They were more than accommodating.

Has anyone ever stayed at Excellence at Oyster Bay? I see it's right on Luminous Lagoon, which came highly recommended earlier in the thread. But no one mentioned this resort, so just curious about other people's experiences. I have a trip planned there in a few weeks.
Thanks!

How is the weather in August? I donít mind the heat just worried about nonstop rainstorms.
