          Hi! So great to read your review and that you stayed on the resort 33 years ago! Wow! It was known as Trailways then. Do you have any photos you may have of the resort taken at the time? I think Club Raro's Sales & Marketing Manager Glenda Tuaine might be interested if you have any and can image them. Chatting with her I think there might be an interested in setting up some memorabilia recognizing the contribution made by past guests, especially from time going back to the origins of the Resort we love!

          Is this a good hotel to stay in the day before departure from the airport? My flight is a late night flight so is there luggage check in and airport transportation? Thanks!

          Apologies a new phone and the Apps did not come over. The Club is not friendly about late checkouts. Not certain of any place that does have late checkout. Sorry.
