‘The Oceanside Cabana dinner was fabulous! The food was just about the best we had during the whole trip (I think the lobster and blueberry salad was the best salad I’ve ever had), and the service was great. Our butler was sure to take a lot of pictures of us as the sun was setting, which was a nice touch.’ The Normandys, VA. October 2015
