I would not chance it. The earliest flight I've taken out of FLL is at 11:20 and that's living on the edge for me.

If you like real british "afternoon tea", you will be disappointed. I love afternoon tea and have had it all over the world. The Peninsula and Harrods have it much much better. There is also a...

HMC the clam shell is not $14pp. It is $14 per clam shell and you get two lounge chairs so in essence, $14 will be good for 2 people. Lovely beach day.
