Difficile de voir l'océan, à moins de monter sur la terrasse, car il est caché par les maisons de l'autre côté de la rue et par les arbres. Les chambres avec climatisation sont spacieuses, agréablement meublées et disposent d'un petit frigo. L'eau chaude est fournie par les capteurs solaires. Le patron est très sympa et nous donne volontiers des conseils - pour trouver une bonne langouste par exemple!

We brought it back to the hostel and ate on the rooftop terrace with Saz, an incredibly ...
... shrieking its head off for most of the flight. Yes, some babies cry in the unfamiliar conditions of a flight and stress of the light and sound during hours they’d normally be sleeping, but this baby didn’t just cry – it screamed the whole time like it was demonically possessed. Parents, please sedate your babies if you must take them on airplanes for everyone’s benefit – theirs, yours, and everyone else’s. We arrived late in Doha in ...
... flavours of the dish
were really pleasant. It really is a mystery to me as I know the kitchen here is obviously good, the chefs look immaculate and it is a more top of the range establishment and so I can only put it down to a one-off aberration. Perhaps this is the local taste but I have not encountered it elsewhere so I don't find that particularly convincing.
I know I should have sent it back but I really didn't want the hassle and the rest of the dishes ...
