Saturday – We’ve come to our last day full day to enjoy on the island. This is our longest trip to date at 16 days although Sunday is travel day so 15 full days. Our arrival was midmorning so we had a full day except that we had to hunker down at the Travelers Inn for two nights. So much for getting a full day on the island to enjoy.

Spent today at LaPlaya. For us we think it’s the nicest beachfront on Orient. Large area with many different places to enjoy a drink or a meal on the beach or in one of two dining patios. I drank a cappuccino on the beach chair then before lunch we had cocktails sitting further back on very comfortable wicker chairs/couch with cushions and umbrella’s. They also have bean bag type chairs throughout the back end of beach. Several shaded independent wood structures for 4 to 6 diners.

Their sushi is outstanding with specialty rolls generous with multiple slices. Two specialty rolls plus Nigri tuna and mahi-mahi were served on a huge wooden Lazy Susan. Decided to splurge on a lemon tiramisu which was very tasty but too much for one person.

Drinks at Yacht Club before returning to Villa to shower and get ready for dinner. Our last night was spent at Roma/Mr. Chow in Maho. David wanted gnocchi and I wanted Pad Thai. We sat at a high top where we had a nice conversation with Marco who manages both restaurants. Since this was our 4th time at the restaurants the wait staff also stopped by for a chat.

I added shrimp to the Pad Thai, it was good as was the Chicken Nem appetizer. David ordered the gnocchi with a gorgonzola cream sauce & walnuts. David asked for no walnuts. Both restaurants were occupied with a lot of diners.

I had hoped for more good dining options in the Maho area as I’m sure others have too. With the new oasis area we have just that. Not only is the food, ambience and service good but it’s so convenient not to have to deal with traffic most days heading back down Airport road. Both restaurants offer Valet parking after 6:30 pm.

We hope to return next Spring for a week then our normal 2 week vacation in the Fall.

[i]Looking forward to reading all future reports, tidbits and such from TTOLers until we can get back and experience the vacation ourselves.

So you can order off the Mr Chow menu and the Roma menu at the same table?

Yes, but ONLY if you eat at the bar (comfortable seats) or at one of the four hi top tables.

Being able to order from both restaurants sounds like a neat idea, hope to check it out!

Thanks for the reports.

Good to know. The bar and high tables are in the Roma section or Mr Chow?

Thank you for all the reports. They were thoroughly enjoyed. I can’t believe your 16 days are over.

Roma is behind bar in a more defined area. the hi tops are in front of bar with full view of Mr Chow. The restaurants both are open areas with same design. You could walk into entrance that says Roma and walk thru to Mr Chow and same with Mr Chow. I have video but can’t upload here.

Hi Louise, hope you and David had a safe trip home. It was very nice to finally meet you in person after reading all your wonderful trip reports on TTOL Perhaps we’ll see you again during future BSV stays. We’re here until Friday, and I must say that we’re not looking forward to going back to the colder weather.
