    I didn't quite know what to expect. Once I appreciated how much effort they put into making it an environmentally sustainable resort I accepted the slightly old, slightly tired infrastructure. Its a great GBR experience and the staff are friendly and helpful.

    My wife gets sick very easily. We both used the motion sickness patch and the ginger tablets. Neither of us got sick at all. I know she would have been sick without the patch.
