I would vote for somewhere not on the island, for those of us who are just
flying in and out for the weekend. Cedarbrook Lodge looks nice from a quick

that we shouldn't go somewhere outrageously expensive but we don't need to
go super cheap either. Like you say we want to know things will work well.
