I need some information about the Emerald Tower resort in East Demerarra. It is along the Soesdyke-Linden Highway. Can anyone help me? I am planning on going there this month.

Thank you Rasmus.
I know that there probably isn't much info on this place, but does anyone know what kind of birds I should expect to find there?
