    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!
