Becky says:Hi Doug and Swampy, sorry our comment is late but we would like to once again thank the Canasta team for the great holiday we had in May. Also the new year break was the best ever party we've been to. The buffets were out of this world, there was food for everyones taste and it was beautifully presented, excelling anything we've seen prepared before. A bit of advice for all you holiday makers, if you are looking for an enjoyable holiday Canasta is the place to stay, with tasty food, great company, comfortable and spotless rooms, brilliant entertainment and reasonable bar prices. It has become like home from home and we won't be staying anywhere else. Thanks Doug & Swampy, hope to see you for the illuminations. Becky, Lynn, Paddy (Taffy tom tom) & Cath xxx (sorry about the essay)
Our Reply:Hahaha - thanks very much for that kiddo!!!
