    ... in a nice bar on the Main Street and met some rowdy English people who were a good laugh, but very loud. Called the hotel at 3.30 but alas the room was still not ready, however at 4pm, it was suddenly available...funny that! Room was nice, with a great view out to the beach. No smoking signs on the balcony "oh do **** off" went for a walk along the waters edge, even got my ankles wet. Was really tired, so fell asleep watching a film so of course woke up at silly o'clock again. ...

The Population is about 80,000 but there are more than 450 restaurants, due to the volume of tourists that arrive everyday of the year and sometimes stay for weeks at a time. It is obviously a very wealthy ...

    ... whole time we were there).

    After we checked in we started yelping immediately to find a place for dinner, because we hadn't eaten since 11am. We both found Los Agaves, a Mexican place not far from the hotel (off the main downtown area, but still in a high traffic area). When we pulled up we could see the line out the door and the line out the door of the Mexican place in the next block, so we knew we were in a good ...

    ... was super friendly, everything was 'no problem!' And a few recommendations for good bars/restaurant were given. Another free upgrade in the bag and we were escorted to our room. And what an amazing room it was! The tallest bed I've ever seen - thankfully it comes with a stool! Up to the roof top pool terrace for a recce, the views from here were fantastic! Went for a stroll down ...
