sure to disappoint ;) but its arriving the middle of december and will no doubt be a place where many of you choose to base yourself. It's not such a varied choice of holiday accommodations in Grenada being mostly resorts. So this is another variation I guess and you will have the same plans like all inclusive for example. This won't normally include scuba diving but other non powered water-sports are usually included in all inclusive plans.

St Lucia All Inclusive Experience at the Rex Resort St Lucian.

St Lucia All Inclusive Experience at the Rex Resort St Lucian.

The main image here is not of Reduit Beach this is the view on the other side of what you can see looking left from reduit beach, various trails lead up this way to a fish pond believe it or not and some good views can be had. Also the segue tours run up here.

Location : Reduit Beach St Lucia. Close to Rodney Bay.

We stayed at Rodney Bay reduit Beach and the Rex Resort there called the St Lucian during the month of November. It’s hard to fault the beach here and the resort also has a great variety of watersports  on offer. Cruise ship day we felt a little relegated to one side as the resort welcome the cruise shippers to come and stay on the beach. The resort has no less than 3 pools but the third and largest pool is somewhat hidden away. Considering that it has a pool bar its strange that they don’t advertise it more. Facing the ocean this part of the resort is on your left side. Via the beach just walk up and notice the pavilion style building from the beach and cut in. It is your resort don’t worry ! To the right is a slightly more upmarket rex resort the Royal that is out of bounds apart from a paying restaurant you can frequent, virgin staff get to stay over here, but it seems a little quiet to me and the beach is no better. Back to the left hand side of the resort facing the sea you can walk through the resort to get to the dilapidated but functional tennis courts. They look rougher than they are in reality the surface is passable for any game you might have, though it adds to the overall feeling that the resort needs a makeover also some kit is needed like a proper volleyball for the pool as there is shockingly NO beach volleyball a big disappointment for me. The gym is decent enough and pernile I think his name was who also do the activities friendly fun and helpful. The room we had was not poolside and was perfectly fine but nothing luxurious either.

Being all inclusive here and eating in the same place for all the meals would get very tiring indeed past a week. We stayed for just the week and it was ok. The food was to a decent standard and varied enough to help me bulk up – on purpose of course. I did feel there was no one place that encouraged meeting so easily.

We both felt that it was a mixed reception from some of the staff members who seemed at times to be almost unhappy – clearly a fault of the management but it must be noted that mostly they were very happy to serve chat and not allow the management lacking’s to be passed on to us. I met Richard  whom I had encountered at the Rex in Antigua and if anyone can get a resort better it will be him. It needs some investment and some managerial attitude change. For example the Jacuzzi which is cold was left with leaves from the trees and it looked so uninviting as to be unused but it was left like this because no one uses it we were told…well heat a little the water with black coiled pipes or a heater and keep it leaf free  then people will use it.
