Last time we talked to you, we shared our discoveries at Simpson Bay Resort and Marina. Mom and Alaska uncle had been here about 7 years ago, but the complex was called Pelican Resort. Pelican resort had a wonderful convenience store that was called the Peli Deli. The Peli Deli is still there.
They have everything and for reasonable prices, not inflated resort prices. We bought pop, beer and lots of ice cream bars there. Even other snack food. We love the Peli Deli!!
Our resort uses solar power to heat the water. Here is a picture showing the solar panels.
We like energy savings places. From our room, we see the pool, the pool bar and the beach. One day at the pool we sat under this branch. These leaves looked interesting from our lounges.
We had a bit of rain another day; here is the rainbow.
This boat, or raft, for kids to play near the beach is great.
The slide, the diving platforms and its location in the water make us yearn to be young humans.
The marina area has restaurants, stores and many boats. The store for water sports or boat trips is called AquaMania. These jet skis are a lot of fun.
AquaMania is where we purchased tickets for Saba. Another evening we sailed on a different boat for the dinner cruise. My Alaska cousin and I will tell you about those trips another day. One morning during breakfast at Alexander’s by the marina, these birds enjoyed someone’s extra breakfast.
The pool by the main lobby is a little larger than our pool.
It is very pretty, but we love our pool.
Simpson Bay Resort and Marina has time-share condos, so there is a sales staff at the resort. The sales manager and staff organized a couple events for all guests. The events were nice, but there were a few concerns. We talked to a staff member and also wrote a letter about our concerns. We did not even receive an acknowledgement about our letter or concerns. While we liked the resort and would happily stay there again, we would not purchase a condo as long as Jozef O’Niel, Director of Marketing or Rick work there. If we were not important as guests and prospective buyers, we would never feel important or valued as owners. Alaska uncle owns several weeks in Las Vegas, Nevada and mom owns multiple weeks in Winter Park, Colorado. That will be enough for now.
