Highlights of the interview:

  • The Resort had six bars when it first opened.
  • Many of the guest those days would visit the Resort and not tell their friends about it so they could keep  it for themselves.
  • The ancient fish pond was used for food.  When the seas rough they couldnt use their canoe and would harvest the fish from the pond.
