The term used to describe people who try to gatecrash and just generally rain on your parade also known to be filthy and annoying.
Beginning two years ago, folks who wanted to enjoy the resort's beach, or hike through the property to Honeymoon Beach, were asked to pay $10 at the gate. The money would be refunded if you spent at least that much at the beach cafe or the gift shop.
Which isn't tough to do. A couple of iced teas might be enough.
Now, this season, the cost is up to $20. Still easy to do with a sandwich and a beer.
Management justifys the increase saying it has to do with expenses to keep up the property. The Inquiring Iguana thinks that's reasonable. Spending an afternoon there is a luxurious treat, and even though Caneel is required to make its beaches available for public use, there is no requirement to provide access to common areas like the veranda or the patio roof deck or even its rest rooms.
The Virgin Islands On-Line forum has some comments about Caneel's policy. Some smart, some unreasonable.
