Our suite was a bedroom with a double bed, a huge bath with both a shower and tub (with jets), a well equipped kitchen, a nice living room area with a sofa bed and a nice little patio!!

Quite a nice suite, and a very nice island. They preserved a lot of trees when building on HHI, which makes it look different from other seaside tourist places. No huge condos/hotels lining the beach front....we only saw one and that was only 5-6 stories. Plenty or tourist shops....beach wear, candies, ice cream etc....but not lining the main roads! There are several shopping areas or malls and even these have many trees in the lots.
Food was good. I didn't exactly stick to my plan, but did better than I expected. I love fried seafood and it's almost impossible to find any that's good here in Durham. I had fried seafood twice. Both times the breading was fairy light....one place so light you could actually see the markings on the shrimp right through it! We had breakfast (brunch) in the room each morning...mine was mostly shakes, fruit and breakfast bars. We ate out every evening. Seafood twice, steak/hamburg three times and a salad bar once. We also ate breakfast out one day. For treats, in addition to my fried foods, I had ice cream twice and pralines twice. The ice creams were worth it....both were homemade on the premises. I was able to eat a protein meal/treat shortly after indulging, so never had any really bad cravings. I was pleasantly surprised in the evening to not really want anything extra, even though my friend was snacking frequently!
We went to the pool twice (Sharon went 3 times) and to the ocean once. After the first swim in the pool I developed a rash on both legs. It got worse after the second swim, so I decided to avoid the pool from that point on. The one time we went to the ocean I got stung by a jellyfish after about 10 min in the water!!
On Thursday we went to Savanna. We drove to Savanna and took a 90 min narrated trolley tour of the city. It's very pretty with some really beautiful homes and churches. After wandering around and having dinner....and being entertained by our waitress....we went back for an evening ghost tour! Never saw any ghosts, but heard some very interesting stories!!
