While you're at Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort in St. Thomas, there's one comment that you're bound to hear. It's not, "what stunning views this mountain top hotel has!" Or " that beach really has a lot of fish." No. What you will hear in the lobby, in the restaurants or at the pool is "I can't believe you have to walk up all those steps just to get to the pool!" This irritated me to no end because it seems to me that if you're going to loll around the pool all day, a little step climbing isn't going to kill you. Granted, as you can see from these pix, that staircase wasn't some little 10-12 step number.
This is a real, winding, staircase with 99 steps and you will work your thigh muscles climbing it. But if you're not elderly or disabled, I don't see what the fuss is about. After all, just a few minutes clopping downs those stairs will get you
Nonetheless, the majority of the resort's visitors opted to wait for the shuttle to drop them off at the edge of the pool, lest they have to move around too much. There's nothing that irks me more than complaining tourists. I just feel like they should leave the negative opinions at home and concentrate on enjoying their travels. What's your traveling pet peeve?
