    Loved the stay at Driftsands. The view was just amazing. Watched the dolphins pass, watched the whales play. The best place to have breakfast is on the balcony overlooking the sea. Was not our first stay and won't be the last. We will be back.

    I also found it a bit strange. I really think they should've included that fee in the rate. Simpler and raises no questions.
