Staying at Governor's Lodge Resort is probably the best & most convenient accommodation on the Island. The duty free shopping is a bit outdated and there are no bargains to be had - that we could find anyway. The local supermarket is a bit sad so self catering is quite difficult to cope with. There is no AC at all on the island so if you don't like the humidity & heat you will be uncomfortable as there is only fans in the units. We found 3 very nice places to eat at - for evening meals the one directly opposite the Governor's Lodge was wonderful. The restaurant at the Lodge was okay but not great sorry to say. It would be wise of Governors to include breakfast in their package - it is expensive & not really very good so we did our own (but no toasters or microwave in the unit which is bad) or went down town for coffee etc. The Orb Cafe is very good for coffee / breakfast or lunch - home cooking and a lovely couple run it.
