Good location in between the city centre and bus station. Very clean. Really comfortable, modern, en-suite double room. Good breakfast. Pleasant patio common area. Given your own key for the front door...generally felt very secure.

It was really busy, full of families having fun as its the South American holidays at the minute. Before tea time Kerry headed out for her first run of 2014, needless to say it nearly killed me. A really nice route though running ...
... flash." So far we have not been able to see it, but tonight as we patiently were waiting, Bob had his binoculars out and exclaimed that he sees green!

The green flash is visible because of mirage (increased refraction, causing the green color). We saw ...
